The Inframatic 8800 was developed to address these requirements. It 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. It is highly portable as it is small, lightweight and can be operated for up to two hours on its internal battery. It incorporates a GPS allowing farmers to identify pockets of high value grain. These results can be plotted on a map allowing farmers to plan harvest and binning strategies. The rapid analysis (moisture and protein results in less than 90 seconds) provides nearly instantaneous analyses helping users to control grain drying, perform field and load-out spot checks, and determine optimal harvest times.
