NIR-6300 Online Moisture Analyzer | IP67 Harsh Environment Sensors

The IP67 rating of the NIR-6300 Series has been developed to withstand severe wash-downs, excessive dust environments, and to protect it against the effects of immersion. Its rugged stainless steel enclosure makes it ideal for harsh environments, high temperatures, and aggressive food grade applications.

IR Analyzer Options

The Harsh Environment Analyzer’s standard features include an integrated liquid or air vortex cooling system that is rated from 0°C to 85°C; additional options are available to exceed this operating range. A number of options, depending upon your specific application, are available contingent upon your environmental operating temperature and whether or not it is a food grade application.

Engineered Quality and Durability

Sensortech is unique in its ability to deliver dependable performance through its advanced IR technology, leading edge manufacturing processes, and comprehensive testing and quality control standards. An emphasis on durability had been placed on the NIR-6300 during its development in order to bring Sensortech’s high standard of performance to industrial applications.

Near Infrared Reflectance

Sensortech filters a halogen light source into a series of pulses of specific wavelengths. The filtered beam of wavelengths is directed onto the surface of your product and measures the backscattered energy against a reference source. The consitutent being measured, typically moisture, is calculated through a specialized amplitude ratio algorithm providing a precision measurement based on your products molecular structure.

NIR-6300 Performance

  • Innovative Optical Design
    The IR Series optical design provides a foundation of measurement stability and reliabiliy. High precision tolerances of machined parts and alignment of optical components enusure optimal performance.
  • Single-Point, Dual-Purpose Detector
    The long established Quadrabeam Principle combines the measurement light path and the direct (prime) light path onto a single detector eliminating variations due to aging and operating temperature more effectively than expansive matched dual detector products. The large surface area detector (10mm sq.) minimizes error due to product height variation.
  • Collimated Energy Source
    Effective use of power dramatically increases optical efficiency enabling the instrument to run significantly cooler. The reduced operating temparature inherently reduces stress on electronics and power supplies, increases the life of the instrument and further reduces costs associated with added temperature conditioning.
  • Optimized Electronic Signal Conditioning
    Oversampling, 16-bit resolution and multiple-level digital filtering minimize signal noise. Proprietary design and state of the art electronic technology further enhances instrument performance.

Process Integration

Integrating moisture measurement and control into your process is a simple task with the IR Series moisture analyzers. A wide range of communication protocols are available for a networked multi-sensor configuration or as a stand-alone instrument.

Communication Protocols

The NIR-6000 includes standard features such as Ethernet TCP/IP, RS-232, RS-422/485 and three self-powered isolated 4-20mA analog outputs designed to integrate into your distrubuted system. Implementing continuous moisture measurement into your process is a simple task with Sensortech.

Local Moisture Display

HMI interfaces or Remote Digital Displays are mounted at the point of measurement and provides a stand-alone intelligent interactive interface to the IR Series analyzer or a visual indication of your processes moisture control status.

Management Software

The NIR-6000 Series analyzers include a proprietary PC based software package that offers a detailed view of your production process from a desktop or laptop computer.

Measurement display, data-logging, calibration utilities and network configurations are among the many features included with your NIR-6000 Series Management Software.
