Eliminate the guesswork when finding hidden moisture - with the FLIR MR176 imaging moisure meter, finding moisture is easier than ever before.

Equipped with a thermal sensor, the MR176 allows surveyors to visualise moisture damage as cold temperature spots, allowing users to hone in on a suspicious area before further testing is carried out. The system uses similar technology to that of FLIR thermal cameras, with 80 x 60 pixel resolution and constant display of temperatures across an area.

With this technology, you can fully customise readings to your preference, selecting measurements you need. You can display moisture, temperature, relative humidity, dew point, vapour pressure and mixing ratio on the MR176, complete with your choice of colour palette (ice, iron, rainbow and grey).

At the touch of a button, the image displayed on the screen can be saved, complete with measurement data. After measuring, these images can be downloaded into FLIR's free software, FLIR Tools, to create professional reports and carry out further analysis.

Once you've located the moisture patch, you can use either the FLIR MR176's non-contact pinless mode to gain a reading of moisture below the surface, or gain an even more accurate result of moisture content by inserting the included pin probe directly into the material you're looking at.

For more precise targeting, the MR176 comes equipped with a bright laser pointer. It also has a field-replaceable humidity and temperature sensor, ensuring you can keep working for longer.

FLIR MR176 Imaging Moisture Meter Key Features

  • Visually identify moisture with infrared guided measurement (IGM)
  • 80 x 60, 4,800 pixel Lepton thermal imager visually displays moisture as cold temperature spots
  • Customise thermal images - select what measurements you need (moisture, temperature, relative humidity, dew point, vapour pressure and mixing ratio)
  • Selectable colour palettes: iron, rainbow, ice and greyscale
  • Lock-image setting prevents extreme hot/cold temperature from interfering with results
  • Laser and crosshair pointer to easily reference the exact location of moisture issues
  • Field-replaceable temperature and relative humidity sensor
  • Progessive Environmental Stability Indicator removes response time error when you move through a site to different measurement locations
  • Use the integrated pinless moisture measurement mode for fast detection of moisture levels
  • Supplied with external pin moisture probe for measurements below the surface of a material
  • Rugged, portable design with intuitive menu system
  • Capture and transfer images to PC and interact with them using FLIR Tools software
  • USB cable included for image transfer
