Package K-10


System allows monitoring remote, hard to reach areas during water damage repairs, after repairs and when the walls are closed up again. Works for short-term and long-term monitoring. Add EL pins to reach up to 7″ deep. Too much moisture, undetected for a prolonged time can cause severe damage. Detection is the first step in prevention. 


The Lignometer K is Lignomat’s most advanced pin meter with the widest moisture range and individual correction settings for domestic and tropical wood species, OSB, panel products, drywall and reference scales for laminates, carpets, concrete and other moisture sensitive materials. Reliable, accurate and sturdy.

Cables/screws/pins make it easy to monitor water remediation jobs or check for leaks and moisture infiltration in buildings. Once cables have been installed, the meter can be connected at any time  and changes in moisture content become immediately obvious, since measurements are taken from the same spot at the same depth. 

Add electrode E14-V (package K4-10S) or E12 to obtain moisture readings with hand probes at any time, any where.

Product Description

Package K-10

The cable/pin system allows monitoring for moisture changes in hard-to-reach, inaccessible areas, during drying-out after water damage and for long-term leak surveillance.

The Ligno-meter K is the most advanced meter among Lignomat’s pin moisture meters. Features are the wide moisture range and more than 170 correction settings for measuring domestic and tropical wood species, OSB and other panel products, bamboo, gypsum and different types of wall boards. Relative scales are included for concrete, cementitious materials, plastics, insulation…

A BNC connector for cables from electrodes E12, E14, E16 and cables to monitor critical areas (Adapter H) is installed at the top of the meter.

Easiest monitoring of moisture problem areas

Leaky roofs, wet crawl spaces, faulty installed windows, broken pipes, a cracked waterline behind a refrigerator can be a cause for moisture problems. Unnoticed moisture accumulations can have severe consequences, floors are ruined, dry rot develops and structural components disintegrate. Monitoring can also be used to track the drying-out process after water damage has occurred.

System works well for short and long-term monitoring in buildings. Using extension cables has the advantage, that areas can be monitored, which are totally inaccessible after the walls are closed up. Measurements are obtained quickly by connecting the open cable end to the meter.

Monitoring: Measurements taken periodically from the same spot at the same depth will produce a series of truly comparable moisture percentages. The values show, if the drying-out process is proceeding as expected or if a new problem is occurring.

The LP-H cable has loops on one end to connect pins and screws and 4mm plugs on the other end to plug into the adapter H at the moisture meter. When using screws, the meter indicates the highest moisture value in the measured area between the screws. That could be at the surface or at the depth the screws have been set, because un-coated screws measure the wettest spot. Teflon-coated pins only measure at the tip, they will indicate a dry inside even if the surface is wet. Assortment of pins and cables.

Cables should be ordered long enough to keep the open cable-end in an easily accessible area, standard length is 3ft.

Measurements are taken by plugging the open cable-end into the adapter H and connecting the adapter H to the meter. If cables are already installed to monitor the drying-out process, they could be left in place for long-term monitoring.

For data logging moisture and humidity measurements automatically. we offer the 

MC Tracker BL2 data logger 
— wireless recording system
for relative humidity only BL2 data logger

An assortment of pins is available:

  • off-the-shelf, stainless steel screws 1/2″
  • EG pins, teflon-coated 3/4″
  • EL pins, teflon-coated 7″, upon request EL pins can be shortened

Hardware to connect screws/pins to LP-H cables is included.

The LP-H cable connects the meter to all pins listed above. The cables in the K-10 package have a standard length of 3 ft. Cables can be ordered in sets of 1, 3, 5. Longer cables are available upon request.


Electrode E14-V with EG pins: Hand probe for moisture measurements any where at any time. The slim shape of the electrode allows for checking around pipes, below window sills, in wall corners, places where round electrodes or pinless measurements cannot reach. With the E14-V you can truly track moisture wherever it hides. Adding the 7″ long EL pins lets you reach through insulation or under baseboards into structural components. Great for EIFS inspections. Upon request we shorten the 7″ long pins to any length required between 7″ and 1/2″. Package K4-10S.
