Tramex ME5 Moisture Encounter Meter
The Tramex Moisture Encounter ME5 is a dual–depth, non-invasive, analog moisture meter for instant moisture content and evaluation for 5 ranges of sensitivity including deep depth penetration of up to 1.25”. The ME5 moisture meter is essential for floor contractors, water restoration specialist, monitoring indoor air quality pest control and other building specialist to prevent moisture related problems.

- Shallow signal penetration of up to 0.40"
- Ideal for testing moisture conditions in different materials
- Measuring range of wood moisture 5 to 30%
- Comparative scale of 0-100 for other materials
- Hold button to "freeze" a reading
- Audible signal
- Readings will be sent to Tramex App on mobile device via Bluetooth
- Optional Extension Bracket with a selfie stick
The new Tramex ME5 is the updated and improved version of the world’s best non-invasive moisture meter MEP with the same repeatability of readings and largest sample size. The ME5 moisture meter now includes dual depth functionality, extension bracket for use with a selfie stick, Bluetooth connection, improved sensor pads, and a rugged ergonomic design.
Water damage and the affects it can have on flooring, drywall, wood, roofs, siding and many other materials can be extremely damaging to a building and its occupant’s health if not properly diagnosed and repaired. The contractor by using the Tramex ME5 can quickly and easily evaluate moisture content and the extent of damage so it can be repaired.
The dual depth penetration on the ME5 ranges from shallow depth of up to 0.40” (10mm) to a deep depth penetration of 1.25” (30mm). The Dual-Depth penetration allows for the comparative of surface and core moisture and eliminating of substrate influence on the testing of coverings. The meter has 5 ranges of sensitivity: Wood & Timber, Shallow Depth, Drywall & Roofing, Plaster & Tile, and Masonry facilitating the proper testing in and through a wide range of materials in the building envelope.
The moisture content (MC%) of wood products is indicated on the upper scale (5-30). The lower scale (0-100) is a comparative scale and may be used for recording and comparing moisture condition in materials other than wood.
The Tramex Moisture Encounter is helpful in locating moisture related problems within and behind a variety of building materials in the building envelope, mapping the extent of moisture damage caused to buildings, and monitoring progressive drying conditions in the drying process of building materials and surfaces.
The ME5 moisture meter detects and evaluates moisture conditions within various building materials by non-invasively measuring the electrical impedance. A low frequency electronic signal is transmitted into the material through the electrodes in the base of the instrument. The strength of this signal varies in proportion to the amount of moisture in the material under test. The ME5 determines the strength of the current and converts this to a moisture content value which is automatically display on the large clear analog dial.
Moisture readings will be sent via Bluetooth to the Tramex App on your mobile device when you press the Bluetooth button on the ME5.
