The CA-100 comes with a sensing probe external to the device and has been a standard of the CRT manufacturing industry since 1990.

Communication with the computer is via an RS-232C cable (CA-100) or a USB cable (CA-100 Plus) 

   Reference instrument for white-and color balancing on CRT displays The worldwide reference unit CA-100, the successor to the legendary TV color analyzer II, is characterized by its ease of use. The very lightweight tristimulous receptor head is simply held in front of the television or monitor and the measurement values appear immediately on the large display. A rubber lip on the receptor head minimizes the effects of ambient light. The measurement values can be displayed as luminance (cd/m² or ftl) with standard color values (xy) or color temperature (T, äuv) or RGB values. A programmable LED display shows additionally the deviation from a reference value using an analogue display. The special highlight of the CA-100 is the display of the RGB values, obtained via an optional analyzer card. A patented algorithm determines the necessary conversion calculation from standard color values to RGB values for a measured reference monitor, which allows a very simple white balance. At many service facilities for major monitor producers, the CA-100 is even used in the control circuit together with proprietary software to enable fully automatic white balance. The unit can be ordered with the customer's choice of a 2m or 5m cable for the receptor head. The CA-100 can save information about 11 reference monitors including their alphanumeric designations. With an optional expansion card the memory can be increased to hold up to 100 references. In addition, up to 5 receptor heads can be attached to enable the online measurement of entire image tubes. Besides the RS-232C interface, an optional GP-IB board can be used. Of course, a V-Sync. input allows the synchronization of the CA-100 with the image reproduction. PAL, NTSC, and universal synchronization are permanently pre-programmed. User calibration of the instruments is also possible. When used with the spectroradiometer CS-21 and the CS-S2w software, multiple CA models can be quickly and easily synchronized with each other and with the same reference monitor
