If you read the data sheet very closely, you will notice that this
device is not a colorimeter. It will only return you the
nearest Pantone color to the one you are measuring, and
the color coordinates of that Pantone color.

Because it doesn't return the color coordinates of the color
you are measuring, you simply can't use it for profiling.
