How it Works - Four-In-One Moisture Measurement System

Search Mode Non Invasive

Search mode is used to assess the moisture level beneath the surface of solid walls and floors independently of the surface conditions. When held against the surface, the instrument transmits a signal into the material. The relative moisture level is shown on the digital display. The measurement presentaion helps the user to:

  • Look for moisture behind ceramic tile, water stains, tile and vinyl floor coverings, wood, drywall, gyprock, plaster, masonry, concrete and concrete block
  • Assess, in relative terms, if the material is dry, borderline or damp condition and map the problem numerically
  • Non-invasive pinless radio frequency (RF) finds moisture from ¾” (19mm) to 5” (120mm) below the surface
  • This mode of measurement is not adversely affected by the presence of surface moisture

Note: Metal additives in concrete or foil linings can create false positive readings

Measure Mode Pin-Type

This mode diagnoses the extent of moisture intrusion for damage assessment and monitors drying out of building structures. Measure mode readings are precise and specific to the immediate area of contact of the electrodes.

  • Use built-in pind or plug in the heavy duty moisture probe for measuring in hard-to-reach areas
  • Use accessories, such as hammer probes, to measure at depth
  • Deep wall pin-type probes establish the presence of moisture in wall cavity insulation, sub and surface structures
  • Other probes are available for EIFS, wood floors, baseboards and more
  • Measures moisture in wood and wood floors, subfloors, drywall, gyprock, concrete and concrete block, stucco, plaster, masonry and EIFS


This mode measures or monitors buildings for adequate ventilation affecting indoor air quality and moisture problems. Measures relative humidity and temperature, dew point and surface temperature, surface proximity to dew point (condensation) and grains per pound, as well as multiple psychrometric calculations

  • Allows measurement of equipment such as dehumidifiers
  • Measures equilibrium relative humidity in concrete floors using the in situ probe method or humidity box
  • Use to detect conditions for mold and fungus growth, that can lead to unhealthy living conditions

Surface Temperature (IR)

This mode checks surface temperature, utilizing a laser pointer, to calculate proximity to dew point.
