Battery operation


  • The KERN ORM refractometers are accurate and universal maintenance free digital handheld refractometers
  • The typical and practical design is suitable for a quick and convenient everyday use and is characterized by its easy-using and robustness
  • With their handy design, they are ideal for convenient and rapid everyday use
  • The large, easy-to-read display with integrated temperature display supports the user to reliably determine the measurement
  • The integrated automatic temperature compensation (ATC), avoids the manual conversion of the measurement. This allows a quick and efficient usage of the instrument
  • A quick and user-friendly calibration of the refractometer is possible at any time using commercially available distilled water
  • The refractometers of the KERN ORM series are protected against dust and splash water according to the international protection class IP65. You can rinse the refractometer under running water after use
  • Included with the delivery:
    - prism cover
    - pipette
    - storage box
    - 1 × AAA battery
    - user instructionThis model is particularly suitable for determining the sugar content of the original wort of beer in its unfermented state. The value can be read straightaway, without having to be converted, using the Original gravity (specific weight) and Degrees Plato scales. Alternatively the display can be switched to show Brix or the refractive index.
  • The main scope of applications is:
    - Beer brewers
