To operate, fill the stainless steel measuring chamber with sample material; no prior sample preparation is required. Use the keypad to select the correct material calibration curve. Common curves are included in the software or use the customer calibration function for special products. In seconds, sample temperature in Fahrenheit or Celsius, and moisture content from 5 to 60%, appear on the large, back-lit, LCD display.
A built-in datalogger stores up to 10,000 entries with suppliers’ data and batch numbers. Measurements can be transferred to a computer or printer. An integrated online function allows stored data to be transferred to other third-party programs.
