Pins for the mini-Lignos are made from hardened steel. The tip has the shape of a sharp triangle for sturdiness. The blunt end makes the contact to the circuit board inside the case.
Each meter comes with 2 sets of pins, 1 set for 3/16″ and 1 set for 7/16″ measuring depth.
MA pins for 3/16″ (10mm) measuring depth
MB pins for 7/16″ (15mm) measuring depth
The integral pins at the mini-Lignos measure 7/16″ deep. The meter indicates the highest moisture content along the pins, which could be surface moisture or moisture more towards the core. If the places you want to measure are hard to reach with the integral pins of the meter, you can add attachments to the following mini-Ligno C models:
For deeper measurements in wood you can make a fresh cut and measure the endgrain. If cutting the wood is not feasible, use the Electrode E12 slide hammer probe.
If you are using the meter for building, maintenance and restoration, you may want to consider adding the Electrode E14-m to measure, where the integral pins on the mini-Lignos cannot reach. For example corners, around window sills, under base boards, etc.
