  • Description

    Tramex ME5 Moisture Encounter Meter

    The Tramex ME5 Moisture Encounter Meter is a non-invasive moisture meter that can detect moisture in wood and building materials such as drywall, plaster, tiles and masonry. It uses a non-destructive electrical signal to measure wood moisture content between 5% and 30% and can also produce a 0 to 100 WME comparative reading.

    The moisture meter’s electrical signal can penetrate down to 30mm or 10mm depending on the user’s settings and it has five sensitivity ranges for different materials. The Tramex ME5 therefore has multiple applications including location of moisture-related issues within buildings, mapping moisture damage in a building, monitoring progressive drying conditions, and comparison of surface and core moisture levels.

    Readings are shown on the Tramex ME5’s analogue dial with dual scales for wood moisture content and a comparative scale, and an audio signal also provides feedback. The measurement mode is selected via the simple push button interface and the mode is highlighted by an LED. The HOLD mode freezes the dial needle in place and, via a handy Bluetooth connection, the meter can even send readings to be saved on the Tramex App on an iOS or Android mobile device.

    Tramex ME5

    The Tramex ME5 has a sleek, modern design and has tough housing for use in the field. It has a long battery life and simply needs to be held next to the surface to take a non-invasive moisture measurement.
