  • Does this product come with a warranty?

  • All devices from Felix Instruments – Applied Food Science come with a 12-month warranty at the point of sale. The warranty covers repairing and replacing defective parts of the instrument that were manufactured directly by Felix Instruments. The warranty does not cover wear and tear, neglect, misuse, accident, or excessive deterioration. Further, unauthorized repair and alteration by an unauthorized party voids the warranty. More information can be found in the operation manual of your instrument.

  • Is the Melon Quality Meter waterproof?

  • The Melon Quality Meter is not designed to be waterproof and should not be used underwater. The Melon Quality Meter is designed to be water-resistant. Use in light rain is fine, however, there are electronics inside of the Melon Quality Meter that can be damaged from water entering the instrument, so it is not recommended to use the Melon Quality Meter during heavy rainfall.

  • What are the operating conditions of this product?

  • The recommended operating temperature range for the Melon Quality Meter is 0 – 50° Celsius.

  • What varieties can I measure with the Melon Quality Meter?

  • The Melon Quality Meter is equipped with robust chemometric models for trait prediction in Honeydew, Cantaloupe, and similar varieties.

  • Do I need to build my own melon model?

  • No! The Melon Quality Meter is preloaded with a robust model and fully calibrated when it leaves out production facility.
