The two ram electrodes are pushed firmly into the wood or building material where they measure the moisture content as a percentage based on the dry mass (dry weight).
The hold function freezes the last measurement while the backlit display ensures that the meter can be used in all lighting conditions. A slip-on protective cap and belt bag ensure that the moisture meter is stored safely and a hand strap helps prevent the meter from accidentally being dropped.
Practical – the characteristic curves in the testo 606-1 moisture meter
The testo 606-1 comes complete with a wide range of characteristic curves for wood and building materials. This allows the measured the moisture content to be shown directly as a weight percentage.
Characteristic curves for precise wood moisture measurements:
Characteristic curves for precise building material measurements:
- Cement screed
- Anhydrite screed
- Cement mortar
- Limestone mortar
