Zenit Mangimi explain how instant forage analysis results cut out the time spent waiting for lab results.


  • IP 65 Certified

    The NIRS™ DA1650 is purpose built for your feed operation.

    Get your results where you need them – at the production line. 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.
  • Versatile Sample Presentation

    Measure whole grains, flour, cakes, meals and other solid samples in the normal sample holder, and then use the unique gold reflector cup for oil for the next sample. The intuitive touch screen interface makes it fast and easy for any user to switch between sample types.
  • 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.
