    Question Ricoh 9100 ES-1000 vs ES-2000

    We have an old calibration unit from a Xerox 5000 Color (ES-1000) as well as a new ES-2000 that came with the Ricoh 9100.

    Sometimes I have to take the ES-2000 unit to do some work on the Profilier Suite so I leave the ES-1000 with the operator to use for calibrating the Ricoh in the mean time. However I know the two units do not provide the same type of features but am not terribly familiar with the Ricoh's Fiery Color system.

    What are the potential differences we could see calibrating with the ES-1000 vs the ES-2000?

    ES-1000 has a fixed measurement mode (M0 or M2) depending on the filter installed in the device that you purchased.

    ES-2000 is a single pass - M0 mode and 2 pass M1, or M2 mode.

    As it turns out - Density measurements seen in Calibrator are very similar regardless of the mode. Not identical - but close - so for calibration the ES-2000 and ES-1000 perform equally well.

    For other tasks - the ES-2000 considered better.

    Xerox 5000????? That's an OLD system, which makes that an OLD ES-1000.

    The biggest difference right now is that the ES-1000 needs refreshed and re-certified by X-Rite.

    Ya the 5000's are ancient beasts, we only have this ES-1000 because Xerox TSR's forgot to pack it when they removed them a few years ago.

    Yeah, that happens all the time. You can use it; just be aware that its accuracy is diminished. To what degree and is it significant to your workflow, I don't know.
