FMI Sensors for Transversal Transport

The FMI in-line sensors of Brookhuis Micro-Electronics for transversal feeding makes it possible to measure wood moisture content without contact with the wood.

The FMI-IV X-type sensors measures the moisture content at a speed to 300 pieces a minute and measures 500 times a second.

The FMI X-type includes a control unit and one or more sensors.
