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).
The hold function freezes the last measurement while the backlit display ensures that the meter can be used in all lighting conditions. A slip-on protective cap and belt bag ensure that the moisture meter is stored safely and a hand strap helps prevent the meter from accidentally being dropped.
Practical – the characteristic curves in the Testo 606-1 moisture meterThe Testo 606-1 comes complete with a wide range of characteristic curves for wood and building materials. This allows the measured the moisture content to be shown directly as a weight percentage.
Characteristic curves for precise wood moisture measurements:
| Beech | Spruce | Larch | Oak | Pine | Maple |
Characteristic curves for precise building material measurements:
| Cement screed | Concrete Plaster | Anhydrite screed | Cement | Limestone | Bricks |
