The revolutionary BoardHound™ system reliably tracks board information from your planer/edger to your trimmer. It does this by applying a series of invisible fluorescent marks on the wood at speeds up to 3000 fpm as it travels through the sensing equipment. BoardHound then reads the marks back off the wood at the trimmer infeed and correlates the original measurement with the board. BoardHound is capable of tracking all manner of data such as detailed stress information and moisture. Since each mark defines a record number, not the actual data, there is no practical limit to the amount of information that can be tracked with each board. The type of data that can be tracked: stress, moisture, thickness/width, optimizer solutions. If you can measure it, BoardHound can track it!
