- The MA871 is an optical instrument that employs the measurement of the refractive index to determine the % Brix of sugar in aqueous solutions. The method is both simple and quick.
- Samples are measured after a simple user calibration with deionized or distilled water. Within seconds the instrument measures the refractive index of the sample and converts it to % Brix concentration units.
- The MA871 digital refractometer eliminates the uncertainty associated with mechanical refractometers and is easily portable for measurements in the field.
- The measurement technique and temperature compensation employ methodology recommended in the ICUMSA Methods Book (Internationally recognized body for Sugar Analysis). Temperature (in °C or °F) is displayed simultaneously with the measurement on the large dual-level display along with icons for Low Power and other helpful message codes.
