NWFA Convention

Thank you all who visited our booth at the NWFA show. We had another great show this year. Grete and Uli were very busy and really enjoyed talking to new and existing customers. 

New Website

If you haven’t already seen it we have finally launched our new website. This may have taken longer than expected however it is here and we have already gotten some great feedback. We would like to get some customer testemoials posted on our website. . Please email me at sales@lignomat.com with a testimonial and I will post it on our website with a link to your site. Thank you

Wireless Moisture Monitors and Data Loggers

On-site or with remote Access

With over 40 years of experience we are one of the industry leaders in measuring moisture accurately and reliably. This knowledge was combined with the latest wireless technologies to develop the data logger BL2 series and the wireless monitoring systems.

Our monitoring systems can measure:

wood moisture, bamboo, gypsum, sheetrock, solid materials

relative humidity and temperature, DPT, GPP, EMC

EMC

concrete moisture using in-situ RH probes ASTM F 2170

Surface and interior temperature


Lignomat’s wireless systems can be used as stand alone data loggers or implemented in any control process where moisture relative humidity and temperature needs to be measured. We have been manufacturing wireless transmitters for control systems in lumber dry kilns for over 15 years.

Memo Chip BL2

Humidity data loggers provide more information than single readings from a thermo-hygrometer. Install a BL2 to keep track continuously.

–Relative humidity and ambient temperature

–DPT (dew point temperature)

–GPP (grains per pound)

–EMC (equilibrium moisture content for wood)

–Add MC Tracker to simultaneously record 1 RH probe and 3 wood
moisture measuring probes.


When humidity matters: Each BL2 comes with the high-precision RH BluePeg Probe with long-term stability. The detachable RH Probe allows for inwall, in-depth monitoring. LED lights and audible alarms can be set to indicate out-of-range values. Selectable time-interval 30 sec to 24 hrs.

The BL2 records 16000 data sets. Reports show:

Relative Humidity, Temperature, Grains per Pound, Dew Point and EMC .


Specifically for Contractors and Restoration Specialists:

For job-site surveillance and long term monitoring. Alarms can be set to alert when unwanted conditions occur. Extension cables (standard stereo cable and 3.5mm connector) allow mounting the RH probe where it can best measure and the BL2 where it can be reached easily.

Specifically for Wood: For customers concerned about wood moisture we added EMC values plus an EMC alarm. The alarm will sound when the humidity gets lower or higher than the preset alarm EMC value.

The Wireless Moisture-Log System

Allows for uninterrupted data acquisition of

 Wood moisture, Wood Temperature, EMC
 Moisture of Drywall, Insulation and other Building Materials
 Relative Humidity / Air Temperature
 Concrete Moisture using in-situ RH Probes

Reports can be viewed on-site or anywhere in the world via Internet.

Advantages of Lignomat’s Wireless System


• Accuracy and Reliability

Lignomat is one of the industry leaders in measuring moisture accurately and reliably. This knowledge was combined with the latest wireless technology to develop Lignomat’s transmitters and receivers.

• Proven technology

Lignomat’s customers have used wireless transmitters to measure and control wood moisture, humidity and temperature inside lumber dry kilns and predryers for the last 16years.

• Single and Multiple Function Transmitters

Transmitters of various combinations are available to provide solutions for the many applications, where for moisture, humidity and/or temperature need to be measured.

• Long Range Data Transmission

Transmitters can be placed anywhere within the test area. Distance between transmitters and receivers can be up to 1000 ft line of sight. Two or more receivers can be connected to reach beyond 1000ft.

• Flexible and Adaptable

Applications range from lumber drying, to restoration, to material testing in labs. Lignomat offers a variety of sensors and probes to fit different applications. All sensors and probes are detachable and interchangeable – and can be connected by cables if necessary.

• Reviewing and Reporting

Completely automatically and continuously, with a real time stamp – no time taking notes and no interruption of reporting when you are not on-site. Reports are available on-site or at a secure Web-server.

Lignomat – Woodcraft Magazine April/May 2015

“How to Air-Dry Lumber” by Dave Boyt features the mini-Ligno moisture meter. Dave uses our meter to demonstrate monitoring his wood stacks when air-drying his lumber. Dave writes, ” For many projects, such as rustic furniture, air-dried stock ( around 12% MC) is good enough. If the design allows for shrinkage without damaging the wood or causing joints to loosen, you can use air-dried lumber. But for fine furniture, musical instruments, and other less tolerant projects, consider kiln drying the wood or drying it in a heated shop down to around 7% to 8%. For accurate monitoring, invest in a good moisture meter when air-drying wood. It lets you keep track of the MC of the wood you dry as well as the wood you buy. ”

Lignomat has a great selection of accurate, reliable and affordable moisture meters and solutions for monitoring wood stacks.

The M-11 package is one of our least expensive meters that comes with a cable and probe for monitoring wood stacks while drying. From there you can increase the amount of cables that you attach and the meter you purchase. Lignomat is also well known for kiln controls, and wireless monitoring systems.

Lignomat in-situ RH Testing Video

Lignomat’s RH BluePeg probes are designed to comply with the latest ASTM F-2170 standard. Some of the unique features that Lignomat’s in-situ RH testing method has are the following:
* Better sealing, easier to place sleeves.
* Better sealing, flatter caps.
* Fast easy connection with a 35 mm plug
* Accurate read-out, resolution for RH 0.1%

Watch the following video on how to use Lignomat’s RH BluePeg system for in-situ RH testing.
