Infrared Brix Refractometer: PAL-HIKARi
non destructive brix measurement
- NEW TECHNOLOGY - Atago Digital Hand-held "Pocket" IR (infrared) Brix Meter PAL-HIKARi series.
The Brix (sugar level) can now be measured by placing the fruit on the sample stage with no need for cutting or squeezing; even outside in the field and without the need to remove the fruit - so no more loss of product for sampling. And it no longer requires time-consuming wiping and cleansing after each measurement.
The PAL-HIKARi series uses an integrated LED light source to refract light into and through the fruit under test, diffused it back into the usual sensor for fast, accurate and truly non-destructive measurement.
There are different models to suit many different fruit types, each incorporating a suitably sized cushion which allows for a secure surface contact. Regardless of the fruit shape, PAL-HIKARi fits snug which eliminates measurement discrepancies caused by external light interference.
