Extech Instruments announced the launch of the versatile MO300, a Bluetooth-enabled pinless moisture meter with built-in psychrometer and IR thermometer. Restoration professionals can place the new meter at the point-of-measurement while easily viewing readings remotely on an Android phone or tablet using Extech’s ExView™ MO300 app up to 10m or 30 feet away.
“Remote monitoring of MO300 readings on an Android phone or tablet gives restoration pros advantages that were previously unavailable,” says Mike Fox, General Manager at Extech Instruments. Fox adds, “Now, it’s easy to be anywhere on a typical jobsite and view the progress of a dryout with continuous moisture meter readings. The app is also useful for showing readings to customers while the meter remains in place.”
With memory capability to store up to 20 readings or stream continuous readings via the app, the new MO300 is an innovative 8-in-1 moisture meter that combines several essential moisture-detecting functions with a built-in non-contact infrared thermometer. The MO300 is optimized for mold and moisture remediation and restoration technicians, construction and building contractors, building inspectors, as well as concrete and woodworking professionals.
The meter’s pinless design permits quick readings of wood and building materials without damaging the surface. Easy to use, the compact meter measures moisture to 0.75” (19mm) below the surface. By also providing humidity, air temperature, relative humidity, grains per pound (GPP) or grams per kg, dew point, and vapor pressure, the versatile meter delivers a "big picture" analysis. Programmable high/low moisture and humidity alarms ensure materials are within required specifications.
The MO300 also includes a pin probe for when contact readings are needed. Using a differential temperature calculation of infrared temperature and dew point readings, a technician can identify cold spots on walls that are at risk of condensation. The easy-to-read dual-reading display gives simultaneous access to moisture percentage and air temperature, IR surface temperature, or humidity. A digital bargraph display is useful for simulating relative, analog readings.
The MO300 multifunction moisture meter comes with a pin moisture probe (MO290-P) with 3ft (0.9m) cable, 9V battery and pouch case. To learn more about the MO300, visit www.extech.com/mo300.
