    FLIR MR176 Thermal Imaging Moisture Meter

    Black Friday Sale 2020: Discount available on this product (sale ends 1/12/20)

    Using a thermal sensor to allow surveyors to visualise moisture damage as cold temperature spots, the FLIR MR176 Thermal Imaging Moisture Meter is perfect for eliminating the guesswork when detecting hidden moisture.

    Equipped with an 80 x 60 pixel thermal imaging detector and constant display of temperature across and area, the FLIR MR176 can fully customise readings to your preference, selecting to display moisture temperature, relative humidity, dew point, vapour pressure and mixing ratio, as well as your choice of colour palette.

    With the option of using either the instrument’s non-contact mode to gain moisture readings or it’s pin probe for an even more accurate measurement, the FLIR MR176 is a truly versatile instrument.

    The FLIR MR176 allows users to save images and associated measurement data at the touch of button. Compatible with the free FLIR Tools software, users can then upload records to create professional reports or carry out detailed analysis.

    Featuring a variety of functionality to aid the user - such as a laser pointer for precision targeting and field-replaceable temperature and humidity sensors - the FLIR MR176 is the ideal imaging moisture meter for a range situations.
