The ripeness/hardness tester/penetrometer FHT-1122 is our new top-product. It is small in dimension, easily to transport and light in weight. You can use the device for strawberries, cherries, grapes, peaches, bananas, apricots, plums, melons, citrus, pears and kiwis. It also can be used for vegetables (for example avocados). It helps you in determination and monitoring the optimal harvest time and the softening process during storage. The advantage of digital penetrometer is a higher accuracy and resolution in measurement as opposed to an analog penetrometer.




You can use the device as a hand measuring instrument on site or for the quality control during transport. It also can be used for laboratory experiments. It consists of a probe with a measuring head as well as a digital display showing the measuring results in a resolution of 0,1 degrees of hardness. The FHT-1122 corresponds to the standards DIN 53505, ISO 7619 and ASTM D 2240. Our equipment has a RS-232 interface to transfer the measured values to a laptop or a PC. Software and cable (SW2) are optional available in our shop.


Our ripening tester has 2 different interchangeable test points and can therefore be used for almost all fruit and vegetable varieties to be tested. For use with soft fruit and vegetable varieties, the 7.9mm probe with a high-resolution measuring range of 0.2 - 11.0 N / cm² (soft to hard) is recommended. The universal measuring tip of 11.1 mm covers a range of 0.4 - 22.0 N / cm² (soft to hard).
