All Ligno-Scanners give true wood moisture readings in percent using built-in corrections for different species. Corrections can also be programmed by entering the specific gravity between 0.3 and 1.0. Resolution is 0.1% for entire measuring range. HOLD function is available in all pinless meters from Lignomat.
 
Why choose a Scanner from Lignomat: Lignomat’s unique measuring technology assures calibration accuracy, reliability and repeatability backed by a 2-year warranty on all meters.
 
Ligno-Scanner SD dual depth moisture meter is calibrated for wood. The meter has 2 independent sets of calibrations, one for 1/4″ deep and one for 3/4″ deep. Standard pinless moisture meters have a fixed 3/4″ measuring depth.
 
Unique dual depth Ligno-Scanner SD works well for:
– Boards over 3/4″ and less than 3/4″ thick.
– Measuring layered engineered panels.
– Comparing surface / core moisture to see if boards are dried evenly.
– Checking surface moisture after water damage or after applying
-  waterborne finishes.
 
Pinless meters are essential when checking finished products such as floors, cabinet doors, table tops and ready-to-sell furniture, where pins would leave visible marks.
1979
We started selling moisture meters and kiln control equipment in the US in 1979.  At first all equipment was manufactured by Lignomat GmbH in Germany.  It became very soon obvious, that the US market required different equipment than was manufactured by the German company.  Lignomat USA began developing moisture meters and kiln controllers made specifically for the US market.  Today, we offer pin and pinless moisture meters, moisture meters for concrete, lumber dry kiln controls and a variety of wireless monitoring devices for moisture and humidity conditions.

The first pocket-size, low-cost moisture meter, the mini-Ligno was developed by German engineers in 1979. The mini-Ligno is still an all-time favorite with over 200 000 units sold. The mini-Lignos still use the same housing with the green cap. The electronic circuitry inside has been up-dated several times. The last up-date was completed just recently to increase accuracy when measuring the many different wood species and materials being used today. More calibration settings were added for the mini-Ligno DX/C to include Bamboo and some of the new engineered panels as well as a wider variety of domestic and tropical hardwoods. To increase versatility, sheetrock calibrations are included.
 
In The Following Years
We attended many Woodworking Shows to introduce the new mini-Ligno moisture meters. Often, we were asked:Why do I need a moisture meter? The sign we used then, is still true today.
 
Avoid shrinking, warping, delamination, loose joints and foggy finishes. Protect your work. Buy a moisture meter.
Do not waste time and money on wet wood.
 
Our First Moisture Problems Info Sheet
To educate woodworkers about moisture problems, we published our first informational brochure: “Wood Moisture Problems, Helpful Hints and Moisture Meters”.  The leaflet was distributed at all Woodworking Shows.

The mini-Ligno Series
Since the introduction of the original mini-Ligno in 1979, we added 7 more mini-Ligno models.  All meters are built with the same high quality components, but offer the user different features.  Prices range from about $100 to $199.
 
Pinless Moisture Meters – the Ligno-Scanners
Ligno-Scanners, Ligno-DuoTec and Ligno-Versatec are a complete line of pinless moisture meters.  Outstanding features are
 
Dual-depth 1/4″ and 3/4″
Unique to the Ligno-Scanners SD, SDM, BW
Multiple built-in corrections for different wood species, bamboo, concrete
Due to a unique measuring technology, we can offer dual-depth pinless meters. The dual-depth scanners can measure thin and thicker boards, top layer and overall moisture content, applications where water-based finishes are measured, etc.
 
Combination Pin and Pinless Meters
After both technologies had been fully developed, we added a combination meter for pin and pinless technology to our line of products, the Ligno-VersaTec.
 
Relative Humidity and Temperature Measurement
Of the shelf instrument come in handy, but are often not very accurate.  For increased accuracy we developed the RH BluePeg System. But that is not all.  Since we have many hardwood floor installers as our customers, we developed an RH sensor which can be used for measuring the moisture evaporation in a concrete slab.
 
Concrete Moisture with In-Situ RH Probes
Many tests have confirmed that this is a more reliable test than the Calcium Chloride test to avoid moisture problems in wood floor installed over concrete slabs.
 
Monitoring Devices
Utilizing the accurate measuring technology we developed over the last decade, we have developed new monitoring devices.  Wireless and wirebound, on-site or over the Internet.  Check out our new products at the Lignomat Moisture Logging website.  If you have a question about your specific application, give us a call and talk to one of our engineers.
