Electronic Fruit Size Measure and DataLogger
Size does count ! 
Whether you're a fruit farmer, researcher, quality controller, fruit dealer - if you work with fruit, you'll know why it's so important to measure fruit size: 
  • To obtain information for growth and size distribution curves per orchard or variety. 
  • To compare data from different orchards or years. 
  • To improve thinning policy. 
  • To determine percentage small fruit still on tree. 
  • To monitor soil moisture stress - fruit size is directly correlated with soil moisture. 
Let technology lighten the workload 
The EFM (Electronic Fruit Size Measure) is a product that makes the measuring of fruit a lot easier. Here's how it works: 
  • EFM is a hand-held device that measures the full diameter of fruit on the tree. 
  • The readings are captured on the DataLogger and can then be transferred to PC for more intensive analysis. 
  • Only one person is needed to both measure and capture the data. 
  • Software as well as a calibrating disc are included in the package. 
  • The DataLogger connects to a Digital Caliper (any Mitutoyo model), EFM or both
    * The standard Mitutoyo data cable connects to the DataLogger
    Fruit for thought
    These are the benefits the EFM offers you: 
  • Cuts down on paperwork - it measures, captures and downloads fruit size electronically. 
  • Saves time and labour - only one person is needed to measure, capture and analyse the data. 
  • The custom configuration allows you to set parameters like orchard names and number of fruit per tree to be measured. 
  • It's easy to use. The software supplied with the system runs on Windows 95/98/NT and allows for easy downloading. 
  • Output data is in ASCII format - the captured data is saved in a comma delimited format. You can use the data with most of the available spreadsheets and/or database applications (MS Excel, Lotus 123, Quatro  Pro, etc). 
  • Can store up to 12 000 fruit sizes. 
  • It's all in the system 
    To run the download software, you need a computer with at least: 
  • Windows XP, 2003. 
  • Serial Port. 

  • DataWin - program to download from DataLogger
