The Maxwell Client makes it easy to update the Maxwell color repository with measurements and profiles. It "bridges the gap" between the web browser and your computer and uploads measurements automatically into Maxwell Tracks for immediate use anywhere in the world.

The Client directly drives / runs most of the spectrophotometers in the industry, including:

It can also make use of hot folders to upload measurements from other instruments. We are continually expanding Maxwell's compatibility with industry hardware and software.

The Client is a separate app that resides on the user's computer, and can:

NEW!
When an instrument is plugged in and connected to the Maxwell Client, an instrument record will be automatically created in Maxwell. Also, all measurements with the instrument will be tied to it in Maxwell. So if you're wondering if a failed print might be caused by the instrument you can link right to the instrument. List all the measurements it has taken, to see if the instrument might be at fault.

For those who have the MeasureWatch Verify service for an instrument, Maxwell Client will automatically configure itself for verification measurements. The instrument will also appear with the MeasureWatch Verify target symbol in the left menu. MWV.jpg MeasureWatch Verify measurements are performed right in the instrument pane.
