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.

The mini Ligno S/D moisture meter indicates wood and drywall moisture in true percentages. Other non-wood building materials are measured with a reference scale built-in. If moisture needs to be measured deeper than 1/2″, choose the mini-Ligno S/DC with attachments. Review all S/DC packages.

Measuring moisture is the first and the last step when dealing with moisture problems in buildings. Having a moisture meter on hand is important even after repairs are done. Periodic check-ups with the mini-Ligno S/D will make sure problems have been fixed.

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.
