Tramex ME5 Moisture Encounter Moisture Meter




The Tramex Moisture Encounter - ME5 is a Dual-depth, non-destructive, instant moisture meter for measuring and evaluating moisture content wood, plaster, drywall, brick, roofing. The ME5 is accurate and precise, featuring Deep-Depth penetration up to 1¼" (30mm) and Shallow-Depth penetration up to ⅜” (10mm). The 5 Ranges of sensitivity: Wood & Timber / Shallow Depth / Drywall & Roofing / Plaster & Tile / Masonry, make the Moisture Encounter 5 ideal for testing in, through and behind a wide range of building materials. Bluetooth connectivity to the Tramex Meters App allows for visualization of readings and data reporting to mobile devices, to GeoTag test results, create, save and share photos, reports and charts.

  • 5 Ranges of sensitivity: Wood & Timber / Shallow Depth / Drywall & Roofing / Plaster & Tile / Masonry
  • Dual-Depth penetration allows for comparative of surface and core moisture and elimination of substrate influence on the testing of coverings.
  • Deep signal penetration, up to 1 1⁄4″ (30mm) in wood and drywall, detects elevated moisture through most covering materials without having to damage or puncture the materials being tested.
  • Shallow Depth scale is designed to have a field penetration of up to 10mm (0.4 inches).
  • Wide range of readings from 5% to 30% on Wood Scale and 0 to 100 on a comparative scale for all other materials.
  • Detects moisture through paint, wallpaper, drywall, ceramic tiles, floor coverings, wood, ceiling tiles, roofing membranes, and asphalt composition shingles.
  • 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, useful when taking readings where the meter face may not be visible.
