Control Options for the L200 Kiln Drying System

L 200S

L200 standard control system. The traditional L200 has a precise controller which requires just a few minutes of daily monitoring. Controls include a thermostat with remote sensor and compressor timer. This system has been proven in thousands of installations since 1984. The temperature control turns the supplemental heat on and off as needed. It displays both the set point and the actual kiln temperature. The humidity is managed by using a wet bulb sensor and controls the operation of the compressor. This is a simple, reliable, time tested system.

L 200M

L200 M temperature and wet bulb with wood moisture probes. The temperature and humidity are controlled by wet bulb and dry bulb sensors. The temperature control turns the supplemental heat on and off as needed. Wet bulb is the most accurate way to measure humidity and it controls the operation of the compressor. In addition this controller provides 4 digital readouts of wood moisture content. The system can be set to shut down when all four probes read the target moisture content. This system provides a premium level of control for thousands of dollars less than the cost just a few years ago.
