Ligno Mini DX/C

The Ligno Mini DX/C moisture meter comes highly recommended by independent trade magazines for its accuracy, convenience and external probe capability. The DX/C combines all advantages of our pocket-size mini-ligno moisture meters and more.

  • A perfectly designed case with built-in pins
  • A wide measuring range for wood
  • Built-in corrections for 40 wood groups
  • Large display with easy-to-read numbers
  • Reference scale for non-wood building materials
  • Available with connector for external electrode or in-kiln probes


  • A unique shape that fits comfortably in your hand when measuring
  • A measuring range low enough to check hardwood floors (5%*)
  • A measuring range high enough to evaluate wet lumber (65*)
  • A bright, digital display readable even in dark crawl spaces
  • Resolution of 0.1% below the critical range of 10%
  • 40 settings for wood species corrections including a chart for domestic and tropical wood species including bamboo
  • A reference scale 0-99 for non-wood building materials such as drywall, plaster and other “soft” building materials. (For instance, to pinpoint problems around windows & showers, leaky ceilings, broken water lines or flooded buildings)
  • Connection for external cables and electrode (to evaluate concrete or reach hidden areas for moisture testing, even behind 7″ of insulation)

The functionally designed mini-Ligno DX/C fits in your hand when measuring and is small enough to carry in a shirt pocket. The green cap covers the pins during transportation and serves as a handle when pushing the pins into the wood. This unique design allows pushing behind the entire meter to insert the tapered pins easily. Longer pins are stored inside the meter for measuring thicker material. The short pins are ideal for surface or end cut readings and for veneer. For measurements, push the pins into wood. The unique on-off switch between the pins, turns meter on automatically and bright LED lights instantly indicate moisture percentage.
