Wagner Orion 920 Wood Moisture Meter
The Wagner Meter Orion 920 is a shallow depth pinless wood moisture meter for measuring moisture in wood and other building materials. The Wagner 920 moisture meter takes accurate moisture readings in wood or other materials from the surface down to .25” in depth. The Orion 920 shallow depth moisture meter is ideal for applications where accurate moisture readings from thin wood pieces or coatings are critical for success. The Orion 920 moisture meter also comes with an individually paired On-Demand Calibrator to easily calibrate your meter anytime and anyplace, giving you confidence that the moisture measurement readings are accurate.
- Shallow Depth pinless moisture reading
- Relative scale for testing non-wood material (0-100)
- MC measurement range for wood 4.0% to 32.0%
- Programmable settings for a wide range of softwood and hardwood species
- Large moisture measurement sensor area
- Reading can be “frozen” on display screen
- User-programmed audible alarm
- Can be field calibrated with included On-Demand Calibrator
- Digital display
The Wagner Orion 920 shallow moisture meter features superior accuracy, versatility, and ruggedness for moisture measurement (1/4” deep). A shallow depth moisture meter is perfect for reading moisture content in thin samples such as wood flooring or to check the dryness of waterborne coats before applying the next coat of finish.
A truly unique feature of the Wagner 920 moisture meter is the true-in-field calibration. Every meter comes with an individually paired On-Demand-Calibrator allowing you to easily calibrate your meter anytime, ensuring that you will have accurate moisture measurements. A NIST-traceable version, with a certification of calibration, can also be purchased.
Non-damaging electromagnetic wave technology is used by the Orion 920 to measure the moisture content of wood and other materials. The actual sensing plate on the back is 2.0” by 2.5” to provide a relatively large area to take a reading, giving you a far better representation of the true moisture content of your wood.
Using the up and down arrows on the Orion moisture meter, it is easy to adjust for different wood species. The range of settings accommodates practically any softwood or hardwood species in the world. The Wagner 920 moisture meter can also be configured to measure some non-solid products such as plywood, OSB, and MDF. The meter also has species setting for many bamboo flooring products.
The Wagner Orion 920 wood moisture meter is essentially unaffected by the temperature of the wood or the environment. The 920 moisture meter sensing technology does not need correction or adjustment to account for the wood's temperature.
The 920 moisture meter features a relative moisture measurement mode for taking relative moisture conditions in non-wood building material and engineered wood flooring. In this mode, your meter will be using a relative measurement scale (0-100) for measuring non-wood-based materials.
The ON/HOLD button allows you to “freeze” the moisture measurement reading, helpful in those hard-to-see areas. Also, the moisture meter includes a user-programmed, audible alarm to alert you to high moisture content levels. The protective rubber boot makes it easy to hold while helping to avoid damage if dropped.
