Control unit for steaming chambers PD-01
ISPM-15 wood pallet sterilization unit MKS-05


  • Reliable temperature measurement with temperature compensation
  • Wood core and ambient air temperature measurement
  • Display of measured values on LED displays
  • Inputs: 8
  • Cam be connected to PC via EIA 485
Suitable for:
  • Verification of wood and pallet sterilization proces according to ISPM 15 FAO regulations
  • Food, drugs and herbs storage warehouses
  • Climatized rooms
  • Incubators
MKS-05 is microprocessor temperature indicator (measurement and data aquisition box) with 5 inputs which are suitable for Pt1000 or Pt100 RTDs and most common thermocouple sensors. One fixed air temperature probe (sensor) and 4 wood core temperture probes (sensors) can be connected to MKS-05.
This is not a stand alone unit but can be delivered separatelly depending on the aplication and user preference. Complete set delivered for wood and pallet sterilization process according to ISPM 15 phytosanitary standard consists of: measurement box MKS-05, 1 air temperature probe, 4 wood core temperature probes with Pt1000 sensors, connection box S-05 (if required), RS486 adapter used for PC connection, CD with software installation and cables.

There are 2 ways to connect device depending on the distance between chamber and MKS-05. Length of the cables for temperature probes is most crutial. In case short cables can be used (for short distances), temperature probes are connected directly to MKS-05. If that is not the case and distance is not short, or it is unconvenient to use direct connection, then connection box S-05 is placed inside the chamber and temperature probes are connected to MKS-05 via this connection box.

Both connection layouts are shown on pictures bellow:
MKS-05 direct connection of temperature probes
Direct connection of temperature probes to MKS-05
MKS-05 temperature probes connection via S-05
Connection of temperature probes to MKS-05 via connection box S-05

Most common usage of this unit is in chambers for heat treatment ie sterilization of wood and pallets. Together with custom PC application "Wood sterilization", MKS-05 is used for sterilization process verification according to International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures ISPM 15 standard as defined by Food and Agriculture Organisation - FAO. Sterilization process is monitored on PC monitor, and after succesfull completion, it is printed in the form of computer generated form which is used as proof that sterilization process passed succesfully.

When appropriate application on PC computer is used, MKS-05 can be used as suitable device for survailance and data aquisition in large chamber and warehouse systems.
