A block diagram of an automated system of material moisture content control is presented. The system provides automatic measurement of the amplitudes of the incident and reflected waves, automatic frequency tuning in a given range, automatic measurement of the resonant frequency, processing of data on a PC, and presentation of data in the form of numerical and graphic information on the display screen and printer.
