 Pinless Ligno-Scanners    

All Ligno-Scanners are calibrated to give true wood moisture readings in percent and have built-in corrections for different species.

With a pinless meter you can quickly scan a large number of boards, detect higher moisture levels and water pockets. Pinless meters are essential when checking finished products such as cabinet doors, table tops and ready-to-sell furniture, where pins would leave visible marks. Ideal for building inspectors to assess moisture conditions and water damage in buildings, especially since Scanners can also be used for non-wood building materials such as drywall, concrete, tile, etc.

Specifications for Scanners

The measuring depth of a pinless meter is crucial. Moisture readings are too low, when the Scanner is placed on a work piece which is thinner than the measuring depth. Scanners never measure any deeper than the measuring depth.

The entire measuring pad has to be on a flat and smooth surface for accurate readings

*Species Corrections for Ligno-Scanners and Ligno-DuoTec correlate directly to the Specific Gravity. Example: For a specific gravity of 0.57 (0.57g/cm3)set species # 57. Specific Gravity for most wood species can be found on the Internet. We also include a Species Chart with recommended settings. All Ligno-Scanners and the Ligno-DuoTec come with a reference scale for non-wood building materials.

Measuring range: 5-99% dependent upon Species. Resolution of read-out: 0.1% Less accurate above Fiber Saturation Point at 30%.             

Wood temperature correction is not necessary.

1 9-V Battery for 3000 Readings, Battery included

Size: 1/2"H x 2"L x 5"W  (for Scanner LD width is 2 7/8")      Weight: 8 ozs

Comes in a Carry Pouch with Belt Loop.

 

We suggest buying a pin meter first for its greater versatility and accuracy. As a second meter we suggest a pinless meter.
