It is proposed to test and statistically evaluate the performance of an on-easel color analyzer built by the authors. It is discovered during the testing program that the device is nonfunctional, and the testing program is re-directed toward finding the causes of the instrument mal-function. It is concluded that the particular characteristics of the cadmium sulfide cell employed, and the electronics of the device, introduce non-linearities which make readings non-repeatable. It is nevertheless felt that the concepts involved in the device, and in the testing program as originally envisioned, are sound, and that further development of the device would produce a useful color printing tool.
