This convenient and compact Moisture Meter allows users to take quick moisture-level reference measurements on wood and building materials. It is easy to operate with display icons that indicate the levels of moisture content plus an audible alert feature. It is ideal for building restoration projects and applications where moisture detection on floors and under carpets is critical. It displays moisture level in wood and building materials such as wall board, sheet rock, cardboard, plaster, concrete and mortar. An audible alert beeps faster as the moisture level increases. Icons display low, medium and high levels of moisture content. The meter features a compact design, a data hold that freezes reading on the display, and a built-in battery level check and measurement verification test. An auto-power-off feature conserves battery power.
