The IR Series of moisture analyzers are a Moisture Measurement and Control System designed for the continuous monitoring of your product using Near Infrared Reflectance (IR) technology. Its rugged design provides accurate, real-time and non-contact measurements in the most demanding manufacturing environments. Its dynamic technology engineered for durability and precision measurement is suitable for most industrial applications. The IR Series joins its precision measurement with Sensortech’s Industrial Grade signature.

Premium Moisture Analyzer

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

NIR-6000 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

Continuous monitoring of your product’s moisture composition provides real-time and non-contact measurements that can be integrated into your process control system, PLC, controller, or configured to standalone with Sensortech’s Management Software or an HMI interface.

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.


Network Communication Ethernet 4-20mA and RS-232

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.
