  • Testo 606-1 Moisture Meter

The testo 606-1 moisture meter can measure different types of wood and building materials. It is easy to use, and comes with a wide range of quality features.

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).

There is a hold function and a backlit display, for use in all lighting conditions. A protective cap and belt bag ensure that the meter is stored safely, and a hand strap prevents the meter from being dropped. The testo 606-1 comes complete with a wide range of characteristic curves for wood and building materials. This allows the measured moisture content to be shown directly, as a weight percentage.
