Mini-Ligno moisture meters are made easy to use and sturdy. They give accurate and reliable measurements due to Lignomat’s advanced measuring technology. The unique LED display is virtually unbreakable and bright enough to read even in poorly lit areas.
Using moisture meters is a first step in determining the severity of moisture problems in the building envelope. Moisture can cause unsightly defects, deterioration, mold and unhealthy conditions.
Mini-Ligno S/DC is designed for wood, drywall and building materials. Attachments are available to track moisture beyond the surface up to 7″ deep. Measuring range is high enough for wet lumber and low enough for wood floors and sub floors.
A perfect meter for the construction and restoration professional. Even home owners can make good use of a moisture meter when checking for new leaks. The mini-Ligno S/DC includes calibrations for 2 wood groups, 1 drywall, and 1 reference scale for other non-wood building materials. Periodic check-ups can show, if water damage problems have been fixed. To reach harder-to-measure areas, around pipes, under wall boards, roofs, in corners or EIFS applications, Lignomat offers 3 different attachments. Click for S/DC package summary.

The mini-Ligno SD/C is one of our most popular meters with the following features:
– a unique shape that fits comfortably in your hand when
– a measuring range low enough to check hardwood floors (6%*)
– a measuring range high enough to evaluate wet lumber (45*)
– a bright, digital display readable even in dark crawl spaces
– resolution of 0.1% below the critical range of 10%
– 2 wood group settings for softwood, hardwood and wood
– based panels
– a reference scale 0-99 for non-wood building materials such
– as drywall, plaster and other “soft” building materials. For
– instance, to pinpoint problems around windows or showers,
– in leaky ceilings, after water lines broke or buildings were flooded.
– connection for external cables and electrode — to evaluate
– concrete or reach hidden areas for moisture testing, even
– behind 7″ of insulation.
The functionally designed mini-Ligno SD/C fits in your hand when measuring and is small enough to carry in a shirt-pocket. The green cap covers the pins during transportation and serves as a handle when pushing the pins into the wood. This unique design allows pushing behind the entire meter to insert the tapered pins easily. Longer pins are stored inside the meter for measuring thicker material. The short pins are ideal for surface or end cut readings and for veneer.
For measurements, push the pins into wood. The unique on-off switch between the pins, turns meter on automatically and bright LED lights instantly indicate moisture percentage.
An easy-to-use, reliable instrument.
