The cable/pin system allows monitoring for moisture changes in hard-to-reach, inaccessible areas, during drying-out after water damage and for long-term leak surveillance. At any time ,the meter can be used by itself to measure wood and other hygroscopic materials.
The package V-10 consists of:
- Ligno-VersaTec meter
- 1 adapter H
- 1 set of screws with washers
- 1 LP-H cable
Option: 1, 3, 5 set of cables
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.
E14-V and E12 pin electrode and Thermo-Hygro probe for RH measurements can be added.
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 when adding E14-V or E12 electrode.
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. Unnoticed moisture accumulations can have severe consequences, floor coverings are ruined, dry rot develops and structural components disintegrate. Monitoring can also be used to track the drying-out process after water damage has occurred.
System works well for short and long-term monitoring in buildings. Using extension cables has the advantage, that areas can be monitored, which are totally inaccessible after the walls are closed up. Measurements are obtained quickly by connecting the open cable end to the meter.
Monitoring: Measurements taken periodically from the same spot at the same depth will produce a series of truly comparable moisture percentages. The values show, if the drying-out process is proceeding as expected or if a new problem is occurring.
The LP-H cable has loops on one end to connect pins and screws and 4mm plugs on the other end to plug into the adapter H at the moisture meter. 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.
Cables should be ordered long enough to keep the open cable-end in an easily accessible area, standard length is 3ft.
Measurements are taken by plugging the open cable-end into the adapter H and connecting the adapter H to the meter. If cables are already installed to monitor the drying-out process, they could be left in place for long-term monitoring.
For data logging moisture and humidity measurements automatically. we offer the
An assortment of pins is available:
- off-the-shelf, stainless steel screws 1/2″
- 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-H cables is included.
The LP-H cable connects the meter to all pins listed above. The cables in the V-10 package have a standard length of 3 ft. Cables can be ordered in sets of 1, 3, 5. Longer cables are available upon request.
Electrode E14-V with EG pins: Hand probe for moisture measurements any where at any time. The slim shape of the electrode allows for checking around pipes, below window sills, in wall corners, places where round electrodes or pinless measurements from the Ligno-VersaTec cannot reach. With the E14-V 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. Upon request we shorten the 7″ long pins to any length required between 7″ and 1/2″. Package V4-10S.
Thermo-Hygro probe: The Ligno-VersaTec can be easily converted into a precision, fast responding thermo-Hygrometer. Thermo-Hygro probe comes with plug-in adapter to fit the Ligno-VersaTec.
