The Infratec NOVA grain analyser from the company FOSS has been approved for analysis of moisture in grain by the National Metrological Institute in Germany (known as PTB).
The approval was granted after an extensive evaluation of the instrument assessing not only its performance in moisture analysis, but also the robustness and security of the software systems.
Official approvals are required in a range of countries for official measurement of grain quality, for example, for payment to farmers for their grain deliveries. Further approvals for the Infratec NOVA are underway in all countries where the Infratec 1241 (the previous generation) is currently approved such as France, the United States and Australia. These are expected in the near future.
