Precision Near Infrared Analysis (NIR)

Infratec™ employs Near Infrared analysis in the transmission mode (NIT), a non-destructive spectroscopic technique that makes use of the naturally occurring electromagnetic spectrum. The NIR region is the area of the spectrum defined by wavelengths as between 700nm and 2500nm. The Infratec™ has a wavelength range of 570 – 1100 nm.

Fast and Flexible

The Infratec™ 1241 makes it easy to switch between small and large kernels, for example, from rapeseed to barley. Infratec is self-adjusting according to the selected commodity type.

Unaffected by temperature

Grain is analyzed during widely varying conditions, from hot summer days during harvest to cold winter deliveries. Thanks to Infratec’s patented stabilizing technique, you get correct results whatever the weather.

Unmatched calibration stability

The huge Infratec database comprises over 50,000 cross checked samples, PLS and robust ANN-based calibrations building on a wide sample range from over ten years of harvests. This gives a level of accuracy and stability that enables Infratec able to analyze even the most unusual samples.

Expand capabilities with additional modules

The Infratec™ 1241 is part of a modular system that includes a Flour module, a Test Weight module and a Sample Transport module to test small samples, wet samples and liquids.
