The Series 9 uses precision NIR (near infrared) technology to make a continuous non-contacting measurement of the moisture content.

Measurement Principle

The Series 9 works on the principle that constituents such as moisture (water) within a food 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.

Using high-speed signal processing, the patented Series 9 “light engine” delivers the highest resolution on-line NIR measurements available today and is unaffected by changes in process conditions such as particle size variation, product height variation, product temperature variation, ambient lighting and relative humidity changes.

Place in the Process

The Series 9 is typically located over a conveyor belt at a key point in the process: just after a drying process for example, where the product can be measured to give meaningful feedback for process and quality control.

The Series 9 can be incorporated conveniently into closed-loop control systems, using its digital or analog connectivity options, while data can be displayed locally for operators using the Series 9 Operator Terminal or Gauge Control Interface.

The Series 9 is used in conjunction with one or more Series 9 peripheral devices to facilitate data display, networking and process connectivity. Gauges and devices are Ethernet enabled and connect to each other via standard Cat5E cable and all run on 24V DC power.
