Pin Moisture Meters

All Moisture Meters with Pins are calibrated to measure wood moisture in percent.

The choice between pin or pinless moisture meters: For boards up to 1.5″ thick pinless moisture meters are convenient. In a short time a lot of measurements can be taken without making pin holes. But a pin meter can also be used for boards. Plus, there are more applications were only a pin meter can do the task, such as measuring thicker wood, round or otherwise shaped wood. Pin moisture meters will measure any shape as long as both pins can be inserted into the same product (without a gap between the pins). Another advantage of pin moisture meters is the capability to add external electrodes for depth measurements and cables to monitor lumber drying (in-kiln monitor).

The Ligno-VersaTec and Lignometer K are considered more advanced moisture meters with a wider moisture range and more corrections for different wood species and other materials . And, the Ligno-VersaTec is also a pinless and RH meter.
