Package M-10


The system allows for measuring moisture with the meter and to connect extension cables for monitoring remote, hard to reach areas. It works for short and long-term monitoring of restoration jobs and leak surveillance.

Too much moisture, undetected for a prolonged time can cause severe damage inside a building. Detection is the first step in prevention.


The mini-Ligno MD/C is our best priced pocket-size meter. The measuring range of 6-25% is wide enough to measure dry and wet materials.

Cables screws and pins make it easy to monitor water remediation jobs, check for leaks and monitor other moisture sensitive areas. Once 6 ft LP-mini cable is installed, the moisture meter can be connected any time. Changes in moisture content become immediately obvious, since measurements are taken from the same spot at the same depth. Add EL pins to reach up to 7″ deep.

The mini-Ligno MD/C offers Lignomat quality at its best price. The measuring range of 6%-25% is still wide enough to cover all applications from woodworking to home construction and home restoration, lumber drying, even measuring firewood. Correction settings are built-in for measuring hardwoods, softwoods and panel products.

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, add the electrode E14-m or E16, whichever is more convenient. Add EL pins for measuring in-depth up to 7″ deep.

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 that affect the entire building. Unnoticed moisture infiltration can have severe consequences, floors are ruined, dry rot develops and structural components disintegrate. 

Monitoring: Using extension cables has the advantage, that and area can  monitor leaks, which are out of easy reach when a building is being dried out or totally inaccessible after the walls are closed up. System works well for short and long-term monitoring in buildings. Measurements taken from the same spot at the same depth at different times will produce a series of truly comparable moisture percentages. The values show, if drying is proceeded as expected or if a new problem is occurring.

Pins (screws) are installed in the trouble spot and connected to a LP-mini cable. 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. 

Standard cable length is 3 ft, upon request we supply cables up to 50ft long. Cables should be ordered long enough to keep the open cable-end in an easily accessible area. Measurements are taken by plugging the open cable-end into the meter. If cables are already installed to monitor the drying-out process, they could be left in place for long-term monitor leaks.

For data logging moisture and humidity measurements, 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 to any depth needed.
– 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-mini cables is included upon request.

The LP-mini cable connects the meter to all pins listed above. The cables in the package have a standard length of 3 ft. Longer cables are available upon request.

If you wanted to use the PK probes for wood, order the M-11 package.


The electrode E14-m with EG pins: The slim shape of the electrode allows for checking around pipes, below window sills, in wall corners, places where round electrodes or built-in pins from moisture meters cannot reach. With the E14-m 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.
