The mini-Ligno SD/C from Lignomat is an instrument to identify moisture problems that occur in buildings, homes and offices. Homeowners, painters, inspectors, contractors, and architects “find this meter valuable because excessive moisture in a building can cause decay, mold and severe health risks,” the company said.

The versatile digital meter comes with 4 scales: 2 scales for different wood species, a scale for drywall or gypsum and a reference scale for non-wood materials such as concrete (with electrode E-16) plaster and insulation.
