The Lignomat VersaTec uses an advanced microprocessor technology from Lignomat. Designed for maximum versatility, it comes with built-in adjustments for different wood species, bamboo, sheetrock and a reference scale for concrete and other building materials.It also offers three modes: pin mode, scan (pinless) mode with selectable measuring depths, and a relative humidity (RH) mode that measures temperature and RH. The calibration is internally checked before each reading for the pin and pinless modes and automatically adjusted as needed.
Lignomat Meter Reviews
The VersaTec meter and its hammer probe accessory use an advanced microprocessor technology from Lignomat. Designed for maximum versatility, the meter offers three modes: pin, scan (pinless) with selectable measuring depths and relative humidity (RH) for measuring both temperature and RH.
It comes with built-in calibrations for different wood species, bamboo, sheetrock and a reference scale for concrete and other building materials. The calibration is internally checked before each reading for pin and pinless mode and automatically adjusted as needed.
The Lignomat Scanner D is a pinless, capacitance-type meter capable of reading moisture in wood, bamboo, and other building materials without leaving marks or damaging the material.
The Lignomat Scanner S/D is a dual depth (1/4 inch or 3/4 inch) pinless, capacitance-type meter. It is engineered to provide the average moisture content (MC) for the portion of the wood sample between the surface and the selected depth of penetration. The S/D is lightweight, compact and easy to use, and can be used on a variety of building materials such as wood, composites, laminates and sheetrock. The meter features a built-in species adjustment once the specific gravity is entered, and a HOLD function that makes this meter handy for working in tight spaces.
The Lignomat Mini DX/C is a pin moisture meter with two sets of pins. Unfortunately, the pins are too short for anything other than measuring moisture near the surface of the wood.
The Lignomat Mini DX/C moisture meter comes with the option of using a hammer probe accessory for obtaining deeper measurements within the wood sample. However, we found the hammer probe’s pins to be of poor quality. A large number of them broke during testing and had to be replaced.
