Sirianni Hardwoods, Inc.

Sirianni Hardwoods, Inc. came to PCSI with the desire to make accessing their 11 conventional kilns (with 900 MBFT drying capacity) an easier task. They have three groups of conventional kilns on their Painted Post, NY site separated by air-drying sheds, parking lots, offices, etc.  They have underground utilities, and for the most part paved surface, so the conventional method of connecting their kiln controllers to a supervisory computer via wired RS-485 was out of the question.

 

PCSI researched the available technology and selected a robust 900Mhz solution: four wireless radio modems to allow each remote kiln control room to communicate with the office supervisory computer.  A wireless ethernet router and bridge was also installed in the office to reduce the labor of routing ethernet cable, and provide outside access through their high-speed Internet connection and pcAnywhere remote access software.
 
The wireless radio modems allow a conventional RS485 Modbus network to extend through all of the myriad of obstructions in a secure and robust manner.  Once the Modbus network is routed back to the supervisory computer, PCSI's Kiln Control software allows easy access to the conventional kiln control setpoints and provides the operator with very comprehensive historical logs: in short, it allows the operator to manage the kilns from the comfort of home on those cold and snowy New York weekends!
