The Ligno-Scanner S gives true wood moisture readings in percent with built-in corrections for different species.
Pinless moisture meters are usually calibrated for wood 3/4″ thick. The Ligno-Scanner S is set for 1/4″ deep, therefore it works great for all boards less than 3/4″ thick. The S also works for veneer wood, 1mm and up.
For thinner veneers we recommend measuring a stack of a few sheets.
The meter is sensitive to surface moisture so it can check waterborne finishes, veneer wood and can measure surface moisture.
|5-60% dependent upon species setting*
|0.1% resolution for the entire range.
|71 wood group settings, or simply use specific gravity of the wood, between 0.3 and 1.0 (setting 30-100)
