Works on Wood and Building Materials
The MMD4E can measure the moisture content of drywall, plaster and brick as well as wood. Separate algorithms for wood and building materials are built in to ensure an accurate reading each time.
With only three buttons, the MMD4E could not be easier to use. The top button acts as your material selector, switching between wood and building materials. A short press of the right button holds a reading, allowing you to view it for an extended period of time. This comes in handy when making measurements above your head, below your knees, or in the dark. A long press of the right button turns the audible beeper on and off.
Measurements are shown on a large LCD screen, with an easy-to-read dashboard of all your active functions. Note the battery charge and 'reading hold' icons at the upper right, the 'beeper on' icon at the lower left, and the building materials and high moisture (three droplets) icons at the upper left.
Moisture Range Icons
When you’re joining two pieces of wood, a comparative ballpark reading may be all you need. The MMD4E uses one, two and three droplets to indicate low, medium and high moisture levels. The table correlates the icons with the different ranges for wood and building materials.
