  • IP 65 Certified

    The NIRS™ DA1650 is purpose built for your bone meal production.

    Get your results where you need them – at the production line or in the laboratory. The sealed DDA platform withstands vibration, dust or spills that can occur during regular use by plant operators. The NIRS™ DA1650 has been designed for high performance in the hardest production environments: Ambient temperature 5-40 °C, storage temperature -20 °C to 70 °C and ambient humidity <93% RH.

  • FossAssure™

    FossAssure™ is a NIRS™ DA1650 digital service designed to reduce product waste, secure brand protection and increase profitability by ensuring the quality and precision of your analytical results. Besides, FossAssure™ services will also improve instrument uptime and reduce production costs by optimising the operation and the performance of your instruments.

  • ANN Calibrations

    Because your new NIRS™ DA1650 analyser comes pre-calibrated, you can get straight down to work with no additional costs.
    Global Artificial Neural Network (ANN) calibrations cover a variety of grains, fresh forage and feed ingredients. Results for key parameters such as Protein, Moisture and Ash are delivered simultaneously in seconds to an accuracy matching reference analysis.
