Atago PAL Handheld Digital Brix Refractometers - 3820


Atago PAL Handheld Digital Brix Refractometers offer a convenient way in measuring almost any fruit juice, food, or drink, such as soup, sauce, ketchup, tomato sauce, low-sugar jam, or marmalade. No more guessing where the boundary line is, these units give digital readings which eliminates subjectivity and individual differences while saving time and effort.

  • Extremely water resistant (IP65) - Can be washed under running water and will float if accidentally dropped in water
  • HACCP-approved
  • Ergonomically designed for one-handed operation – START key is conveniently located for single hand operation
    The innovative design makes it easy to pour out and remove a sample, but difficult to spill the sample. The SUS sample stage is made of highly durable optical glass to prevent scratching and allows for the sample temperature to conform quickly and evenly to the prism temperature for accurate measurements.
  • Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) digital Brix measurement values are large and easy to read, also shows battery level and temperature
  • Automatic Temperature Compensation (ATC)

Revolutionary new External Light interference (ELI) feature ensures accurate measurements, even outdoors. When intense light penetrates the prism of a digital refractometer, the light waves interfere with the sensor, which may lead to inaccurate measurements. To ensure accurate measurement results, the PAL is programmed with the ELI function which displays the [nnn] warning message when intense direct light is detected. Shading the sample stage with your hand and re-pressing the START key (when the warning message from the ELI function is displayed) will ensure accurate measurement results each time.

Measurement history (up to 100 items) can be read by touching a contactless IC card reader / writer connected to an Android smartphone or a personal computer. PAL series comes with Data Transmission Function with NFC technology.
