The HI-96785 Honey Colour Portable Photometer is used to measure the wavelengths of light passed through the honey in order to determine the colour value expressed in millimeters. The HI-96785 combines accuracy and ease of use in an ergonomic, portable design that ends the days of judging colour 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.


Battery powered – Allows use away from a power source. Batteries are included with all battery operated products.
Water Resistant – Can withstand temporary exposure to water, but should not be submerged or washed under running water.

HI-96785 Honey Colour Grade Portable Photometer information

Hanna's extended description

Portable honey colour grade analyser

The HI-96785 portable analyser is for the determination of honey colour. 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. The exclusive cuvette locking system ensures that the cuvette is inserted into the measurement cell in the same position every time to maintain a consistent 10mm path length.

  • Calibrates 100% transmittance with a glycerol standard
  • Auto-shut off
  • Digital colour analysis of honey from 0-150 mm Pfund

  • Key features

  • Automatic shut off after 10 minutes of non-use when the meter is in measurement mode. Prevents wastage of batteries in the event the meter is accidentally left on.
  • Battery status indicator - Indicates the amount of battery life left.
  • Error messages - Messages on display alerting to problems including no cap, high zero, and standard too low.
  • Cooling lamp indicator - To maintain the desirable wavelength to be used for absorbance, it is necessary to ensure components are not overheated from the heat generated by the tungsten lamp. Each photometer is designed to allow a minimal amount of time for components to cool. The cooling lamp indicator is displayed prior to a reading being taken.
