Package D6-P


For inspection, construction and restoration jobs. To check hardwood floors and sub-floors, structural lumber, drywall and hard building materials such as concrete. Package D6-P is a good option when concrete should be measured or when deep measurements are necessary.


The mini-Ligno DX/C is the most advanced mini-Ligno. With a wide measuring range and correction settings for domestic and tropical wood species, bamboo, gypsum, drywall, wall boards and other building materials.

The advantage of the Electrode E16 are the two separate, single pin posts, which make it easier than using a one-piece electrode to insert pins into hard materials (concrete) or to measure hard-to-reach areas up to 7″ deep.

With the E16 you get instant results when measuring moisture levels in concrete.

Product Description

Package D6-P

Lignomat’s D6-P package is great for installation and inspection of hardwood floors. For measuring moisture in the building envelope from concrete slabs to wood floors to walls, ceilings and roofs. The electrode E16 is designed for checking moisture in hard building materials (concrete) or hard to reach areas in the building envelope. Measuring depth can be extended up to 7″ with EL pins (add-on).

The package D6-P consists of:

The moisture meter of your choice, the mini-Ligno DX/C is the most advanced among the mini-Lignos. It comes with pins and a connector built-in for external electrodes or cables for monitoring problem areas in buildings. Features are the wide measuring range and 46 correction settings built-in for measuring domestic and tropical wood species, bamboo, gypsum, drywall and different types of wall boards and panel products. A reference scale is included for non-wood materials such as plaster, insulation, concrete…

For wood: The integral pins at the mini-Ligno measure 7/16” deep. When measuring thicker lumber, you can make a fresh cut and measure the end grain to reach the core. If it is not feasible to cut the wood, you can add the electrode E12 for depth measurements.

For building materials: The pins on the meter work well in soft materials such as drywall for a depth of 7/16″. If corners and tight places cannot be reached with the integral meter pins, the electrode E16 can be used for measurements up to 7″ deep. (Add-on EL pins).

Electrode E16 is used mainly to measure hard building materials, such as concrete slabs, brick walls, tile. The electrode can also be used when the distance or the angle between the 2 measuring pins need to be changed. Standard distance between pins is 1 1/4″.

The electrode E16 consists of two separate posts. Each post is 2″ long with a ball head. The cable is connected through a hole in the post using a 4mm banana plug. The bottom of the posts have threads for the pins. An assortment of pins is available with lengths from 3/16″ to 7″ (Pins EG, EL and EC, EA, EV). Tapping on top of the ball head with a mallet or hammer will drive pins into the material. Pre-drilling holes maybe required for deeper measurements.

We recommend a distance of 4″ (10cm) between the pins for measuring cementitious materials including concrete. Cementitious materials have a very low electrical resistance compared to wood and tend to give high values, therefore changing the distance allows a wider moisture range.

Measurements obtained from concrete or cementitious materials are not true percent values. They only can be used as reference numbers or comparative readings. Comparative measurements become meaningful, when a dry (wet) sample piece of the material is available. Measurements can then be compared to the moisture value for dry (wet).

Using the mini-Ligno S/DC with the Electrode E16 gives immediate results when measuring concrete. The measurements can show areas of high and low moisture. If measurements are taken with the EL pins at different depth levels, the moisture profile of the slab becomes obvious. However, it cannot replace the in-situ probe test or the Calcium-Chloride test which allow to determine, if a wood floor can be installed

Available pins for E16:
EG pins teflon coated, measuring depth 3/4″
EL pins teflon coated, measuring depth 7″
EC 5/8″, EA 7/16″, EV 3/16″, un-coated

EC pins are included in package D6-P

Add-ons for D6-P package:
– Pins #EL 7″ for E16
– Electrode E14-m
Cables to monitor drying-out after water damage or to monitor remote inaccessible areas.
