The V4-S package is used to detect moisture problems in buildings. That can be a tricky job, because moisture can be close to the surface or hides behind structural components and travels, wherever it finds a path. The multi-purpose electrode E14-V is specifically designed for reaching these trouble spots.
In addition, the E14-V is strong enough to be hammered into hard materials such as strand bamboo, hard hardwood and cementitious panel products.
The package consists of:
The Ligno-VersaTec is the most advanced 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 can be used as a dual-depth pinless meter. Connectors for pin electrodes and RH cables or RH adapter are installed in the top of the meter.
– BNC connector for cables from electrodes E12, E14, E16 and cables to monitor critical areas (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 E14 pin electrode. Accessories can be added for measuring RH/T ambient conditions and in-situ concrete moisture testing.
The pinless mode of the Ligno-VersaTec allows for fast and easy scanning of flat surfaces 1/4″ and 3/4″ deep. Percent values are indicated for all wood species, OSB and other panel products, bamboo and drywall. Relative scales are for all other materials including concrete. Pinless measurements are not possible, if the material is not flat or measurements should reach deeper than 3/4″ or you need to find differences between surface and core moisture. Those tasks can be accomplished with the E14-V electrode.
Electrode E14-V can be used for measuring moisture on any surface up to 3/4″ deep with insulated pins EG. In addition, the slim shape of the E14 allows checking tight places, around pipes, below window sills, in wall corners, places which cannot be reached easily with other hand probes. If the pins are hammered into the material, consecutive readings show moisture changes within the material at every depth level the pins are driven to. Adding the 7″ long EL pins lets you reach through insulation or under baseboards into structural components. Great for EIFS inspections.
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. Also, you can keep a safe 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.
Using the external electrode E14-m allows you to keep the meter display visible in front of you. Measuring ceilings, walls or floors with the meter itself can make it impossible to see the display.
Electrode and pins are very sturdy and allow hard pounding to insert pins into hard materials. Works for strand bamboo as well as hard and cementitious panel products.
Electrode E14-V with BNC cable and 1 pair EG pins are included in the package V4-S.
Options for V4-S package:
Adding pins #EL 7″ for E14-V.
Adding RH Thermo-Hygro probe to measure ambient relative humidity and temperature.
Adding cables to monitor drying out after water damage or to measure remote inaccessible areas after leaks. (Package V4-10S)
