Using electromagnetic wave technology to measure wood moisture accurately, this meter has no pins, so it won’t damage wood surfaces. In shallow-scanning mode (1/4"), it tests wood 5/16" to 3/4" thick; deep mode (3/4") is for stock 3/4" to 1 3/4". This lets you scan boards of varying thicknesses, or read thick lumber at the center as well as at the surface to identify moisture gradients typical of case hardening.
The meter computes the average moisture content for the area scanned, corrects for the specific gravity of the species being tested, and shows the result (from 4% to 32% in 0.1 increments) on the digital display. To ensure accuracy, the included calibrator lets you easily calibrate the meter on-site.
A removable protective bumper reduces the risk of damage to the meter from knocks or falls and an auto shut-off feature helps preserve battery life. Comes with a battery, a manual, a species settings booklet and a fitted storage case. Backed by a manufacturer’s 7-year warranty.
