Dual Depth Measuring Range
Deep Depth penetration of up to 1-1/4" (30mm) and Shallow Depth penetration of up to 3/8” (10mm). The dual depth readings of surface and core moisture can be compared to eliminate the influence of the substrate when testing coverings. The pinless moisture meter measures moisture content % of wood from 0-30%. The meter can be expanded with the use of pin probes for wood, wood by-products and drywall as well as relative humidity sensor probes for evaluating ambient conditions. All moisture and humidity readings can be visualized and Geotagged with the Tramex Meters App and turned into moisture maps, reports and charts for sharing.
NDT - Non destructive testing
Built-in hygrometer and Infrared Surface Thermometer
Pin Probe (optional plug-in probe)
The Moisture Encounter MEX5 detects and evaluates moisture conditions within various building materials by non-destructively measuring the electrical impedance. A low frequency electronic signal is transmitted into the material via the electrodes in the base of the instrument. The strength of this signal varies in proportion to the amount of moisture in the material under test. The MEX5 determines the strength of the current and converts this to a moisture content value, displaying it on the large display.
