Lignomat offers a new moisture and humidity measuring kit featuring the Ligno-VersaTec, which can be operated as a pin or pinless moisture, and a thermo-hygrometer.
“The meter has 150 individual wood species settings for pin and pinless mode,” the company said in a statement. “The pin mode is accessed by connecting one of the handheld probes. For core measurements in pin mode, the Slide-Hammer Electrode E12 is included with up to 2” long pins. As the pins are hammered into the wood it becomes obvious, if the wood is well dried or not. For hard materials the Electrode E14 is included. The user can hammer on top of the Electrode E14 to insert the pins into the hardest woods.
“The pinless (scan) mode has a unique dual-depth feature. The measuring depth can be selected to 3/4” and 1/4” deep. This allows for measuring thinner materials than the standard 3/4”-thick boards. It also allows measuring engineered products more accurately with the ability to read the top layer of the solid wood separate from the core material. There are also new calibrations available for OSB and other panel products.
“A precision RH Probe is included. The probe can be connected to the Ligno-VersaTec for measuring humidity and ambient temperature.”
