The package consists of the multi function moisture meter Ligno-VersaTec (pin-pinless-RH) and E12 pin electrode in a hard-shell carry case. In pinless mode flat materials can be checked fast and easy up to 3/4″ deep. In pin mode in-depth measurements with E12 electrode show, if wood is evenly dried or if a moisture gradient exists between surface and core, up to 2″ deep, even behind wet surfaces.
The package V2-M consists of:
The Ligno-VersaTec is the most advanced multi function meter among Lignomat’s moisture meters for pin-pinless-RH measurements. 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…
The meter by itself provides for dual-depth pinless measurements. Connectors for pin electrodes and RH cables or RH adapter are installed in the top of the meter.
– BNC connector for electrode cables and in-kiln, remote cables with Adapter H
– 3.5mm stereo jack to connect RH cable or RH adapter.
Two measuring plates for pinless dual-depth mode are mounted on the back of the meter.
Package includes E12 electrode. Accessories for measuring RH/T ambient conditions and in-situ concrete moisture testing can be added.
The Ligno-VersaTec multi function meter by itself allows fast and easy moisture testing of flat surfaces 1/4″ and 3/4″ deep. Percent values are indicated for all wood species, OSB and other panel products, engineered floors, bamboo and drywall. Relative scales are for all other materials including concrete. If the material is not flat, or measurements should reach deeper or you need to find differences between surface and core moisture, the Electrodes E12 or E14can be used to accomplish those tasks.
Electrode E12: The E12 is designed to measure from the surface to 2″ deep (with DB pins). All E12 pins are insulated and measure only at the tip. The slide hammer helps inserting and removing the pins. As pins are hammered into the material, consecutive readings show the moisture distribution within the material at every depth level the pins are driven to. The ability to measure a moisture gradient is one of the main reasons for our customers to use the electrode E12, even though the Ligno-VersaTec by itself can take moisture measurements at two depth levels 1/4″ and 3/4″ deep in pinless mode.
Wood: Taking numerous readings as pins are inserted, indicate if a moisture gradient exists or if the wood is dry throughout the core. Making sure wood is evenly dried is the best assurance for quality wood products. The thicker the wood, the more important core readings become. When inspecting wood floors, using the E12 gives you a tool to assess moisture distribution through floor planks into the sub floor without having to remove any floor planks. No other tool can achieve the same measuring accuracy at a defined depth.
Restoration: The moisture in structural components even behind wall coverings can be checked with the electrode E12. When assessing water damage, the pins of the E12 can be driven to different depth levels and thus indicate how far water has been absorbed or if there is still residual moisture inside the structure after drying. Insulated pins can measure dry material behind wet surfaces.
The electrode E12 comes with 1 pair each of 1″ pins and 1 pair of 1.5″. The 2″ long pins need to be ordered separately.
E12 pins are teflon coated to only measure at the tip and come in three sizes:
– DZ Pins insulated, measuring depth 1”
– DA Pins insulated, measuring depth 1.5”
– DB Pins insulated, measuring depth 2” (order separately)
Adding electrode E14-V to easier reach critical areas during restoration work. Pkg V24-M
Adding RH Thermo-Hygro probe allows measuring relative humidity of air. See Options when ordering
Adding in-situ RH accessories allows measuring concrete moisture in compliance with ASTM F2170. Pkg. V2-KM
Adding in-kiln cables allows measuring inside a kiln without entering the hot kiln. Pkg V2-11M
