AM 5800 Manual Grain Moisture Meter

Unique among portable moisture meters, the AM 5800 Manual is based on the same high frequency 150 MHz technology and UGMA algorithm as officially approved meters, including the Perten AM 5200-A.

Drawing on the experience from more than 5,000 installed moisture meters, we have designed a battery operated, portable moisture meter benefitting from the accuracy, repeatability and reliability of the AM 5200-A.

The higher frequency signal provides greater penetration of samples and the UGMA (Unified Grain Moisture Algorithm) provides a more accurate result regardless of moisture level, temperature or crop type. Together these make the AM 5800 Manual the most accurate and repeatable portable moisture meter available. It can analyze grains, oilseeds, pulses, beans, lentils, seeds and more for moisture, Test Weight/Hectoliter Weight, and temperature with the same calibrations as the officially approved AM 5200-A.
