The Perten AM5800 is a portable Moisture Meter which analyses wholegrain samples for moisture % and specific weight. This uses a more advanced & accurate method than commonly available whole grain Capacitance based moisture meters i.e. it's the "next step-up".

The AM5800 is the most accurate moisture meter on the market using UGMA (Unified Grain Moisture Algorithm) technology that is used by Merchants.

The Bluetooth connectivity allows you to download Readings to your phone and transmit onwards to any other phone

The Perten AM5800 is a manual Moisture Meter which analyses the moisture levels and specific weight within 20 seconds. The portable and robust system allows farmers to sample check their grain quality levels easily straight from the field, in store and at the dryer. The AM5800 is the most accurate moisture meter on the market using UGMA (Unified Grain Moisture Algorithm) technology that is used by Merchants. The AM5800 can be used for testing moisture in: grains, seeds, pulses, oilseed and beans.

Unique among portable moisture meters, the AM 5800 is based on the same high frequency 149 MHz technology and UGMA algorithm as officially approved meters, Including the Perten AM 5200-A. The higher frequency signal provides greater penetration of samples and the UGMA provides a more accurate result regardless of moisture level, temperature or crop type. Together these make the AM 5800 Manual the most accurate and repeatable portable moisture meter available.

AM 5800 - How to calibrate the scale
 
Why should I consider the AM5800?

The UGMA technology provides the next step up in accuracy from Farmer level Moisture Meters, typically +/- 0.2-0.3% accuracy compared to +/-0.5%.

What value/tonne of crop do you put on achieving greater accuracy?

It depends on your farm size & handling system as well as if you experience any rejections for high Moisture or low Hectolitre weight. If you value accuracy at £1/tonne, it is easy to assess AM5800 value to your farm.

How helpful is the Bluetooth App?

It allows you to download updates to the moisturemeter, view instruction manuals, calibrate the various functions of the machine and store readings on your phone for exporting.

Is the AM5800 easy to use?

Yes - provided instructions are followed

Are instructional YouTube videos available?

Yes – How to operate your AM5800, adjust favourites list, use Bluetooth etc.
