The meter has an easy to read, large dual display screen with a back light feature that can be used in dimly lit areas. It simultaneously displays percentage of moisture in wood or material being tested and air temperature, IR temperature, or humidity. Pinless moisture measurements can read to a depth of 0.75-inch below the surface. The non-contact IR thermometer has an 8:1 distance to spot ratio and a 0.95 fixed emissivity. The built-in humidity and temperature probe measures relative humidity, air temperature plus grains per pound (GPP), dew point (DP), and vapor pressure.
The MO295 can store/recall 20 readings in memory, and the meter features a fast analog bargraph for viewing moisture trends, programmable high/low moisture and humidity alarms, automatic calculation of differential temperature to determine condensation point, minimum/maximum function, data hold, and an Auto Power Off function.
