K88600 Portable Octane Analyzer with Cetane Index and Cetane Number
The analyzer measures octane number via near-infrared (NIR) transmission spectroscopy utilizing 14 near-infrared emitting diodes with narrow bandpass filters, a silicon detector system, and a fully integrated microprocessor. Simple octane number determination requires three easy steps: sampling a background signal, acquiring two absorption spectra of the gas sample, and then acquiring a second background signal. Analyzer is pre-calibrated for unleaded gasoline and ethanol-blended fuels, and can be calibrated for up to eight additional fuel types.


The analyzer is small, lightweight, and operates on AA batteries or AC. Before each reading, the unit standardizes itself to assure accuracy. The octane number is printed with time and date on the built-in printer. An optional model with a GPS locator and automatic fuel selector is also available. All data can be downloaded via the RS232 port to an external computer.
