FOSS Infratec NOVA



The global standard for grain analysis. Infratec™ NOVA gives you security, confidence and reliability in your grain analysis. It is a global system for a global market built on 30 years of experience.

Infratec™ NOVA ensures efficient grain testing with cutting edge technology. Based on a database comprising over 50,000 cross checked samples, Infratec™ NOVA offers outstanding accuracy and stability.

The global standard in grain analysis with unrivalled accuracy. Pour in grain and get multiple results in less than a minute. Stay in control of remote instruments through purpose built connectivity tools.

Sample Type
Barley, wheat, corn and other cereals, oilseeds, beans and pulses.

Moisture, protein, oil, test weight, starch, wet gluten, fibre, ash and many more.


ANN - A global industry needs global calibrations
The huge Infratec™ database comprises over 50.000 cross checked samples, PLS and robust ANN-based calibrations building on a wide sample range from many years of harvests. This gives a level of accuracy and stability that enables Infratec™ to test even the most unusual samples anywhere in the world.

FossConnect™ is a centralised networking management solution for Infratec™ NOVA that helps you reduce your production costs and secure the quality of your products. With FossConnect™, you can manage, configure and monitor your instruments remotely from any internet-enabled computer and safeguard your data for whenever you need it.

Established standard worldwide
Infratec™ is officially approved and established worldwide as the standard for determining protein, moisture, oil and starch. Its accurate and reliable results help you to deliver consistent quality.

With Infratec’s patented stabilising technique, you get correct results whatever the weather. For instance, protein is predictable to within 0,1% and it can be measured in temperatures ranging from -4°C to +40 °C.
