How many readings can I save in Color Match Explorer?


This is the maximum number of readings you can save in tool internal memory, while there is no limit for readings you can save in Lechler MAP, the Paint Management Software of Lechler. When there is no space left on device, you have to delete some readings you saved to keep on working.

Don’t be unprepared! Get used to transferring your readings to Lechler MAP: it will be easier for you to find them when necessary and dose them using options “recalculation in case of mistake” and “preselection of ready-to-use quantity” of Lechler MAP.

How can I transfer readings from Color Match Explorer to Lechler MAP?

At the moment there is no direct connection SPECTROPHOTOMETER <> LECHLER MAP; so, to transfer a reading you have to use the Color Match Explorer Software.

Once you obtain - and if necessary, correct - the best possible formulation for your colour with the Color Match Explorer Software, you just have to click on the button <SAVE FORMULATION> that you find in the lower left of the main program window and it will be automatically sent to Lechler MAP and registered in the archive of Personal Formulas.
At this point, you can dose it, calculate its Safety Data Sheet or print label with risk phrases, and use all functions already available for Lechler standard formulas.  

In order for this all to work as described above, you have to communicate to Lechler MAP that you have a spectrophotometer connected to your computer.
