The X5 detects and evaluates the moisture conditions within the slab or screed by non-destructively measuring the electrical impedance.
A low frequency electronic signal is transmitted into the material under test via the electrodes in the base of the instrument.
The strength of this signal varies in proportion to the amount of moisture present in the material.
The X5 determines the strength of the current and converts this to a moisture content value for concrete slabs and a comparative value for other cementitious floor screeds, displayed on a large clear digital dial.
Instant and precise readings to a depth of approximately 20mm (3⁄4") into the concrete slab, for reproducible and reliable results.
The built-in Hygrometer probe provides Ambient Relative Humidity (%RH) readings, temperature, dew-point temperature and Humidity Ratio.
Pin-probe mode for 5% to 30% Moisture Content measurement in Wood; 7 -100 comparative (WME), using Pin-type probe attachments. (optional)
Attaches to a reusable relative humidity Hygro-i2 ® probe for in situ and hood testing of concrete per BS 8201, 8203, 5325 and ASTM F2170. (optional)
Airspace conditions of Relative Humidity, Temperature, Dew-point and Humidity Ratio (using optional RH probes)
Moisture readings and scale are displayed on a large, clear easy-to-read clear digital display: 2.3" x 1.4" (58mm x 35mm).
Front lit display allows the CMEX5 concrete moisture meter's display to be easily read in poor light conditions.
Bluetooth connection to accompanying IOS & Android App allowing for continual development and integration of apps and reporting.
Hold Function which enables the user to “freeze” the reading.
