The Tramex Moisture Encounter ME5 is a Dual-depth, non-destructive, instant moisture meter for measuring & evaluating a range of building materials such as wood, plaster, drywall, brick, roofing. 

The ME5 features Deep Depth penetration up to 1.25" (30mm) and Shallow Depth penetration up to 0.40” (10mm).  The 5 Ranges of sensitivity: Wood & Timber / Shallow Depth / Drywall & Roofing / Plaster & Tile / Masonry, make the Moisture Encounter ideal for testing in and through a wide range of building materials. Bluetooth connectivity to the Tramex Meters App allows for visualization of readings and data reporting to mobile devices.

Features:

  • 5 Ranges of sensitivity: Wood & Timber / Shallow Depth / Drywall & Roofing / Plaster & Tile / Masonry
  • Dual-Depth penetration allows for comparative of surface and core moisture and elimination of substrate influence on the testing of coverings.
  • Deep signal penetration, up to 1 1⁄4" (30mm) in wood and drywall, detects elevated moisture through most covering materials without having to damage or puncture the materials being tested.
  • Shallow Depth scale is designed to have a field penetration of up to 10mm (0.4 inches).
  • Wide range of readings from 5% to 30% on Wood Scale and 0 to 100 on comparative scale for all other materials.
  • Detects moisture through paint, wallpaper, drywall, ceramic tiles, floor coverings, wood, ceiling tiles, roofing membranes, and asphalt composition shingles.
  • Bluetooth connection to accompanying IOS & Android App allowing for continual development and integration of apps and reporting. 
  • Hold Function which enables the user to “freeze” the reading, useful when taking readings where the meter face may not be visible.
  • High Moisture Audio Warning Tone which can be enabled or disabled.
  • Large clear easy to read analog display giving meaningful readings.
  • Rugged ergonomically designed enclosure.
