When precise wood moisture measurements are required, there is no substitute for the TimberMaster Moisture Meter

Measure 150 Wood Species

The TimberMaster Moisture Meter features eight calibration scales, enabling the user to take accurate moisture measurements in 150 wood species from around the world.

Simple Operation

Moisture measurements are commonly taken using the integral pin electrodes. The appropriate wood calibration scale can be selected to ensure the accurate measurements are taken.

Temperature Compensation

If the timber being measured is significantly above or below 20°C the TimberMaster Moisture Meter should be used in conjunction with the optional temperature probe. When the probe is connected to the instrument the measured moisture value is automatically corrected for the effect of temperature.

Hammer Electrode

A slide-hammer electrode can be used with the Protimeter TimberMaster to measure sub-surface moisture levels (to a depth of 30mm) irrespective of surface moisture levels.
