Farnsworth-Munsell 100 Hue Test

X-Rite® Farnsworth-Munsell 100 Hue Test

X-Rite® Farnsworth-Munsell 100 Hue Test is easy-to-administer with a highly effective method for measuring an individual’s color vision. The munsell color test consists of four trays containing a total of 85 removable color reference caps (incremental hue variation) spanning the visible spectrum. Color vision aptitude is detected by the ability of the test subject to place the color caps in order of hue.

This quick, easy, and precise test is designed to determine color vision anomalies and detailed color discrimination. Color is integral to the products you design and produce. So good color vision is essential for anyone making color decisions.

The Farnsworth-Munsell 100 Hue Test is ideally suited for personnel working with or approving color such as artist, designers, engineers, technicians, production, manufacturing and marketing personnel. Before your customers can see color quality, you must be able to see and judge it first.

How the Test Works

Arrange four trays of colored caps in hue order. There is a predetermined sequence for each tray. The closer you are to the correct sequence, the better your color discrimination. A daylight viewing booth is required such as the X-Rite (GretagMacbeth) Judge II Viewing Booth to correctly administer this test.

The Farnsworth Munsell 100 Hue Test examines hue discrimination ability often used in vocational and diagnostic applications. The munsell color test has proven to provide reliable color vision evaluation results which can be applied to many occupational and psychological situations. The Farnsworth Munsell 100 Hue Test remains the most comprehensive color vision test on the market. As the original manufacturer, Munsell certify the accuracy of every test.
