Extech MO55 Combination Pin/Pinless Moisture Meter
Quick Moisture Measurements on Wood and Building Materials
Take quick Moisture measurements on wood and building materials with choice of pin or pinless (non-invasive) method. Easy-to-operate with display icons that indicate the levels of moisture content plus audible alert feature. Ideal for building restoration projects and applications where moisture detection on floors, tiles and under carpets is critical. A must-have tool for analyzing the after-effects of water leakage behind walls and in ceilings.
The compact Extech MO55 takes quick Moisture level reference measurements (in percent %) on wood and building materials. The Extech MO55 can be used in pinless mode (rear sensor) or in pin mode. The MO55 is simple to operate and offers measurement digits, audible tones and ‘moisture drop’ icons to indicate moisture level content.
