Barbieri Spectro Lfp S3

BARBIERI Spectro LFP RT Series 3

The BARBIERI spectrophotometer for automatic measurement of most different materials in Large Format, Flatbed and Industrial Printing.



The Spectro LFP RT Series 3 is the automatic color measuring device for both reflection and transmission in large format, flatbed and industrial printing.

Main features


  • For transparent and reflective media
  • Measuring aperture switchable between 8, 6 and 2mm
  • For heavy and thick materials
  • Supported by most RIP-software
  • 3 reading modes:
    - Automatic measurements
    - Spot measurements
    - Density measurements
  • Some examples of materials which can be measured fully automatically: textiles, glass, backlit film, papers, vinyl, cardboards, plastic plates, gypsum plates, wood, stone and ceramic plates.
  • Available in 2 versions:
    - Spectro LFP RT
    - Spectro LFP Tex (see table below)
  • Upgrade from Tex to RT version


Application fields


  • Creation of ICC profiles for digital output devices for most different materials (both reflective and transparent)
  • Linearization of digital output devices
  • Single measurements of logo-colors (Pantone) with subsequent check of the color-true printing
  • Use as a densitometer to determine density values for films and papers


Recommended accessories


  • Sample holder for different materials
