Dual function moisture meter with both non-invasive Radio Frequency (RF) measurement and invasive pin type electrical conductivity measurement. Non-invasive (pinless) rapid Radio Frequency (RF) moisture detection to 19mm below surface. On the back of the instrument there is a large flat area for positive engagement with material being tested.
Once a high reading has been found it can be confirmed using the pins on the top of the instrument or on the extension probe when testing in hard to reach areas
Pins should be pushed against surface, not necessarily into surface, to obtain a reading. Pins can penetrate up to 12mm if needed. Displays percentage moisture content of wood or Wood Moisture Equivalent (WME) of non-wood materials. Normal range for wood is considered to be approx. 6 to 12% moisture content.
