The BD-2100 meter offers three separate scales: wood, nonwood, and drywall. Built-in colored LED (green/yellow/red) gives you a quick visual indication of where the reading is within each given scale. The wood scale measure moisture in materials such as flooring, studs, joists, and exterior sheathing over the range of 6 to 40%; the nonwood (reference) scale provides comparative readings in materials such as concrete, plaster and insulation; and drywall scale measures actual moisture content within drywall. This easy-to-use meter also features an audible out of range alarm, internal calibration check, 100 data point memory, and average/maximum readings.

The Delmhorst BD-2100 delivers accurate moisture readings, so you can sign off on your inspection with confidence that the site is dry. With its range of capabilities, the meter can be relied upon in a broad array of settings, home inspections to restoration jobs. And with three scales, the meter can be used on wood, drywall, and a variety of other non-wood building materials.
Wood Scale for Flooring and Building Materials
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).
Gypsum Scale for Drywall
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.
Reference Scale for Concrete, Plaster, and Insulation
The Delmhorst BD-2100's reference scale expands your moisture-reading capabilities, allowing you to check moisture levels in non-wood materials such as concrete, plaster, and insulation--a particularly handy feature for restoration projects. This scale reads from 0 to 100 on a relative basis to accommodate a variety of non-wood materials.
Set-Point Alert Lets You Preset Moisture Conditions
One of the handiest features of the Delmhorst BD-2100 is its set-point alert function, which allows you to preselect an MC (moisture condition). Once the MC is reached, the set-point alerts you with a buzzing sound, giving you the precision you need.
Digital Readout Screen Displays Results Quickly and Accurately
This meter works quickly to display accurate results on its clear, easy-to-read digital screen, so you can view the readings with ease. The meter averages up to 99 accumulated readings, giving you a big-picture view of your current job.
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.
Plus, the Delmhorst BD-2100 is built with a special connector for an external electrode, such as the Delmhorst 26-ES (sold separately), which allows you to take surface and core moisture content readings to a maximum depth of 1-1/16 inch.
The Delmhorst BD-2100 is backed by a one-year warranty.
