MC Tracker with BL2

Record Relative Humidity and Moisture Content.

The MC Tracker / BL2 is a unique on-site data logger which records simultaneously
–1  relative humidity probe
–3 readings of moisture in wood, drywall, brick or othersolid materials.

The measurements show how relative humidity affects the moisture content of wood and other materials. For example, the graph shows an increase in relative humidity from 35% to 69%. However there was no increase in moisture content during the recorded time.


A great diagnostic tool for material testing. Other applications include wood drying, building surveillance, flooring installations and tracking moisture during storage and shipping.

The system is easily adaptable to your specific needs. Moisture measurements can be obtained by a variety of probes up to 7″ long. Cables can be up to 50 ft long.

MC Tracker can also be set to record EMC, either as a function of the relative humidity and temperature or independently from Lignomats EMC measuring station.

Then the probe is cork-screwed out of the board. Recommended for handling multiple PK Probes. 1 PT 18.00 wood-in-kiln-monitoring-kiln-PT
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 W-10 10.00
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. in-kiln-monitoring-system-cable
Teflon cable without connectors per ft Tx 1.20
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. kiln-monitor-moisture-system-S
