Maxwell Measurement Details
The Details button opens up many pages of diagnostic information and graphs to help see what's going on with your color.
The Result Summary provides:
- Printer and Track information
- The Reference Set and Color Aim used
- Print time and measurement time, if separate
- Instrument used for measurement
- A summary of the Metrics, tolerances, values and Pass / Fail status
The Channel Tab includes diagrams that show:
- TVI (Tone Value Increase)
- Solid Ink Densities (for CMYK measurements)
The Patches Tab provides a patch-by-patch comparison between the sample measurements and the color aims for each patch. The columns include:
- Actual visual representations of the colors (aim and sample)
- L*a*b* values
- deltaE difference
CRF - Cumulative Relative Frequency
CRF- Cumulative Relative Frequency is a graph that is has relatively new acceptance in the printing industry. It represents a quick, visual way to view the error distribution in a target measurement.
- The left axis labeled percentile represents the entire population of patches in the target. It is not a representation of ink values.
- The bottom axis represents delta E values.
- The four-colored background represents a rough grading of acceptability in the printing industry. These are not representative of Maxwell tolerances.
- The general idea is that the blue line representing the measurement should be toward the left side (green) of the graph.
