Software

The graphical software and a large touchscreen make the AgriCheck analyzer easy to use. The operator simply selects the product and fills the grain into the funnel or puts the powder or paste sample in a sample cup at the top of the machine. The results are displayed on the screen and can be sent to an optional printer.
