Package K2-33M

Applications

Lumber drying – for medium sizes and all types of dry kilns – from solar to conventional steam kilns. Installing cable inside the kiln for checking drying process.

 in-kiln-monitor-measuring-w

Advantages

A great meter for any drying operation. Built-in corrections for domestic and tropical wood species. A wide measuring range and superior calibration accuracy. Built-in temperature correction for hot and cold lumber.

–Using a station plate inside the kiln and a switchbox on the outside for easy access to obtain measurements. You can use 4 cables or 3 cables and an EMC station. Placing the cable in different locations inside the kiln allows measuring the center of stacked lumber, to the left, to the right, up or down. This shows the performance of the kiln. Are there areas of slow drying?

Options

  • Choose the Ligno-VersaTec for more flexibility:
    a meter with pin-pinless-RH mode and
    built-in wood temperature corrections.
  • Wireless3Use wireless transmitters to send moisture measure- ments from inside the kiln to your PC.
  • Ask for a quote for a kiln monitor.

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 P 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

Then the probe is cork-screwed out of the board. Recommended for handling multiple PK Probes. 1 PT 25.00 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 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
