The Dual Mode Pin and Non-Invasive Moisture Meter
The NEW Surveymaster is easier to use and gives more information than its predecessor. It incorporates two modes of operation - Search and Measure - that enable the user to distinguish surface moisture from sub-surface moisture, essential information when trying to establish the extent and cause of a dampness problem.
Moisture level values are shown on a digital display along side a scale of colour coded lights that indicate the moisture condition of the material. This combined presentation of moisture measurement helps the user to map the extent of problems and monitor changes in condition precisely and reliably.
Whilst in the measure mode the meter can be used with the following accessories:
- A two-pin head-and-lead for awkward corners and under work surfaces.
- A set of ‘Deep Wall Probes’ that are insulated but for their tips providing quantitative WME readings at depth, regardless of surface dampness and surface contamination by salts.
- An optional Hammer Electrode (PR5000) for quick and easy measurement at depth of the moisture content of timber.

What is the Wood Moisture Equivalent (WME) scale as used on Protimeter moisture meters?
Protimeter moisture meters are calibrated for wood but are also suitable for measuring moisture levels in other materials. They are highly versatile tools for assessing the moisture condition of a wide range of non-conductive materials.
In wood, the instruments measure the material’s actual percent moisture content (%H2O). When testing material other than wood, the meters measure the wood moisture equivalent (WME) value of the material. WME is the moisture level that would be attained by a piece of wood in equilibrium with the material being tested. As the critical moisture levels for wood are known, WME measurements enable the moisture meter user to establish if materials are in a safe air dry, borderline or damp condition.
