Potato product reflectance meter released by Photovolt Instruments
Photovolt Instruments has released its new Stainless Steel 557 (5G) reflectance instrument.
The 577 (5G) unit is capable of measuring potato slabs, macerated chips, fried potatoes and fries. Color filters ensure measurements precisely mimic the color responses of the human eye.
Another key feature is calculation of Munsell number and L*, a, b numbers. Data measurements are stored in Excel format. In addition, the data can be uploaded to a host computer, saving valuable time and energy. Bluetooth allows displaying of all the data on a smart device (iPhone, Android or similar).
