It gives an incredible accuracy and repeatibility (Around 1.5% when tested on calibrated foams) It comes with : - The machine itself equiped with a load cell (capacity 5 Kg), stepper motor and computer communication system - A 8 mm specific cylindrical tip in plastic (Acetal) = 0.5 cm2 standard for apple penetrometry - A spring system to maintain the apple on table during measurement (The apple will stay on the table, and will not move when the tray goes back) - A software for Windows (All versions from XP / vista till Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and Windows 10) - One table with apple (hemispheric) profile - One flat table - Power cable (110 to 220 Volts) and USB Cable The machine works connected to a PC, its precision is +/- 0.1 grams, resolution 1 gram, maximum pressure : 4.6 Kg = 9.2 Kg/Cm2. Minimum pressure 50 grams. Tare is made automatically before each cycle The software can be Gram version or MilliLb version : You can classify your batches, display a curve, export to Excel and consult previous batches and statistics Just place your apple on the table, and press a button ! You obtain the firmness expressed in grams or Lb within less than 5 seconds.. With an excellent accuracy compared to existing systems on the market Datasheet :
