Sensor Products Options & Software
MoistTech includes their collection of modern Windows™ programs to supply straighforward user interfaces for configuration, data logging and monitoring of diagnostics. With this technology, the user is able to execute calibrations, specify gauge and measurement parameters as well as set-up and configure up to 50 different product codes. The MoistTech Software package is easy to use and compatible with any PC platform.
In addition to the MoistTech management software, we offer several read-out options to display and/or adjust the measurement outputs.
MoistTech’s series of online moisture sensors have the option to connect with an array of display options as well as additional accessories, depending on your exact application needs. Our qualified technical staff can assist you with the display and accessories best suited for you and explain how each one operated in detail.

HMI Human Machine Interface
Our industrial touch screen HMI panels offer a user-friendly interface through which customers can easily and conveniently monitor their system and make all common sensor configuration adjustments. The HMI is a 7” full color display with Ethernet communication to the MoistTech Online Sensors. From 1 to 3 Constituents including internal temperature and optional product temperature.
Remote Digital Panel Meter DPM2-UDM
Remote Digital Panel Meter DPM2-UDM uses the 4-20mA output to display a local 3.5” digital display. Sealed for wash-down protection and dust tight. Front-side tactile-touch buttons provide programming input to set up the DPM. LED numerical characters.
OP-14 PLC Interface IP67
OP-14 Operator Panel is a PLC based separately mounted unit, communicates with the MoistTech sensors though RS-232C Cable. Large numerical display and full screen trend display. Online control, calibration and measurement display for all 3000 series sensors. Rated IP-67 dust & water tight.
Product temperature sensor (Non-Contact)
For online installations. An internally mounted pyrometer can be used to monitor the product surface temperature from 0-100C.
Installed in place of standard light tube. For horizontal measurement for moisture and thickness
Base & Stand for On-Line Moisture Sensor
Offline table top mounting
Stainless steel / Electro Nickel Enclosures
Optional enclosures for Food Grade application and Harsh Environments requiring specific IP classification.
Valve Cell for Pipeline Installations
3” Stainless Steel valve cell with Sapphire Window. Assembly with sensor can be mounted in any orientation.
Product loss sensor (proximity detector)
Industrial processes will not always have a continuous flow of product. The optional product loss sensors trigger the online sensor measure on/off based on product visibility. Sensors are mounted on the sensor head and adjustable to maximize the best material flow.
Profibus, Profinet, Ethernet IP, DeviceNet
Communication outputs available above our standard 4-20mA, Serial and Ethernet TPC/IP
KEL-F, Quartz & Sapphire viewing windows
Optional viewing windows available for applications requiring specifically designed glass or Kel-F plastic for Food Applications.
Option for installation in cold climates below freezing. Optional 75watt heater cartridge with Thermo Switch for auto on/off regulation. Temperature range operational at 40F to 60F. Important to keep MoistTech sensors powered on in freezing temperatures.
Pneumatic Sampler – All 3000 Series
For use in enclosed conveyors, chutes or bins where fines are conveyed pneumatically or gravity fed. All programing of the FILL, MEASURE and PURGE is configured by the online sensor head.
Purging Sampler System for Fines / Powders:
Snorkel sampler with solenoid. Available: 110VAC, 220VAC, 24V
Purging Sampler System for Bulk Materials:
Snorkel sampler with solenoid. Available: 110VAC, 220VAC, 24V
With flange for enclosed conveyors
Flange Window with Brackets – All 3000 Series
For use in enclosed conveyors, chutes or bins. Flange window allows the sensor to view product from the outside looking at the window. Material must be against and covering the glass.
Air Purge Accessories
For use in harsh/dusty/dirty applications. Tube consists of a bronze phosphor insert to evenly distribute 1 psi of air flow. Air connection is 1/4 “ NPT push fitting.
Stainless Steel Flange Window: Sapphire
Flush Mount Sapphire Window Stainless Steel with Brackets. 304 Stainless Steel. For installations in a bin, chute, vessel or enclosed conveyor where the location must keep sealed or confined. Product material being measured must always cover the window for reliable measurement. Wall thru hold diameter is 3” and over all flange is 6”. Includes Mounting bracketry to be mounted in any orientation. Mounts sensor at a 15 Deg to flange window. Mounting Bracket is Black Anodized Aluminum.
Black Aluminum Anodized Flange Window: Quartz
Flush Mount Sapphire Window Aluminum Hard Anodized with Brackets. For installations in a bin, chute, vessel or enclosed conveyor where the location must keep sealed or confined. Product material being measured must always cover the window for reliable measurement. Wall thru hold diameter is 3” and over all flange is 5”. Includes Mounting bracketry to be mounted in any orientation. Mounts sensor at a 15 Deg to flange window.
Air Purge Light Tube:
With phosphor-bronze insert
Compact Air Purge Light Tube
Designed for limited space, this compact light tube protects the online sensor optical window from dust/dirt/damage while evenly distributing a positive pressure of factory supplied air.
Side Stream Air Purge
Utilizes compressed air for industrial blow off at the optical sensing window. Replaces the Air Purge Light Tube to supply a curtain-like airflow using a ¼” NPT push fitting. The Side Stream Air Purge is an efficient way to help prevent dust and steam from collecting on the sensors optical window. For use with the MoistTech 3000 Series Sensors.
Water Cooling Panel OR Air Cooling Panel with Vortex Tube:
This option replaces one of the sensors side panels with a cooling feature. Used for installations above normal operating temperature the optional cooling panel will decrease the sensor internal temperature depending on the application and installation location.
Calibration Check Standards:
The Reference Standards are useful for verifying if your gauge’s calibration has not drifted. Each kit includes a high and low reference standard that locks on to the Air-Purge Light Tube. Includes a secure carrying case.
