DryTrack® meter cards are installed in aluminum NEMA 4 enclosures on the outside of the kiln walls close to each measuring point to limit the influence of electrical interference between the lumber and the card, as well as to keep down the cost of field wiring.
The enclosures and meter cards are kept cool and dry by a low-pressure air system which maintains a positive pressure inside the meter box. This provides an environment which ensures a long life for the measuring cards and enables us to offer a 3-year warranty, the longest in the industry.
The wiring between the wall fitting and insulated rails is made using bare stainless-steel wire. The connections between the insulated rails and the measuring plates in the lumber stacks are made using a short bare stainless-steel wire with clips at each end. This allows for the wiring between the rails and wall fittings to be easily repaired if damaged; the wire clips can be easily stored when the kiln is being emptied, thus eliminating trip hazards; the clips easily release if struck by falling boards and if not unclipped when the charge is changed.
The DryTrack® In-Kiln Moisture Content Measurement System will provide you with many years of trouble-free service. Our customers are always finding additional benefits and have reported a minimum of 2% to a maximum of 6% improvement in 2 & BTR grades.
