Package V4-KS


Before installing resilient floor coverings, the moisture in concrete slabs should be tested to avoid floor covering failure. The floor covering industry recommends the RH in-situ probe method for concrete moisture testing. ASTM F2170.


The versatile, accurate Ligno-VersaTec incorporates multiple functions and delivers absolute reliability for many years of usage. Your best choice for a pin – pinless – RH combination meter.

System complies with ASTM F2170 for in-situ RH concrete moisture testing. Concrete moisture can also be measured in pinless mode following ASTM F2659

Besides accessories for in-situ concrete testing, the Package V4-KS  includes electrode E14-V. Used mainly for tracking moisture in floor installations and inspections, new construction, or for water damage repair. Slim design allows checking corners, under moldings, around pipes. Handle can be elongated to reach high without a ladder and low without kneeling. Tough enough to hammer into hard materials, bamboo and hard wood.

Product Description

Package V4-KS

The V4-KS package offers four measuring technologies to detect moisture within the building envelope;  resilient floor coverings, walls, ceilings and roofs, including the concrete slab in preparation for installing resilient floor coverings. Package designed for inspector/restoration professionals.

Pinless mode: materials can be checked fast and easy, scanning along the surface.
Pin measurements: The E14 electrode is used for in-depth measurements
In-situ probe testing: Included are standard accessories for in-situ moisture testing of concrete slabs.
Thermo-hygrometer: With RH BluePeg probe and RH adapter, the VersaTec can be used as a precision, fast-acting thermo-hygrometer.

The package V4-KS consists of:

The Ligno-VersaTec is the most advanced meter among Lignomat’s pin-pinless-RH 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…

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 V4-KS includes E14-V pin electrode and accessories for measuring RH/T ambient conditions and in-situ concrete moisture testing.

Pinless Measurements 
The Ligno-VersaTec meter allows fast and easy measuring of flat materials 1/4″ and 3/4″ deep. Percent values are indicated for all wood species, OSB and other panel products, engineered floors, bamboo and drywall. If the material is not flat, or measurements should reach deeper or you need to find differences between surface and core moisture, the Electrodes E14-V can be used to accomplish those tasks. Maximum measuring depth is reached by adding EL pins teflon-coated, 7″ long. 

In-situ probe testing of concrete
The V2-KM package contains accessories needed for RH testing: 1 RH Bluepeg probe (option 5 or 10 RH probes), 10 sleeves with caps, 1 RH-CC cable and 1 brush (drill bit is not included).  Design of equipment and test procedure are governed by the ASTM standard F2170.  Lignomat’s RH BluePeg system complies with the latest F2170 standard.

After drilling, cleaning and setting the sleeve, the RH BluePeg probe easily drops into the sleeve. The cap fits perfectly and is as flat as can be. The cable connection is provided by a simple, fail-proof 3.5mm stereo plug. No pin alignment of the cable needs to be fitted and no set-up of the meter is necessary.  The meter switches into RH mode as soon as an RH cable is connected. Plug in and read, that’s what our customers like.

The display shows the measured value and the RH Probe number. The RH probe number is an individual number 1-999 to allow keeping track of probe location during testing, measurements and performance.

To activate the RH thermo-hygrometer mode, plug the RH Adapter into the RH BluePeg probe, next the RH Adapter can be plugged into the stereo connector at the top of the meter. Instead of using the Adapter RH, the 6 ft RH-CC cable included in the package can be used for remote measurements (any stereo cable could be used).

As soon as the connection is established, the Ligno-VersaTec is in 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.

Specifications RH BluePeg: +/-2% (10-90%), +/-3% below 10%, above 90%
T: +/- 0.5°F (32-120°F) , +/- 1°F (5-32°F and 120-160°F) Response time 8 sec.
Resolution for RH and T: 0.1% and 0.1°.

Pin mode with electrode E14-V

Inspector Electrode E14-V with teflon-coated pins EG: The slim shape 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 you can truly track moisture where it hides. Adding the 7″ long EL pins lets you reach through insulation or under baseboards into structural components. Great for EIFS inspections. For depth measurements up to 2″ deep in wood and panel products, we recommend adding the slide-hammer electrode E12 for easy setting and removing pins. See also package V24-KM with electrodes E12 and E14-V.

The knob at the end of the handle can be removed and replaced by a paint brush handle or broom stick. Using the paint brush handle allows to extend the reach. You can stay a distance from mold infested areas and still be able to get reliable measurements. Extending the handle with a broom stick makes measuring carpets and carpet padding easy without crouching down. Ceilings can be checked for moisture leakage without a ladder.

Pins measure only at the tip. EG and EL pins are teflon coated up to the electrode handle. Moisture from a wet surface is never picked up, even if the pins are pushed all the way into the material.

Another benefit of using the external electrode E14-V is that you can keep the meter in your hand and the display is always close-by. Measuring ceilings, walls or floors with the meter itself can make it impossible to see the display.

In addition, the electrode and pins are built tough, which allows the user to hammer pins into wood and other hard materials, without damage to the probe or the pins. (Strand bamboo, hard hardwood and even cementitious materials)


Electrode E12 is added for measuring wood and other relatively hard materials up to 2″ deep. The action of the slide hammer allows inserting and removing the pins up to 2″ deep,  when measuring subfloor through floor planks, reaching structural lumber behind drywall or simply measuring thicker wood or looking for differences between surface and core moisture.

Electrode E16 is added for instant measurements in hard building materials such as concrete, brick, stone, tile. Predrilling holes may be required. Advantage is that the result of the measurement is instantly available. For measurements at different depth levels, comparing values indicates if a moisture gradient exists. For measurements in different locations, areas of high and low moisture distribution can be determined. With EL pins up to 7″ deep.
