Protimeter MMS2 is the brand new 4-in-1 damp meter that has been specifically designed for measuring moisture levels in buildings and structures.
The Protimeter MMS2 can measure surface moisture, moisture below surfaces and can act as a hygrometer to measure ambient air humidity. The units integrated infra-red thermometer also enables the user easily measure the difference between dew point and surface temperature as well as a number of different psychometric parameters.If you are a building surveyor, a home inspector, architect, or simply drying a building after a flood, the Protimeter MMS2 is the perfect tool for you!Benefits
- Easy-to-use - easily conduct comprehensive building moisture diagnostics using this intuitive instrument.
- Save time with the rapid response hygrometer.
- No more need to carry around multiple additional accessories.
Measure Mode (Pin Mode)
- Pin moisture measurement
- Non-invasive, "pin less" moisture measurement
- Non-contact Infra Red surface temperature measurement
- Ambient relative humidity and temperature measurement
- Equilibrium humidity measurement - perfect for concrete floors
- Data logging functionality - record up to 8000 readings at the touch of a button
- Psychometric calculations
- Upgradeable firmware - download the latest enhancements and new features
- Large colour LCD display - makes it easy to see in low light conditions.
The Pin mode enables you to accurately measure the actual percent moisture content in wood or the Wood Moisture Equivalent (%WME) in a number of different building materials. This helps the operator to diagnose moisture intrusion and monitor drying out. Pin mode therefore gives the most reliable assessment of moisture conditions at the surface.
WME values between 6-99% are displayed numerically together with a colour-coded scale for easy interpretation. A green reading indicates air-dry, yellow means borderline and red means damp conditions.Search Mode (Non-Invasive Mode)
Search mode helps to detect the presence of sub-surface moisture, in relative terms to a nominal depth of ¾" (20mm) in a number of different building materials including: tiles, wood, drywall, plaster, masonry and concrete.
Search mode uses radio frequencies to help assess moisture conditions beneath the surface without causing any damage. Simply hold the unit flat to the surface being measured and a relative reading will be obtained. Search mode is not adversely affected by surface moisture.
Readings are displayed numerically together with a colour-coded scale for easy interpretation. A green reading indicates air-dry, yellow means borderline and red means damp conditions.Hygrometer Mode
Hygrometry mode helps you to easily measure buildings for adequate ventilation and to detect conditions that are conducive for mold and fungus growth. The MMS2 provides the user with: relative humidity measurements, dew point temperature, surface temperature, surface proximity to dew point (condensation), grains per pound and multiple psychometric calculations. Remote Surface Temperature Mode
The MMS2 uses an infra-red sensor to enable you to make non-contact surface temperature measurements. The unit features a laser pointer that indicates the position being measured.
The surface temperature and prevailing dew point temperature is displayed to the user, alongside the difference between the two. The user can then easily assess the level of condensation present, or the risk of condensation occurring.
With a distance to spot ratio of 12:1, this mode is ideal for users that want to measure the temperature of a ceiling without the need for a step ladder.Included with the Protimeter MMS2 moisture meter:
