Extech MO100 Moisture Meter
The Extech Moisture Meter is a convenient pocket size meter with adjustable multi-position pins for wood and building materials.
- Moisture content displayed on a relative scale
- Data hold to freeze reading on display
- °C/°F switchable
|Usually ships in 1-2 weeks|
The Extech Moisture Meter has a unique dual LCD that simultaneously displays wall moisture and air temperature. The air temperature readings are °C/°F switchable and the moisture content of the sample is displayed on a relative scale. The multi-position pins with safety storage of replaceable pins makes it a convenient size for storage. The meter is easy to operate with selectable side switches for OFF, test, and calibrate. The calibration is also adjustable for repeatability, and the data hold function freezes readings on the display for analysis.

In The News
Each year in Germany, as many as 450,000 living fish undergo live animal experiments to test how fish-friendly hydroelectric power plants in the country are. The idea is to discover how readily the fish can move through hydroelectric turbine installations in order to ultimately reduce mortality rates.
Of course, subjecting live fish to a potentially deadly test to save others is a bitter irony. And it's one that a team of scientists from the RETERO research project hopes to eventually mitigate with a robotic fish for testing.
EM corresponded with Olivier Cleynen and Stefan Hoerner from the University of Magdeburg about the complex flow conditions that set the parameters for the project.Read More
News stories about dogs getting sick from harmful algal blooms (HABs) in lakes have caused worry among members of the public this summer more than once. But Regional Science Consortium (RSC) Executive Director Dr. Jeanette Schnars and a dedicated team are bringing awareness about HABs to the public with the Mobile HAB Lab.
“We just launched the HAB Citizen Scientists program this year,” explains Dr. Schnars. “It helps us work with people, especially people who spend time at marinas frequently, that are out there all season long.”
The season for boaters at Presque Isle, where RSC is located, starts in mid-May and usually continues through the beginning or middle of October.Read More
In the battle against harmful algal blooms (HABs), time is important . The need for laboratory equipment and testing is a serious challenge for water managers. This issue caught the eye of Qingshan Wei , an assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at North Carolina State University .
“Our research group is interested in developing low-cost sensors,” Wei told EM . “Recently we have been developing sensors for environmental monitoring, and cyanotoxins came to our attention .”
Cyanobacteria, which generate HABs, are becoming a challenge across the US . They are a very serious problem in North Carolina, in part due to the weather.Read More
