Infratec™ NOVA - 1

InfratecTM NOVA Grain Analyser for grain and flour InfratecTM NOVA is the ‘best-in-class’ whole grain analyser using globally recognised near-infrared transmittance technology to simultaneously test multiple parameters (moisture, protein, oil, starch, etc.) in a broad range of grain and oilseed commodities. Offering unparalleled levels of speed and usability, InfratecTM NOVA can test grain at rates up to 20% faster than other NIR solutions. True networking and identical instruments reduce instrument management work required for consistent test results throughout grain receival networks. There are optional modules for flour analysis, test weight and flexible sample handling. Grains, oilseeds and beans and pulses – they can all be tested quickly, easily and accurately for payment and segregation. Most grains or oilseeds can be analysed directly without any grinding or sample preparation Moisture, protein, oil, test weight and many more Dedicated Analytical Soluti

The easiest solution for reliable grain testing If you need to determine the value of grains and oilseeds you need to know that quality in the fastest and most reliable way possible. One way InfratecTM NOVA does this is by minimising operator training requirements during the busy harvest season and reducing the risk of operator error. A tablet-like screen mounted on the instrument offers intuitive touch-screen interaction. The ease of operation is further supported by FOSS’ purpose-built ISIscan NOVATouch operator software. This is ideal, for example, for getting temporary staff up to speed...

Instant payback Just plug in the instrument to your power supply and you are up and running, ensuring a fast return on investment. No experience is needed. Behind each instrument there is a proven ANN calibration that performs unaffected by sample temperature changes, ensuring accurate results from the very first analysis. Simple, out-of-the-box installation and the stability of the instrument over time minimises operational concerns. Infratec networks have been recognised by both commercial and governmental authorities from the introduction of the first network in 1991, and today more than...

Technology The power of Infratec™ NOVA NIT Near Infrared measurements of grain have shown superior performance when measuring in transmittance mode instead of reflectance mode. Transmittance mode measurements are made in a lower wavelength range, 400 – 1050 nm, whereas the primary information for reflectance measurements is obtained between 1100 – 2500 nm. The higher energy level of the light in the lower range allows for deeper penetration into the kernels, so not only the surface but also the inner part of the kernel is measured. All of this allows a larger sample volume when...

eliminates complexity at instrument level and allows a specialist to monitor and manage remote instruments. Automated surveillance alerts and new reporting options ensure that each part of the analysis process is monitored, managed and optimised at a level of detail and accuracy not previously possible. The InfratecTM NOVA can be used as a stand-alone or as a networked unit via MOSAIC software. Transfer of data between instrument and LIMS systems as well as remote control of the unit is facilitated by the instrument software. Identical instruments An Infratec network consists of a group of...
