Technology boost for CropScan

Presented by

A dial-up mechanism for selecting pathlength and an in-built touch screen are drawcards for grain farmers with Next Instruments' 3000X On Farm Whole Grain Analyser.


A manually-adjusted pathlength cell to cater for different grains is the most unique feature of Next Instruments’ new On Farm Whole Grain Analyser.

The CropScan 3000X has been introduced to replace the 1000H model and has also been described by the New South Wales-based manufacturer as a ’little brother’ to the existing 3000B and 3000BT models.

The 3000X uses exactly the same optics and electronics as these models, Next Instruments says, with a focus on performance and also a simple user interface for measuring protein, moisture, oil and starch in crops such as wheat, barley, oats, sorghum, corn, soybeans, canola, lupins and peas.


Next Instruments’ CropScan 3000X grain analyser will replace the previous 1000H model and is seen as the ‘little brother’ to the manufacturer’s 3000B and 3000BT models.

A dial-up mechanism for selecting the correct pathlength has been added to the 3000X, replacing the inserts or spacers used to change the pathlength in the 1000H.

This software prompts the operator to select the desired pathlength and the newest model also offers a 7-inch (18cm) touch screen with 8GB of storage, Ethernet and USB ports and the ability to select up to five constituents for as many products as required.

The 3000X can also be used with the company’s CropNet grain data management software, which is capable to running simultaneously on a second monitor with the 3000X’s software.

Next Instruments also signed a deal with CNH Industrial last year, enabling their products to be supplied directly to Case IH and New Holland customers from their Sydney factory, while also allowing Case IH and New Holland dealers to directly receive sales, technical and service support.
