How it Works

Measure Mode Pin-Type

This mode diagnoses the extent of moisture intrusion for damage assessment and monitors drying out of building structures For the TimberMaster, it measures the moisture content in various timbers. Measure mode readings are precise and specific to the immediate area of contact of the electrodes.

  • Use built-in pins 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
