This meter estimates the moisture content of the materials measuring their electrical resistance through two electrodes that must be stuck into the material. It automatically compensates the measures on basis of different materials (wood, building materials, paper, leather) and their temperature (wood only). The temperature of the material can be manually set by the operator or measured directly by the instrument by its internal sensor or the external RT/T sensor (optional). LG43 is also suitable to measure non-conditioned/seasoned timber or to estimate the distribution of the moisture across the material; the special measuring circuit assures an optimum stability even in case of high humidity contents.
Optional accessories are available to measure the moisture of sawdust or to measure the climate inside kiln dryers, which can be also displayed in EMC format (timber Equilibrium Moisture Content).
A new series of accessories has been specially developed to measure the relative humidity of concrete floor slabs according to ASTM F2170 standard, making LG43 a «must to have» instrument for all the Parquetry Layers.
