Epson ABW Linearity

I have been lent an X-Rite I1-Pro Spectrophonometer so I thought I thought it would be a good opportunity to see how linear the ABW driver actually is

I created a custom curve using the 21x4 profile chart supplied in the QTR folder.

The chosen paper I used was Pinnacle Cotton Rag 310gsm

Although the curve is not 100% linear, it does show that contrary to what people think of the ABW, it does not crush the blacks and can retain a fair amount of detail right down to RGB 6
