NSC100 Advanced Control System

Nyle has taken its 37 years of experience in the industry and created a control system that is transforming how kiln operators interact with their kiln. We set out with two goals in mind; increase productivity and make the control easy to use.

The NSC100 control allows kiln operators to dry their lumber using the drying method of their choice, set an automated schedule and monitor or control the chamber from their cell phone if they wish.

For Any Dry Kiln, New or Retrofit

This control comes standard on Nyle’s larger kilns giving our products the most advanced control on the market and as a plus package on the L300, L500 and L1200.
The NSC100 is also available as a retrofit control box for existing Nyle or any other dry kiln systems from any other vendor.

Color Touch Screen Interface

The NSC100 advanced control system uses a color touch screen control as the main interface for operating the kiln chamber. The HMI touch screen is capable of performing all kiln operations including managing schedules, setting up data logs, reading trends, setting kiln mode types, monitoring status and more. Our touch screens are mounted right to the control panel for each kiln.

Web Based Control

The NSC100 advanced control offers a state of the art web server control. Kiln operators can use the built in web server to monitor all kiln conditions on any device that is connected to the local area network. Connections are made easy with standard Cat5 wiring connections at each control. The web server can also be accessed via the web on cell phones, tablets or home computers.

No Computer Required!

The NSC100 controller doesn’t require a computer for data logging or control! We are doing away with this point of failure and concern. The NSC100 data logs are stored entirely within the PLC. Any device connected to the same local area network can access the data files and send them to a printer. Now, if your computer dies, you can still dry your lumber without having to call in the geek squad!

Single Purpose Control Boxes

We offer a number of standalone control box packages as well, including a Kiln Drying Control, Firewood Processing Control, and a Pallet Processing Control.

Each box is wired with two completely isolated relay board that protect the logic controller while in use.
