Perten Instruments Inframatic (IM) 9500 Whole Grain NIR with Results Plus instrument tests whole grains for constituents such as moisture, protein and oil in 25 seconds. The instrument is designed for use in elevators and grain processing environments.
The IM 9500’s software received a National Type Equipment Program (NTEP) Certificate of Conformance. NTEP approval means that the IM 9500 and its software was put through a rigorous set of tests and found to meet or exceed the National Institute of Standards and Technologies (NIST) Handbook’s 44 requirements for testing devices. The purpose of NTEP is to provide a framework to test systematically devices that will be used “for selling, purchasing, exchanging, custody transfer, or establishing the cost for services or hire on the basis of a measurement,” according to the NTEP website.
The Results Plus software, in combination with NetPlus remote, allows users to administrate multiple instruments from anywhere in the world. NetPlus reports allow users to view data from web-enabled devices 24/7 from anywhere in the world. Instruments are fully networkable allowing users to view single or multiple instrument’s results from any net connected device.
The IM 9500 is supplied with a synthetic sample to monitor hardware by checking wavelength scale, path length and test weight quickly and simply. It comes with a five-year warranty on the monochromator, a spare lamp for maximum up-time and includes all available calibrations at no additional cost.
