Industrial Controls & Monitoring Systems for Dry Kilns with Wireless and Wirebound Probes 

The most complete line of kiln control systems and monitoring systems for the lumber, flooring, stave, treated lumber and furniture industries.
Lignomat USA Ltd. is the first company to offer kiln control systems with these unique 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 Control Process Center.
  • Automatic, Real Time, Personnel/Event Specific, Text/Email Alerts.
  • Internet Compatibility Between Client and Server Software Modules. 
These technological advancements are only available from Lignomat. Lignomat’s Kiln control systems offer more accurate measurements 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. Interference due to electrical noise are virtually eliminated. Operating stability is increased. This applies also to any stand-alone monitor for MC and EMC and Temperature
Due to the digital data processing, the wireless in-kiln systems in kiln controls and stand-alone monitors only require one four conductor cable. The cable runs from the kiln directly to the kiln setpoint controller (KCM/KCU) typically installed in the kiln control room or to the PC where data from the monitoring system can be reviewed. The kiln operator can enter drying schedules, execute operational changes if needed, review data and drying history at the user interface on PC, smart phone or touchscreen display. 
Installation and maintenance are very easy with a wireless system as less cable and hardware is required. The new technology offers a maximum in cost efficiency, operational stability and ease of operation.
Wood core temperature stations stations for heat treating applications are also available.
Predryers: The wireless measuring systems offer new possibilities for predryer controls. All sensors for wood moisture, EMC and temperature communicate wireless with several receivers located inside the predryer. Long sensor cables inside predryers 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 within the kiln charge and communicate with one or more receivers depending on coverage needs. The receivers are connected to a the PC for data logging and display. 
Fully Automatic Full Feature Dry-Kiln Controller – Lignomat netKCS
  1. Wireless In-kiln Moisture Probes – Require very minimum in-kiln wiring. Option for high temp kilns: Wirebound in-kiln connections from sensors to data acquisition center outside of kiln.
  2. Automatic, personnel/event specific, selectable text alerts, standard.
  3. Latest AHDRC & HVI (Heat/Vent Interlock) software modules. Up to 16 Wood Moisture Probes (MC) per kiln – Six probes is standard. 

The standard kiln control systems from Lignomat are the base for the design of a system that fits your needs. Call 800-227-2105 for more information and a quote.
