The testo 606-1 moisture meter doesn`t fail to impress with a variety of quality features: easy to use, precise and absolutely reliable measurements, suitable for a wide range of different types of wood and building materials.

The two ram electrodes are pushed firmly into the wood or building material where they measure the moisture content as a percentage based on the dry mass (dry weight).

The hold function freezes the last measurement while the backlit display ensures that the meter can be used in all lighting conditions. A slip-on protective cap and belt bag ensure that the moisture meter is stored safely and a hand strap helps prevent the meter from accidentally being dropped.
