Inframatic 8800

NIR Grain Analyzer

Near-infrared (NIR) grain testing has been a fixture at large elevators and grain processors for years. With the use of newly available technology, TACS is excited to introduce a tester designed specifically for on-farm use.

Inframatic 8800

Designed for farm conditions, this rugged meter is ideal for testing grain for moisture, protein and oil. An automated shutter protects the tester from light, insects and vermin to ensure reliable, low maintenance operation for years to come. Portable and compact, light enough to hand carry and powered by 12V, or battery (up to 2 hours), the Inframatic 8800 goes with you where you need it most: in the truck, in the cab of the header and to the silo. The optional carrying bag protects the IM 8800 and is useful for transporting the instrument to inspection sites, fields etc. It’s also useful for long-term, protective storage of the instrument after harvest. GPS – The Inframatic 8800 is equipped with a GPS so you can create protein maps of your fields. Make fast harvesting and binning decisions to manage your grain quality. Protein maps allow farmers to extract additional profit by identifying pockets of premium grain. Topography, fertilisation, and run-off are known to cause variation in protein content with-in a field. The Inframatic 8800 helps you get the most value from the grain you are already producing.
