The meter's wood scale gauges moisture from 6 to 40 percent--measuring from dry conditions up to the fiber saturation point (about 24 to 30 percent). The large range means the meter can be used in high-humidity or low-humidity environments and on a variety of locations, such as wood studs, floor joists, subfloors, and EIFS (Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems).
The meter's gypsum scale is designed for use with gypsum board, which is also commonly known as drywall or plasterboard. Its broad moisture range of 0.2 to 50 percent covers a variety of gypsum types, letting you achieve ideal results on your next construction or inspection project.
Pin-Type Meter with Electrode Connector Delivers Superior Results
The Delmhorst BD-2100's pin-type meter uses two pins that penetrate wood and other building materials to a depth of 5/16 inch. Pin-type meters provide more accurate readings than surface meters because their tips come into direct contact with the material being measured. If you ever deal with materials that have been exposed to surface moisture, a pin meter is the best measurement tool because its readings are not skewed by this factor.
