100% compatible

Backwards compatible to the NIRS™ XDS™ and NIRSystemII solutions, the NIRS™ DS2500 F allows you to take the best from your existing calibration data and transfer it quickly and easily to the advanced NIRS™ DS2500 F instrument, offering the best-in-class performance.

Unmatched optical performance

Optimize your feed quality with unmatched analysis performance across a broad wavelength range. Whether you are testing for standard parameters like Protein, Fat, Moisture or more difficult ones like Ash, Amino Acids, Fibers, or Starch, the NIRS™ DS2500 F gives you rapid, reliable analysis results for handling intake, improving production and ensuring final product quality.

Factory standardized

It’s easy to get started using the NIRS™ DS2500 F as every instrument that leaves the factory is hardware standardised. Light intensity, bandwidth and wavelength precision are thoroughly controlled in the final stages of production to ensure complete consistency between instruments.

Purpose built

Robust, easy-to-use and IP65 certified the NIRS™ DS2500 F 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.
