The Wagner MMI1100 moisture meter is one of the most accurate moisture testing instruments in the world. It employs electromagnetic wave technology and can cover a large cross sectional area every time it takes a reading. Pin moisture meters only cover a small area when they test and a certain depth depending upon the model of meter. A non intrusive moisture meter such as this model will actually read in the wood as well as on the wood.

Design wise it is difficult to find a more user friendly moisture meter. It will fit comfortably in the pocket and is extremely accurate. Floor installers, cabinet makers and contractors are just a few who favour this Wagner MMI1100. Can be used for readings on exotic species, solid and laminated wood products as well as many other materials. An extremely versatile meter that is very rarely affected by wood temperature or surface moisture. Priced up at $440 - $500. Not cheap but well worth the expense for any professional.

Using The Wagner MMI1100 Moisture Meter

To turn the moisture meter on simply press the on/hold button momentarily and gently release and enter the measurement code. When the meter is set in the measurement mode the on/hold button can be used to freeze a reading that has been made and keep that reading on display until you clear it. A nice feature particularly if you are taking moisture readings in difficult places to get to.This meter also has an auto shut off feature.

The species button on the MM11100 can be used to select the particular species of wood you wish to take a moisture reading from. It comes in a factory default setting but you can change this if you so wish. Already installed in this meter is the gravity settings of wood species. If you are always working with just a few select species of wood there is an overlay on the front of the meter where you can write all the appropriate setting values of those specific wood species. Do so in pencil and not a permanent marker as one day you may wish to add or take away some setting values.

To take a measurement with the Wagner MMI1100 Moisture Meter always ensure that the specific gravity setting is the correct one for the species of wood you are testing. When placing the meter on the wood do so firmly making sure that the sensor plate has a good contact with the wood surface. If you notice that there is moisture or water on the surface of the wood, you need to wipe away the excess and allow the wood to dry for a couple of minutes before testing. Once a reading has been taken it is a good idea to turn the wood over and take another reading from the opposite side, if this is possible of course.

Erroneous high readings can occur if the timber to be tested is thinner than the scan depth of the meter. To counter this an air gap has to be created underneath the wood. An air gap of about an inch is suitable. When testing wood ensure that there is nothing under the wood, in particular no metal.

The Wagner MMI1100 has an auto shut down feature which will kick in after 1 minute if the meter has not been used or any buttons pressed. To maintain your moisture meter always store it properly. You need to avoid storage places that are very hot or very cold and always store the meter in it’s carry case.

You meter will have been calibrated at the manufacturing factory and not require re-calibration again. If you do need a calibration adjustment then the meter has to be returned to Wagner to be carried out properly.
