Lumber moisture transmitter
  • Long-lasting stainless steel screw electrodes
  • Timber temperature compensation
  • Two 0-10 V and 4-20 mA outputs
  • RS485 Modbus RTU digital interface
Lumber moisture transmitter E2353 is a member of new PluraSens® family of multifunctional measurement instruments. The transmitter is intended for the measurement of timber moisture during kiln drying.
Moisture content (MC) detection is based on the measurements of electrical conductivity. The device uses robust stainless steel screw electrodes and FEP insulated connection cable to ensure the stable operating under the harsh conditions in drying kilns. Options with different length of electrodes and/or cable are available.
 The device has two user configurable analog outputs and RS485 digital interface with industry standard Modbus RTU protocol to connect the transmitter to automation systems.
