Package V-3

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.

 kiln-moisture-meter-Ligno-Versa

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. Plus pinless and RH meter for other uses around the plant.

–Using 3 Sets of Cables, which can be directly connected to the Ligno-VersaTec 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

  • Wireless3Use wireless transmitters to send moisture measure- ments from inside the kiln to your PC.
  • Ask for a quote for your kiln operation.

Moisture Meter: Ligno-VersaTec
— Microprocessor-based circuitry assures calibration stability and
— accuracy for the life-time of the meter.
— Calibration is internally checked and adjusted before each reading
 in pin and pinless mode.
— Measuring range is low enough to check kiln dried wood,
— hardwood floors, etc. Pinless mode allows lower readings
 in hardwoods.
— Moisture range high enough to check green lumber (99%).
— 150 Individual correction settings for domestic and tropical
— wood species, bamboo and drywall.
— Resolution for entire range 0.1%.
— Reference scale for concrete and other materials (0-99).
— Connector for external electrode and RH cables built-in.

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

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 27.00 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
