The humidity detector of wood FMW-B determines moisture content by means of the capacitive method. In the humidity detector FMW-B an electromagnetic field quickly determines capacitance of wood. The moisture content in the wood is internally determined by means of a gross density.
The Humidity detector FMW-B has three important advantages:
          -  It measures moisture content without damaging wood when it is placed on it.
          -  Measurement results are quickly displayed.
          -  Because of the high accuracy of humidity values a drying test will not be needed (real absolute humidity is measured / the Humidity detector FMW-B meets with all the European standards EN 13183-1, EN 13183-2, EN 13556)
This humidity detector is very easy to use as well as very robust. The humidity detector FMW-B is an irreplaceable tool for both wood manufacturing and purchasing as well as for any professional sector where wood is considered a raw material. It is also capable of measuring a

    Attention: All the characteristic curves of the wood types of this column and the adjoining one are stored inside the humidity detector FMW-B. They can be displayed by introducing the corresponding gross densities. A chart with all the materials and wood types will be included in the delivery.

    To take into account:
    When measuring moisture content in wood, the result will be more accurate on smooth surfaces. Moreover, the measuring value will grow on chips or knots. On the contrary, if measurements are taken on breaks, the humidity value will be lower in relation to the real humidity value (absolute humidity).
    In both cases, you should measure near the area which is going to be measured.
