The Grain Moisture Monitor (GM2) is specifically designed for the real-time in-line moisture monitoring of whole grains. Its close relative the Moisture Monitor (M2) is identical with the exception that it is designed to be configured for products other than whole grains.
The system includes a Dryer Master stainless steel fin type moisture sensor, a high performance ¼ DIN Micro PLC (available either pre-mounted in a Nema4 enclosure, or un-mounted for user configured installation), and an optional calibration button. The panel displays and stores moisture information and is used to enter calibrations. An optional printer is available to provide a printed record and/or data can also be stored to a MicroSD card with the data storage option.
Product moisture is measured by the Dryer Master moisture sensor. The signal is relayed to the GM2/M2 panel where it is converted to a moisture reading and then displayed on the screen. Calibrating the sensor to your manual bench top tester is easy to do.
Outputs are provided for activating a remote alarm or triggering a process event such as a shutdown or product diversion, when off spec product is detected. Additional signal outputs for transmitting the moisture and product temperature to other automation equipment are also available.
For users without a PLC who would like to have access to real time moisture readings from their process the GM2/M2 provides a cost-effective solution. The system can also store data to a removable memory module and, with an optional printer, provide printed records of operation.
