FMI X-Sensor

The FMI type X sensor is a sensor over which the wood is transported transversally. The moisture measurement takes place over a length of 400 mm or 600 mm. A maximum of 3 sensors can be linked in order to measure the moisture content over a total length of 1,800 mm.

FMI X Sensor

A photocell detects when the wood passes over the sensor. When the wood leaves the sensor, the FMI calculates the following at breakneck speed:

Minimum moisture content (with 2 or 3 sensors)
Maximum moisture content (with 1, 2 or 3 sensors)
Average moisture content (with 2 or 3 sensors)

The output relay for the purpose of marking or indicating can be set to the:

Average value (with 2 or 3 sensors)
Peak value (with 1, 2 or 3 sensors)

The FMI X sensor is used for the following applications

Moisture measurement for sorting
Moisture measurement for transverse transport in front of a planer or molder

The FMI X sensor can easily be built into a sorting line. Reflection plates, or similar, are unnecessary.
