Ligno-VersaTec Moisture Meter

Ligno-VersaTec combines accurate and dependable buffermeasuring technologies of Lignomat’s pin, pinless and RH meters. Everybody needing a versatile, accurate meter will appreciate the multiple functions and the reliability of the Ligno-VersaTec.


With the Ligno-VersaTec you can choose the right measuring mode and the right accessories for the job on hand. It could be tracking moisture problems with a pin electrode or measuring humidity in a crawl space.

Floor installers can check a cupped floor using the dual-depth pinless mode. Pinless Search and Compare Mode is used when tracking moisture problems in walls, ceilings and floors. Lumber Processing Mills use the meter to make sure QC requirements are followed.

Pin and pinless side by side:  Large areas can be scanned fast and easy. Selectable measuring depth 1/4″ or 3/4″ allows for comparing moisture close to the surface and deeper down. Once a problem is detected, pin electrodes can be used for further investigations.

RH mode: Add RH BluePeg humidity probe to the Ligno-VersaTec and you have a precision thermo-hygrometer for RH, T, GPP, DPT. Add RH concrete accessories to perform in-situ moisture tests in concrete. RH BluePeg system complies with latest ASTM F-2170 standard.

* measuring range depends on wood species settings.    * moisture readings above fiber saturation point 25-30% are less accurate.           * pinless meters can read lower moisture values in hardwood.       Using RH probes in concrete is the ASTM approved method to test concrete before installing any type of floor covering. Lignomat’s RH BluePeg fits inside the sleeve, and can be left until the test is finished, then removed and reused. RH Range: 0-99%, Temp: 0 to 200 degrees F or -15 to 95 degrees C. The Package V-2M consists of the Ligno-VersaTec, Electrode E12, BNC Cable and the Case M. The Ligno-VersaTec was designed for versatility, reliability and accuracy as well as sturdiness and ease of operation. The instruments have proven to perform well in rough mill environments with day-to-day usage. One meter for all your moisture meter needs:

– Fast scanning of wood and all flat surfaces of non-wood
–   materials. Detection of different moisture levels in wood,
–   drywall, concrete, etc.
– Detailed depth measurements up to 7″ deep, where ever the probe
–   can reach. Works in wood for core readings. Works in all
–   non-wood materials to indicate where excess moisture is hiding.
– RH BluePeg can be used as a measuring device for ambient
–   relative humidity and temperature or placed in a measuring
–   sleeve, which can be inserted into a predrilled hole in the testing
–   area.
– Operation is that easy! Without studying pages and pages of
   operation manuals: Depress SET Button to check settings. Use
 –  up or down buttons to correct settings.
– Depress % Button for moisture readings. Instrument turns itself
–   off automatically. At any time you can change from pin mode to
–   scan mode by depressing up or down button.
– Professional Packages and In-Kiln Monitors are available for the
–   Ligno-VersaTec please contact Customer Service for detailed
