Mango Quality Meter – F751

Description

Measure the dry matter, brix and ripeness of mangoes with the new Mango Quality Meter, featuring advanced technology.

Mango growers can now predict fruit quality and maturity with accuracy, even whilst the mango is still on the tree.

The Mango Quality Meter uses near infrared analysis to measure the dry matter in the mango. It sends light particles into the avocado and then measures interactance of the light with molecules in the fruit. By evaluating the dry matter, we are able to gauge the maturity of mangoes.

The measurement takes only 12 seconds and the fruit is not punctured with the process – saving product samples, that would have been damaged with previous technology.

Electronic measurements are as easy to take as pushing a button, the data can then be transferred to a computer for analysis and record keeping.

Fruit Maps is the free interactive harvest map application that has been created by the manufacturer in association with Central Queensland University.

Applications:

  • Farmers and growers for planning of harvest time
  • Quality assessment – reduce spoilage and increase the quality and consistency in an objective way

Features:

  • Lightweight and portable for in-the-field use
  • Non-destructive measurements – no wastage of fruit samples
  • Easy-to-use – just "point and shoot" to measure
  • Fast – scans take 4 – 6 seconds of the sample
  • Measure dry matter and brix in mangoes accurately, with no guesswork
  • Built-in GPS for quick crop mapping
  • Consistent and objective measurements
  • WI-Fi capable
  • There is less product wastage and spoilage through the use of more accurate data predictions
  • Cost of a specific meter for mangoes is more economical that the cost for the general F-750 Produce Quality Meter
