How Does The MMD4E Moisture Meter Work?
The MMD4E is a pin-type moisture meter. This means the meter works by using the principle of electrical resistance. A material, such as wood or other hygroscopic materials, acts as part of a circuit when the two pins of the meter are driven in to the material. The electrical current the meter measures when there is more or less moisture present allows the meter to measure moisture in a way that gives you information you can use for your inspection or project. The MMD4E can help you determine if there has been water damage to wood, drywall, and other materials, even if you cannot see evidence of past or present moisture.
