ATAGO PAL Pocket Digital Refractometer

The ATAGO PAL Pocket Digital Refractometer is a completely new and redesigned digital hand-held instrument that will change the traditional conceptions of refractometers. The PAL’s surprisingly compact size makes it easy to carry around and use indoors and outdoors. Weighing only 3.5 ounces, it can be placed in a pocket or hung from the user’s neck or belt and measurements can be made easily while holding it in just one hand. It takes quick and accurate reading and has an easy-to-use automatic temperature compensation.

The prism is made of scratch resistant optical glass and the entire unit can be washed under running water. Units can also be calibrated with water. No expensive or messy standards are required for the ATAGO Pocket Refractometers. To operate, simply put a drop of a sample on the prism surface and press the START key. The value will be displayed in just three (3) seconds. With a digital LCD display, users can precisely record the measurement value without any operator interpretation, as with traditional analog refractometers.

With a wide measurement range, the PAL-1 model can measure almost any fruit juice, food, or drink, such as soup, sauce, ketchup, tomato sauce, low-sugar jam, or marmalade, the PAL-2 can test jelly, honey, or concentrated juice, and the PAL-alpha measures most any sample at a reasonable price. The Automatic Temperature Compensation function (ATC) enables users to take measurement readings regardless of ambient temperature. The PAL has an international protection rating of IP65—allowing users to rinse off the sample by running water on the sample stage.

A factory certificate of calibration is available for this instrument. Units are powered by two AAA batteries (included), and measures 4 3/8”L x 2 5/32”W x 11 ¼”D.
