The Series 9 uses precision near infrared (NIR) technology to make a continuous, non-contact measurements of moisture content.
Series 9 Measurement Principle
The Series 9 works on the principle that constituents such as moisture (water) within a product discretely absorb certain wavelengths of infrared light. By emitting light at these wavelengths onto the product and then capturing and measuring the reflected unabsorbed light on a light-sensitive detector, the Series 9 computes the level of the moisture within the product. Unlike other technologies, the Series 9 spends 100% of its operation measuring the product.
Using high-speed signal processing, the patented Series 9 “light engine” delivers the highest resolution, on-line NIR measurements available today. This robust gauge is unaffected by changes in process conditions such as product height variation, product temperature variation, ambient lighting and relative humidity changes.

The Series 9 gauge can we be setup in a wide range of configurations based on your process application. As standard, it measures over a 25 mm diameter beam patch, with 10 mm or 60 mm available optionally. The Series 9 is suspended over the process line at a distance of 200 mm from the mean product height, and tolerates product height fluctuations of ±50 mm.
