Industrial Controls & Monitoring Systems for Dry Kilns with Wireless Probes

The most complete line of kiln control and monitoring systems for the lumber, flooring and furniture industry.

Lignomat USA Ltd. is the first company to offer kiln control systems with the following features:

  • Wireless Communication of MC and EMC measurement inside a kiln
  • Completely digital data transfer of Wood Moisture Content, Temperature and EMC from Measuring Points inside the kiln to the Computer System
  • Internet Compatibility between Client and Server Software Modules

These technological advancements are only available from Lignomat. Lignomat’s Kiln control systems offer more accurate readings of MC and EMC especially in the low range. The increased accuracy is enhanced by the completely digital data transfer between data acquisition modules, process control modules and operator interface. Interferrence due to electrical noise are virtually eliminated. Operating stability is increased.

Wireless Systems requires only one four-conductor cable to run from the kiln directly to the kiln setpoint controller (KCM/KCU) typically installed in the kiln control room and further to the user interface on Host PC. Installation and maintenance are very easy. The new technology offers a maximum in cost efficiency, operational stability and ease of operation. Measuring the temperature in the core of the wood for heat treating applications has also become available.

Wireless measuring systems offer new possibilities for predrier controls. All sensors for wood moisture, EMC and temperature are wireless and communicate with several receivers located inside the predrier. Long sensor cables inside the predrier are eliminated, making installation, operation and maintenance a lot easier. The system offers complete freedom in placement of sensors without having to install or move any cables – a great advantage.

The same advantages apply to Lignomat’s wireless monitor using wireless probes. Long cable runs are eliminated. Transmitters are placed in bundles and communicate with several receivers. They, in turn, communicate with the Host PC, for data logging and display.
