The BW-B package features a pinless dual-depth meter for a wide variety of materials and a fast-responding, precision thermo-hygrometer. The hygrometer indicates relative humidity, ambient temperature, dew point temperature and grains per pound.
The package BW-B consists of:
The Ligno-DuoTec BW meter with RH Thermo-Hygro probe measures moisture in wood and many other materials and the relative humidity of air. These two measurements are set into a relationship with each other in the EMC table, which shows values for stable conditions of wood moisture and relative humidity. The table can be used for materials other than wood, when the wood moisture equivalent is known.
The Ligno-DuoTec BW is a dual-depth, pinless meter and a Thermo-Hygrometer. It has a wide measuring range with 90 correction settings for measuring domestic and tropical wood species, bamboo, subfloors and engineered flooring products, gypsum and different types of wall boards. Relative scales are included for concrete (ASTM F2659), cementitious materials and different types of panel products.
A connector for RH cables or RH adapter are installed in the top of the meter.
The 3.5mm stereo connector gives a fail-proof easy connection.
Two measuring plates for pinless dual-depth mode are mounted on the back of the meter.
Lignomat’s unique pinless measuring technology assures calibration accuracy, reliability and dual-depth measuring capability, measuring depth 1/4″ and 3/4″. The meter indicates wood moisture in percent, corrected for 150 different settings. Specific gravity can also be entered to correct for different wood species, settings between 30-100 (0.3 – 1.0). Comparative readings can be obtained for all other moisture sensitive materials. Concrete can be measured in scan mode with setting #25 following ASTM 2659.
A pinless advantage: Pinless meters from Lignomat measure lower moisture contents than pin meters. A feature specifically valued by the flooring industry in areas with low relative humidity and high desert climate zones.
To activate the RH mode, plug the RH Thermo-Hygro probe into the top of the meter.
RH Measurements – Thermo-Hygrometer
The Ligno-DuoTec BW has a 35mm stereo jack mounted in the top of the meter to connect the RH BluePeg probe to the Ligno-DuoTec BW. First plug the Adapter H into the connector at the top, then the RH BluePeg probe fits into the Adapter RH.
As soon as the connection is established, the Ligno-DuoTec BW automatically switches into RH mode. When the READ button is depressed, the meter immediately indicates the relative humidity. The up or down keys allow recalling the values for ambient temperature, dew Point temperature and grains per pound (RH, Temp, DewPT, GPP). The display indicates the measured values and the RH Probe number. The RH probe number is an individual 3-digit number to allow keeping track of probes measurements and performance.
RH Adapters and Cables
The Adapter comes with 3.5mm stereo plugs (male) on both ends to connect Lignomat’s RH BluePeg Probe directly to the Ligno-DuoTec BW. A RH cable 6 ft for remote measurements is included with the package BW-B. The cable is used when the probe at the meter cannot reach the area or when the display cannot be seen, while measuring a tight spot. Upon request we make longer RH cables.
The distance from the top of the meter to the end of the probe is 2.25″ including the RH adapter. If that is too short to reach into heat ducts, walls and other small crevices, the shaft of the probe can be extended with the RH depth adapter.
