• Pin Moisture Meters

Lignomat offers three types of pin meters: mini-Lignos with built-in pins and optional electrode connection, the Lignometer K and the Ligno-VersaTec. Mini-Lignos and Lignometer K are pin moisture  meters. Ligno-VersaTec is a multi-function moisture meter and can also be used  as a pinless and RH moisture meter.


Lignometer K and Ligno-VersaTec feature the widest measuring range and most calibration settings for wood and other materials available from Lignomat. For versatile usage select one of the electrodes.


When selecting a mini-Ligno consider moisture range, measuring depth and materials to be measured.

For moisture range see graph below: mini-Ligno DX and DX/C have the widest measuring range.

For measuring depth: mini-Lignos come with 2 sets of pins: measuring depth of  3/16″ and 7/16″. For thicker wood a fresh cut can be made to measure the end grain. If that is not feasible, choose mini-Ligno MD/C, S/DC or DX/C and the Electrode E12.
For deeper penetration in building materials such as drywall choose mini-Ligno S/DC or DX/C and the Inspector Electrode E14.

For materials to be measured see graph below. All meters measure wood. Other choices are bamboo, drywall, concrete. If measuring hard building materials such as concrete we recommend mini-Ligno S/DC or DX/C and the Specialty Concrete Electrode E16.

• Pinless Moisture Meters

Pinless meters can measure a lot of boards within a short time and without leaving pin holes. However, pinless meters require a flat measuring surface. If the surface is round or oddly shaped, a pin meter is your only option.

Lignomat offers three types of pinless meters:
• Ligno-Scanner S and D, single depth either 3/4″ or 1/4″ deep
• Ligno-Scanner SD and SDM, dual-depth set for 1/4″ and 3/4″
• Ligno-DuoTec BW and Ligno-VersaTec, dual-depth and RH option.

Lignomat’s unique measuring technology assures calibration accuracy, reliability and repeatability.


Measuring depth is crucial. Standard measuring depth for most pinless meters is 3/4″ deep. That works well for all boards between 3/4″ and 1.5″ thick. It does not work well, when thinner materials are measured, or if moisture close to the surface has to be measured. For those applications Lignomat offers dual-depth meters. Dual-depth technolgy is only available from Lignomat.

Dual-depth applications include:
–measuring thinner and thicker boards with one meter.
–comparing surface and core of unevenly dried wood.
–getting true measurements from top layer of engineered panels.
–measure only hardwood floor planks without including subfloors.
–checking surface moisture after water damage, cleaning or applying
–waterborne finishes.

For materials to be measured check graph below. Specialty calibrations for bamboo, drywall and reference scales have been added to the Ligno-Scanner SDM, Ligno-DuoTec BW and Ligno-VersaTec. Check graph below.

• RH-Concrete Moisture Meters

The RH test offers the most reliable results for measuring concrete moisture to determine, if a floor covering can be installed or adhesive or epoxy applied. Other methods measure too close to the surface and can miss high moisture levels in the middle of the slab.

Lignomat’s RH BluePeg Probe complies to the latest ASTM standard. The stand-alone RH BluePeg probe with universal 35mm stereo connector allows easy integration with all measuring technologies from Lignomat:

• Handheld RH Meters
• On-site Data loggers
• Wireless transmitters with Internet access


Lignomat offers 3 handheld RH meters for concrete testing:

Ligno-Tec RH:
Ligno-DuoTec BW:
Ligno-VersaTec:
RH meter only
RH meter and pinless meter
RH meter and pinless and pin meter

 

You have a choice.

You can select the handheld meter, which best suits your needs. It could be the LignoTec RH meter, because you only want to measure concrete-RH and you do not need to measure moisture in wood and other materials. It could be the Ligno-VersaTec , which can be used as pinless meter and pin meter. The Inspectors choice. Flooring people often choose the Ligno-DuoTec BW a pinless meter with RH capabilities.


Basic concrete test kits are listed below for all three RH meters.  The packages include a meter, sleeves, cable and 1 RH BluePeg Probe:

Concrete Package with Ligno-Tec RH meter
Flooring Package with Ligno-DuoTec BW
Inspector Package with Ligno-VersaTec and electrode E12.

More RH probes, more sleeves and other accessories can be added to the packages at the time of purchase for the 5% package discount.

• Thermo-Hygrometers

Moisture sensitive materials are affected by too much or too little moisture. Wood will shrink and expand.  In high humidity, mold can start to grow on wood and on most materials in the building envelope. Eventually mold can destroy the material. Humans are directly affected when mold is present.

The first step to avoid any problems is measuring the present conditions with a Thermo-Hygrometer. For continuous measurements we offer the on-site data logger BL2. and wireless transmitters. Measurements and graphs can be reviewed on a PC on-site or remote using the Internet:

•  Thermo-Hygrometers
• On-site Data loggers
• Wireless transmitters with Internet access


When selecting a Thermo-Hygrometer check humidity range, accuracy ratings and response time.

We offer 5 Hygrometers:

-Thermo-Hygrometer TH is a desk top, wall mount Hygrometer with a range from 20-95%. The response time is a few minutes. Great for home and shops in moderate climate zones.

-Thermo-Hygrometer PN is ideal to take along for job-site testing for it’s shorter response time and wider measuring range than the TH.

LignoTec RH Thermo-Hygrometer with the RH BluePeg Probe from Lignomat is most accurate and fast with +/-2% and an 8 sec response time.

Ligno-DuoTec BW meter is a pinless, dual depth meter for wood and concrete. The BW serve as a Thermo-Hygrometer by adding the RH BluePeg Probe. A favorite for floor installers and Inspectors.

Ligno-VersaTec meter can be used as a Thermo-Hygrometer, a pin and a pinless meter. Often used by inspectors and restoration specialists.

•Combo Moisture Meters

Lignomat offers two multi-function meters. Combo meters are used in the restoration, wood flooring, inspection and construction industry, where measuring moisture and humidity are important tasks.

No matter which function of the combo meters you use Ligno-VersaTec and Ligno-DuoTec BW give superior results.


1. Pinless: Both meters VersaTec and BW are pinless, dual-depth meters for wood, bamboo, concrete, drywall and other building materials. Dual-depth meters from Lignomat are recognized and widely used in the flooring and inspection industry.


2. Thermo-Hygrometer: Both meters can be used as Thermo-Hygrometers to measure ambient conditions RH, T, DPT, GPP. Add RH BluePeg Probe and Adapter RH.


3. Testing moisture in concrete: Add RH cables, sleeves and the removable RH probes for testing concrete. The Lignomat system complies to the ASTM F2170 standard for in-situ moisture testing in concrete. (BW and VersaTec)

A specific calibration is programmed for measuring concrete using the pinless mode. These quantitative measurements allow finding wet spots easily.



4.  Pin Meter: only available in Ligno-VersaTec.

Add Depth Electrode E12 for measurements up to 2″ deep with teflon-insulated pins in wood.

Add Inspector Electrode for measuring building materials and for evaluating  structural components with 7″ long pins.
