Lignomat Ligno-Scanner D
Ligno-Scanner D Moisture Meter
The Ligno-Scanner D is a pinless moisture meter that gives true wood moisture readings in percent. The meter uses built-in corrections for different species. Corrections can be programmed by entering the specific gravity between 0.3 and 1.0. Resolution is 0.1% for the entire measuring range. HOLD function is available in all pinless moisture meters from Lignomat.
Why choose a Ligno-Scanner D from Lignomat?
Approved by woodworkers for quality and price. → Fine Woodworking review. Unique measuring technology assures accuracy, repeatability, and reliability backed by a 2-year warranty.
When selecting the right Ligno-Scanner for your application consider measuring depth and the materials you want to measure. The measuring depth is crucial for any pinless moisture meter.
The standard measuring depth for pinless moisture meters is 3/4 inch, just like the Ligno-Scanner D. The moisture meter will not measure any deeper than 3/4″ and if thinner boards are measured, measurements could be inaccurate. If you work with a variety of thicknesses, you can always stack thinner materials to a 3/4″ stack. We also offer dual-depth Ligno-Scanners.
The Scanner D has a reference scale for testing non-wood materials. Works well for compare and search mode in restoration applications.
- Ligno-Scanner S, for wood, 1/4″ deep
- Ligno-Scanner SD, dual-depth for wood, 3/4″ and 1/4″
- Ligno-Scanner SDM, dual depth for wood, bamboo, drywall, concrete
- Ligno-DuoTec BW: Like the Ligno Scanner SDM plus RH meter, add RH BluePeg Probe
- Ligno-VersaTec: all in one pin-pinless-RH meter
The measuring depth of a pinless meter is crucial. Moisture readings are too low when the Scanner is placed on a workpiece which is thinner than the measuring depth. Scanners never measure any deeper than the measuring depth.
The entire measuring pad has to be on a flat and smooth surface for accurate readings
*Species Corrections for Ligno-Scanners and Ligno-VersaTec correlate directly to the Specific Gravity. Example: For a specific gravity of 0.57 (0.57g/cm 3 )set species # 57. Specific Gravity for most wood species can be found on the Internet. We also include a Species Chart with recommended settings.
The Ligno-Scanners SDM and the Ligno-VersaTec have calibrations built-in for drywall and concrete and a reference scale for non-wood building materials.
Measuring range: 5-60% dependent upon Species. For hardwoods the Scanners read lower than 5%, for softwoods, the Scanners start reading above 5%. Resolution of read-out: 0.1% Less accurate above Fiber Saturation Point at 30%.
Wood temperature correction is not necessary.
