F-750 Produce Quality Meter

The F-750 Produce Quality Meter uses near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy to estimate quality metrics such as dry matter, Total Soluble Solids (TSS or Brix), titratable acidity, and color. Working like a high-powered flashlight, the F-750 sends particles of light into a commodity, then measures the NIR light interactance with molecular components inside of the commodity to quantify user-selected traits.

    • Non-destructive estimation of fruit maturity and sweetness using tested algorithms
    • Links orchard temperature, and the effect of tree canopy management, with fruit quality
    • Transflective display is easily viewable outdoors
    • GPS for easy crop mapping
