Ligno-Scanner S Moisture Meter

Press Release from Lignomat USA Ltd.

Lignomat’s Pinless Advantage:

  • Quickly scan large number of boards without leaving pinholes
  • No effort is required to push pins into hardwood
  • Pinless meters can read lower moisture values in hardwood than pin meters

The Ligno-Scanner S gives true wood moisture readings in percent with built-in corrections for different species. Corrections can also be used by entering the specific gravity between 0.3 and 1.0. Resolution is 0.1% for entire measuring range. All Lignomat pinless moisture meters include a HOLD function.

Lignomat’s unique measuring technology assures calibration accuracy, reliability and repeatability backed by a 2-year warranty on all meters. Our scanners produce the same accurate moisture values, today, tomorrow and in a year. The Ligno Scanner is convenient to use. The meter fits comfortably in your hand for measurements. Operation is simple with clearly marked buttons. The large display not only shows the moisture percentages, but also indicate settings for wood species and measuring depth.


While selecting the right pinless moisture meter for your application consider measuring depth and the materials you are measuring. The measuring depth is crucial for any pinless meter.

Pinless moisture meters are 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 measuring a stack of a few sheets works well.

The meter is sensitive to surface moisture so it can check waterborne finishes, veneer wood and can measure surface moisture.

Measure non-wood building materials with the reference scale 0-100.
Works great for compare and search mode in restoration applications.
