Micro Measure Ltd. Moisture Meter for Wood

We have terminated the production and the selling of model HS-100.

Needleless, touch-type

Simply place the device on the object to be measured and the moisture value is displayed.

Warpage proof

The wood to be tested may have some warpage, which the sensor of HS- 100 protruding from the body is capable of measuring.

34mm spacing between sensors enables measurement for deep inside

Used frequency for the HS-100 is 20MHz while that for similar products from competitors is 0.5MHz.
While other products have approx.
6mm spacing between sensors, The HS-100 has 34mm spacing, which enables the high-frequency wave to penetrate inside and to measure the moisture content of deep part.
To avoid the sensitive sensor from being affected by human hand, The HS-100 has the tall body.

Measuring in a wide range

The HS-100 can correct at the range of 10-40mm thickness , and of 100-990kg/cm3 or 0.10-1.00g/cm3 density.
It can measure the moisture content from 3 to 100%.

Temperature correction function

An internal thermometer can correct temperature automatically (manual setting also available).

Moisture upper limit (alarm) function

When moisture exceeds the predetermined upper limit, an alarm triggers with buzzer sound and red LED blink.

Meet the strict Japanese requirements

The HS-100 has passed the strict screenings in Japan where there are a lot of wooden houses.
The HS-100 has been accredited as a quality water content meter by the Japan Housing and Wood Technology Center's performance criteria of water content meters used for softwood lumbers(Accreditation No. 1-15-001).
