1. What is MILKOTESTER?

Milkotester LTD is high-tech Company for production of measuring devices for the dairy
industry, under the trade name MASTER. Milkotester produces series of portable ultrasonic
milk analyzers for fast analysis of FAT, solids-non- fat (SNF), protein, lactose, added water,
freezing point, ph, salts, conductivity, milk sample temperature and density of one of the same
sample directly after milking, in milk collecting centers and during processing. Also,
Milkotester offers thermostatic devices for antibiotic and inhibitor tests.

2. What are the advantages of Ultrasonic method?

Ultrasonic technology overcomes some major deficiencies of the Infrared method. Due to the
ultrasonic technology:

1. Milk analyzers measure directly cold milk samples starting from 5°C.
2. No periodical calibration needed
3. Milk analyzers‘ accuracy is independent from the milk acidity
4. Possibility to analyze all types of milk

3. How and where can I use the milk analyzers MASTER?

Thanks to the milk analyzers Master, the milk analyses passed from the laboratories to the
farms, milk collecting centers, and small milk producers. With 12 V power adapters the milk
analyses can be moved in milk collecting vehicle.

Possessing high accuracy and measurement speed, minimal power consumption without usage
of consumables, milk analyzers Master are attractive for the dairy industry, easy to operate,
low cost maintenance and affordable price.

Milk analyzers Master are suitable for usage not only for control in big laboratories. Devices
are appropriate for mini dairies to guarantee the important economical parameters as FAT and
protein, where the accurate results allow fast corrections of the production for optimal end
results. Milk analyzers Master are a solution to analyze the milk composition used in: analysis
of milk for payment in order to ensure equitable payment to dairy farmers, milk
standardization to improve the quality, control process and economy in the dairies, improving
of the milk-giving herd to optimize the practices of feeding and breeding.

4. What are the advantages of milk analyzers Master when compared to other
ultrasonic milk analyzers?

06% What is the reason? When analyzing water (instead of milk) results for FAT are close to zero. After you turn on the power at normal condition the Main PCB starts the pump in order to drain any sample residues. Broken Main PCB module.03% Fat = 0. the analyzer is powered by adapter with 12 V output. check the power supply with multimeter. If the device is powered from another source. How I can check the condition of the working of the various modules? There are several possible reasons if there is no information on the display after the analyzer is switched on: 1. LM2 P1 and Master Pro P1 are with one peristaltic pump for measuring system. 11. therefore are not shown on the display. 9. such as car battery must be ensured correct power supply of the switching adapter. while LM2 P2 and Master Pro P2 are with two peristaltic pumps – one for the measuring system and another for the cleaning system. Note that this happens (you should here the noise of the running pump). 10. What is the difference between Master LM2/Master Pro P1 and P2. 3. The analyzer is switched on. but there is no information on display. Possible reason for that can be a problem . Why there are variations in the results. There are variations in the results out of measuring range. Broken LCD module or no connection with the Main PCB. then Freezing point and Added water are completely wrong . There is no available power supply(can be checked without opening of the milk analyzer box) 2. In this case: please check the cables and the connectors between LCD and Main PCB and adjusting the coupling between them. What is the normal power supply of the milk analyzer? In normal mode. If any doubts about the proper operation of the device please. This procedure is performed with the power off and open box of the device.8. allowing P2 to be automatically cleaned without operator intervention.08% Fat = 0. look the same in appearance? Main difference between both models is the cleaning system. when analyzing water (instead of milk) Example from measurements: Fat = 0. We recommend making assessments with real milk samples only.

This can be checked without opening of the milk analyzer box. then you must open the analyzer and to turn it on. 3. If we have not got detailed information. It is recommended to connect the USB cable to the milk analyzer before switching the device on. Did you calibrate the device or it works with factory calibration? 7. 3. Possible causes of communication problems are as follows: 1. How long have you used the device? 2. mention the period) and after that the problem appeared 3. How long the device worked properly? 6. 4. operating with the analyzer is not possible without working USB 2. Immediately after delivery e. 4. This avoids interruptions in the connection. If the analyzer beeps it means that the Main PCB works and then you must check the connections with the LCD module. switch off the analyzer immediately and send it to the nearest available service center. of the Main PCB or peristaltic pump. will be difficult for us to assist you quickly. 13. The other permanent program is available (or virus) that blocks the connection. If this step is successfully completed. describe the problem of the analyzer in detail. 9. Please mention the model of the device. Please. The operator must use the original cable. supplied from the company producer. Contact person/company name where you have bought the device from. Please describe when and how the problem appeared: 1. 14. Please mention your options regarding the status of the individual modules in case of the described above indications. The analyzer worked properly for a certain time (please. When did you buy the analyzer? 5. Check the both LED indicators if some of them lights continuously for more than 2-3 seconds without changing of the light intensity. On the display appears following message: .g. Did you make correction or repairing of the analyzer? 8. 12. Serial number.0 connection. Cable used for connection is different from the mentioned cable in the Operation manual. What kind of information should I send in the case of a potential problem with the analyzer? In order to receive quick reply from the service center you must send the following information: 1. We have problem when we connect the milk analyzer Master to the PC – what is the reason? During the producing process the connection between Milk analyzer Master and PC is mandatory. The analyzer doesn’t work. The cable must be connected to the port marked as “PC” at the rear side of the milk analyzer. 2.g. Please ask your system administrator for assistance. e. If there is no any sound. the problem appeared after you switch the device on for the first time 2. Description of the problem. If the tests are successful and device still doesn’t work the damage is in the LCD module. further information about the condition of the analyzer is the beep that sounds.
