On-farm NIR grain analyzer

An on farm grain analyzer has been desirable for some time. The demands on such an instrument are high, however, and must balance many requirements. It must be rugged and robust. It must be portable to tote around the field. It must be simple to operate, but sophisticated enough to provide accuracy similar to elevator and lab instruments. And it must do it all in a cost-effective manner.

Recent technological developments have allowed us to develop just such an instrument. The Inframatic 8800 uses solid state components and diode array technology meaning no moving optical components. The lack of moving parts allows us to align and match instruments at the factory – one instrument is exactly like the next. This means the instruments are accurate, repeatable, and reproducible.

The Inframatic 8800 is standardized to our elevator/lab instrument – the Inframatic 9500. The Inframatic 9500 is well established in the market and is an approved for payment instrument in many countries. It has approvals in the USA, Germany, and Australia to name a few.
