We have developed and produced complete instrumentation for many different optical measurement tasks by working closely with our customers and incorporating their application-specific experience.

Plants need nutrients to reach optimal growth potential. However, it is also important to limit the amount of fertilizers to avoid excess costs and environmental damage. The 2nd generation of the N-sensor, the N-Sensor® ALS [Active Light Source] is an active sensor with its own light source. The innovative, patented measuring technology of the N-Sensor® ALS enables a variable-rate fertilizer application regardless of the ambient light conditions.
tec5 developed the N-Sensor and N-Sensor® ALS for Yara Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG and is responsible for serial production, logistics, servicing and further development. There are more than 1,000 units in the field worlwide. This successful measurement system has received many awards and put our partner ahead of its competitors by several years.
