FIRST ON MARKET WITH EXTRA-SHARP OLED DISPLAY
The new Precision Multi-Species Wood Moisture Meter (MMD8P) from General Tools & Instruments (General®) offers advanced features to benefit professional and DIY woodworkers, cabinet and furniture makers, carpenters, builders and remodelers. The MMD8P is ideal for measuring the moisture content of 48 species of wood and offers temperature compensation. It is designed for use in lumber selection and purchasing as well as in the shop before cutting, sealing, treating or joining, and before painting or wallpapering. Plus, it’s the first moisture meter on the market with an OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) display, which provides extraordinary contrast and clarity, especially in outdoor lighting conditions.
Unlike other meters that can measure the moisture content of specific wood species, the MMD8P actually displays the species name of the wood being measured, making it far more convenient than models that display only a code number requiring reference to a manual. The MMD8P also enables users to compensate moisture measurements for the effect of ambient temperature (e.g., taking lumber from outdoors to indoors, from kiln to outdoors), which greatly improves the accuracy of readings.
The MMD8P can measure and display ambient temperature and relative humidity (RH) alongside the moisture level measurement. What’s more, it allows for storing and recalling up to 100 measurement records including moisture level, wood species name, ambient temperature, relative humidity and any temperature compensation applied. The MMD8P can display moisture measurements via an analog bar- graph screen instead of a digital moisture level percentage, and its pin cover doubles as a calibration checker. You can see General’s new Precision Multi-Species Wood Moisture Meter (MMD8P) at Booth 5972 at IWF 2014, August 20-23 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
