Start improving today

Seeing those small margins that other analysers can’t, the NIRS DS2500 helps you to fine-tune your production to avoid expensive rework and realize the quality potential of your production. And, by getting just 0.1% closer to target on ash content, you can expect a return on investment in under a year.

A true networker

The NIRS DS2500 is ideal for use in a group of instruments. Factory standardized instruments gives you top data transferability, which helps when sharing calibrations. This makes the NIRS DS2500 a perfect unit to include in a network of instruments where calibration updates and monitoring are controlled centrally.

New NIR reveals value that other analyzers cannot see

The advanced near infrared technology behind the NIRS DS2500 allows you to measure ash and other key parameters such as moisture protein and color across a broad wavelength range of 400 to 2500nm.

Purpose built

Robust, easy-to-use and IP65 certified the NIRS™ DS2500 allows everyone to contribute to quality. Measurements take less than a minute and the instrument is rock solid even when subjected to conditions of damp, dust, vibrations or temperature fluctuations.

Reliable measurements by anyone

Anyone can do reliable tests with the NIRS DS2500 with low risk of operator error. Users just place some sample in the sample cup, push the button and wait a minute for results to appear on screen via the intuitive ISIscan Nova software.

Re use existing calibration data

The NIRS DS2500 is 100% backwards compatible to InfraXact, NIRSsystem II and FOSS XDS instruments. The compatibility makes it easy to leverage calibration data using straightforward migration paths without any loss of performance.
