The package consist of the moisture meter Ligno-VersaTec (pin-pinless-RH) and the E16 pin electrode in a hardshell carrying case. In pinless mode flat materials can be checked fast and easy up to 3/4″ deep. In pin mode the electrode E16 gives instant readings up to 7″ deep in hard building materials such as concrete, stone, brick.
The package V6-S consists of:
The Ligno-VersaTec is the most advanced moisture 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 moisture 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 moisture meter.
Package includes E16 electrode.
Accessories for measuring RH/T ambient conditions and in-situ concrete moisture testing can be added.
Pinless Measurements: The Ligno-VersaTec moisture 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, for concrete and other hard materials use the electrode E16. For wood and panels the Electrodes E12 or E14 can be used to accomplish those tasks.
Electrode E16: The electrode E16 is used mainly to measure hard building materials, such as concrete slabs, brick walls, tile. The electrode can be also used when the distance or the angle between the 2 measuring pins need to be changed. Standard distance between pins is 1 1/4″.
The electrode E16 consists of two separate posts. Each post is 2″ long with a ball head. The cable is connected through a hole in the post using a 4mm banana plug. The bottom of the posts have threads for the pins. An assortment of pins is available with lengths from 3/16″ to 7″ (Pins EG, EL and EC, EA, EV). Tapping on top of the ball head with a mallet or hammer will drive pins into the material. Pre-drilling holes maybe required for deeper measurements.
We recommend a distance of 4″ (10cm) between the pins for measuring cementitious materials including concrete. Cementitious materials have a very low electrical resistance compared to wood and tend to give high values, therefore changing the distance allows a wider moisture range.
Measurements obtained from concrete or cementitious materials are not true percent values. They only can be used as reference numbers or comparative readings. Comparative measurements become meaningful, when a dry (wet) sample piece of the material is available. Measurements can then be compared to the moisture value for dry (wet).
Using the Ligno-VersaTec with the Electrode E16 gives immediate results when measuring concrete. The measurements can show areas of high and low moisture. If measurements are taken with the EL pins at different depth levels, the moisture profile of the slab becomes obvious. However, it cannot replace the in-situ probe test or the Calcium-Chloride test which allow to determine, if a wood floor can be installed. More info on concrete moisture testing
EC pins are included in package V6-S.
