The HI96785 Honey Color Portable Photometer is used to measure the transmittance of light in order to determine the color of honey. The HI96785 combines accuracy and ease of use in an ergonomic, portable design that ends the days of judging color by “eye “. Hanna’s portable photometers feature an advanced optical system; the combination of a special tungsten lamp, a narrow band interference filter, and silicon photodetector ensure accurate photometric readings every time.
