This moisture content standard is great for verifying that your F-series hay moisture meter is in calibration. With two electrical resistance values (16% and 22%) to test your meter against, you can be sure that your readings will stand up to the strictest standards of accuracy. The MCS-4 is also available with a letter of certification traceable to NIST.
Delmhorst offers a wide assortment of electrodes known throughout the industry for their durability. All Delmhorst electrodes fit any Delmhorst moisture meter. Below are electrodes that are typically used for this model:
For continuous monitoring during baling. Comes with 30’ cable to run from the sensor mounted in the bale chamber to the meter in the cab. May be used with any model, but is recommended to use with Model FX-2000.
Also available as 1986/40 with 40’ cable for larger balers.
Electrode handle that attaches to the built-in connector on the top of any moisture meter. Can be used with the 830 series prods, 831 short pin disc shaped prod, and 832 long pin disc shaped prod. This is useful for large or high density bales of hay or scrap paper. Two handed operation is recommended over using a prod that connects directly to the top of the meter (like our 1235 series) to minimize stress placed on the meter casing.
Hay is a very important crop for the farming industry. Farmers with livestock rely on top-quality hay to provide forage for their grazing animals when other grazing plants are scarce.
