in-Kiln Accessories

in-kiln-monitor-measuring-wood
Lignomat’s probe and cable systems can be used for all types of kilns, from solar to conventional steam kilns. The system has proven to work well in small one-cable installations and large industrial kilns and predryers.
The accessories are made to withstand the corrosive, hot air conditions in a kiln. High-grade teflon cables are used to transmit measurements accurately over long distances independent of cable length.
In-Kiln Accessories can be used with:
mini-Ligno DX/C
mini-Ligno MD/C
 Lignometer K
Ligno-VersaTec
in-kiln-monitor-with-cables measuring-wood-in-kiln-monitor
Options 
One cable with one probe can already help small kiln operations to dry lumber better and more efficient.
X Switchbox and 4-Station Plate are recommended when using more than 3 Probes per kiln.
X Use wireless Transmitters to continuously measure and record wood moisture, wood temperature and EMC on a PC – with Internet access.

PK Probes
 wood-probes-in-kiln-monitoring
PK Probes are teflon-coated for core moisture measurements. The cable is connected through a hole in the probe head for a fail-proof connection. The probes are set correctly and removed easily with the Pulling Tool #PT.
Given length below is actual measuring depth.
PKA Probes: for 4/4 lumber, 1/2″ deep  ( 1.2cm ) 1 pair PKA 9.25
PKB Probes: 3/4″ deep ( 1.9cm ), for 6/4 lumber, 1 pair PKB 9.75
PKC Probes: 1″ deep ( 2.5cm ), for 8/4 lumber 1 pair PKC 10.50
PKD Probes: 1.5″ deep ( 3.8cm ), for 12/4 lumber 1 pair PKD 12.00
PKE Probes:  2.75″ deep  ( 7cm ) 1 pair PKE 19.00
Pulling Tool
The Pulling Tool is used to place PK Probes correctly and to remove easily.
Probe removal: The pin is threaded through the tool and the head of the PK probe. Then the probe is cork-screwed out of the board.
Recommended for handling multiple PK Probes.

EMC Humidity Measuring Station
The EMC Station can be used to measure the humidity in a dry kiln, either as stand alone unit with a handheld moisture meter or as part of Lignomat’s wireless moisture monitor or Lignomat’s kiln control system.
 EMC-humidity-me
The EMC station consists of an angle connector to be mounted to the wall and an EMC holder in which the EMC wafer is installed. The EMC cellulose wafer changes with the humidity in the kiln and gives direct EMC values in percent.
1 EMC measuring station consists of:
1 Angle Connector
1 EMC Holder and 10 EMC wafers
Connecting cable needs to be ordered separately.
1 unit K-EMC 84.00
1 EMC Holder without angle connector 1 K-EH 47.00
1 pack EMC wafers (total of 10 pieces) 1 pack K-10EW 10.00
PK Teflon Cables with Connectors
All cables are made with high-grade teflon cable to assure accurate transmission of measured moisture values. Standard cable length for in-kiln measurements is 6ft (90cm). Longer cables can be made upon request.

Cable comes with connectors for mini-Ligno C’s
and loops for stainless steel screws or Pins EG or EL
1 SS-m-6 22.00
Longer cable can be custom ordered, add per ft 1.20
Teflon Cables without Connectors
Teflon cable should be used for all in-kiln wiring from switchbox to angle connector inside the kiln. Cable is available in 100 ft rolls. However, if less or more cable is needed we cut to length required.

Teflon cable without connectors per ft Tx 1.20
Adapter H
Adapter H is needed to connect the PK-H Cables directly to the Lignometer K and the Ligno-VersaTec. Adapter H comes with a BNC connector and two double posts for banana plugs (2mm mini-Cable and 4mm PK-H Cable)
1 A-V 15.00 kiln-monitor-measuring-wood-H
Angle connectors
Angle connectors are installed along the wall inside the dry kiln. They serve as junction box for one cable coming from the switch box outside and one cable from the PK probes in the stack.
 1  K-AC 29.00  kiln-monitor-measuring-wood-A
4-Station Plate
The 4-Station Plate is used in smaller kilns as junction box for 4 cables from 3 (4) PK Probes and one (no) EMC station. Installation is easier and the station plate is less expensive than using 4 single angle connectors.
1 K-4SP 75.00  kiln-monitor-measuring-wood-PL
Switch Box
The switch box is installed outside the kiln. Cables from the station plate or the angle connectors inside the kiln are wired to the switch box. The switch box is equipped with a BNC connector to directly connect the BNC cable from the Lignometer K and Ligno-VersaTec to obtain moisture readings. If a mini-Ligno DX/C or MD/C is used, the mini-BNC cable is needed to obtain readings.
