Handheld moisture meter FMD6

Unique features are the available calibration lines of wood species and building materials as well as the function to add user calibration lines.

The FMD6 is the perfect instrument for the professional who wants to measure, store and register moisture measurements of various wood species and construction materials, for the benefit of quality control.

The FMD6 moisture meter is approved by the FMPA (MPA, Otto Graph Institut) for measuring the moisture content in glue laminated wood products

FMD6 measures the moisture content with a probe which is placed in or onto the material to be measured.

The FMD6 has a memory for measuring reports. Each report includes the data of the measured material as well as a statistical survey and a reliability interval. Stored values can be printed or processed with a personal computer using the FMD-Print program.
