Package M-11

Applications

Lumber drying – for all sizes and types of dry kilns – from solar to conventional steam kilns. Whenever moisture should be measured, but the location cannot be reached with the standard 3 ft electrode cable.

Advantages

The mini-Ligno MD/C is our best priced pocket-size meter. The measuring range is 6-25%. It covers the critical range below fiber saturation point, when lumber shrinks. If not careful temperature too high and humidity too low can damage the lumber.

–Using Cables allows measuring the center of stacked lumber and gives representative results for the kiln charge.
–A great inexpensive set-up to monitor areas after water
damage repair to see, if the problem is really fixed.

Options

  • Wireless3Use wireless transmitters to send moisture measure- ments from inside the kiln to your PC.

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-in-kiln-moisture-monitor
Cable from PK Probes to mini-Ligno C-model (6ft) 1 PK-m-6 26.00
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 Tx 1.20
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. 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 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
