Wagner Orion 940 Pinless Wood Moisture Meter
IntelliSense technology backed with a 7-year warranty
The Wagner Orion 940 is a dual depth pinless wood moisture meter with data collection and onboard storage. The Wagner 940 dual depth moisture meter takes accurate moisture readings for two different depths in wood or other materials. In the shallow mode, the Orion 940 will read the moisture content from the surface level down to ¼ in.; in the deep depth mode, the meter uses IntelliSense Technology to disregard the surface moisture and read deeper moisture content down to ¾ in. The Orion 940 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 content readings are accurate. The Wagner Orion 940 moisture meter data collection and storage capabilities are important for quality control and home or property restoration applications.

The Orion 940 wood moisture meter has manual and automatic data collection with onboard storage and recall capabilities. When the data collection mode is activated, you will have the ability to store and review up to 100 readings and get the maximum, minimum, and average analysis of all stored readings. Moisture readings can vary, so this information can be valuable for quality control applications where a wide variety of data points are needed for reference.
The Wagner Meters Orion 940 wood moisture meter features superior accuracy, versatility, and ruggedness for moisture measurements both on the surface and deep into the wood. In the shallow depth mode, the 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.
The proper moisture content of wood is essential to building inspectors and those in the flooring and wood industry to produce the highest quality finished product. Wood that is too dry or has excess moisture can cause serious problems such as splitting, cracking, swelling, or warping. In the deep scan mode, the Orion 940 moisture meter identifies the moisture content of different species of woods as well as plywood, engineered wood, and MDF to avoid these problems from occurring.
A truly unique feature of the Wagner 940 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 back to factory standards 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 940 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 pad to quickly scan a large area of wood in less time, 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 940 pinless 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 940 wood moisture meter is essentially unaffected by the temperature of the wood or the environment. The 940 moisture meter sensing technology does not need correction or adjustment to account for the wood's temperature.
The Orion 940 Data Collection Pinless 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.
