Tramex ME5 Moisture Encounter - Non-Invasive Moisture Meter

The Tramex Moisture Encounter ME5 is a Dual-Depth, non-destructive moisture meter for instant moisture measurement and evaluation. With Deep Depth penetration up to 30mm (1.25") and Shallow Depth penetration up to 10mm (0.40"). With 5 ranges of sensitivity: Wood & Timber / Shallow Depth / Drywall & Roofing / Plaster & Tile / Masonry. This makes the Moisture Encounter ideal for testing in (and through) a wide range of materials in the building envelope.


  • Non Destructive
  • Dual Depth
  • Wood %MC Reading Range: 5-30%
  • Comparative Reading Range: 0-100
  • Accompanying App
  • Extension Handle (available separately)

How it Works

The Moisture Encounter detects and evaluates moisture conditions within various building materials by non-destructively measuring the electrical impedance. A low frequency electronic signal is transmitted into the material via the electrodes in the base of the instrument. The strength of this signal varies in proportion to the amount of moisture in the material under test. The Moisture Encounter determines the strength of the current and converts this to a moisture content value, displaying it on a large clear analogue dial.


Used and trusted by generations of professionals worldwide for the purpose of:

  • Locating moisture-related problems within and behind a variety of building materials in the building envelope.
  • Mapping the extent of moisture damage caused to buildings.
  • Monitoring progressive drying conditions in the drying process of building materials and surfaces.
  • Dual-Depth penetration allows for comparative of surface and core moisture and elimination of substrate influence on the testing of coverings.
