The MMC205 moisture meter is the most basic version of the Wagner MMC range and comes at between $250 - $290 making it an ideal entry level moisture meter. But because it is the most basic model does not mean that it operates and functions to a lower standard. Quite the opposite in fact.

It is a non intrusive model which will not damage wood at all when taking a moisture reading. When using it the readings and results are given quickly and it is possible to scan a piece of timber, full width and length, in just a matter of seconds.

As with all Wagner meters it has the IntelliSense technology so any result will not be affected by surface moisture or the actual temperature of the timber it is testing. Designed for using with domestic wood applications you do not even need to adjust the meter’s moisture content readings for temperature. The digital display will give readings in whole numbers with 1% increments. A nice moisture meter for the DIY enthusiast or for anyone who works with wood on a small basis.

Using The Wagner MMC205 Moisture Meter



Turning the moisture meter on is done by pressing the on/hold button and gently releasing. Once a reading has been obtained, pressing the hold button will freeze the reading for you. After 60 seconds of no use or no button pushing the meter will turn itself off thanks to the energy saving auto shut off feature. Again and again this meter proves it’s worth in difficult to get to places for testing moisture content.


Before you take a measurement reading with the MMC205 you need to sure that you have set specific gravity setting correctly or you will get a wrong reading for your particular wood.


For taking a reading you need to ensure that the sensor plate of the meter has good contact with the testing subject. If there is any surface moisture present before testing, you need to wipe it away and allow the surface to dry for a short time.


For wood that is thinner than the scan depth of the meter you must create an air gap under the wood before testing. The air gap should be about 1 inch and there should be nothing under the wood, particularly no metal.

The moisture meter is an expensive product and quite sensitive so you need to store it correctly to keep it in tip top working condition. Never store it in extremely hot or extremely cold places and do always store it inside it’s case.


Your moisture meter will have been calibrated at the Wagner factory and not re-calibration again. However if problems or issues do occur and you need a calibration adjustment, then the meter must be returned to the Wagner factory to be re-calibrated properly.
