The Ligno-Scanner S gives true wood moisture readings in percent using built-in corrections for different species. Corrections can also 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 meters from Lignomat.
The Ligno-Scanner S is set for 1/4″ deep, which 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 is often used to check waterborne finishes, veneer wood and to measure surface moisture.
