PCE-HGP Multifunction Moisture Tester for Wood
Uses penetrating pins to measure moisture content of wood and other materials /
Also measures air relative humidity (RH) and temperature and calculates dew point temperature

PCE-HGP is a multifunction moisture tester for wood that uses penetrating pins to measure the moisture content of wood and other construction or building materials. PCE-HGP also measures the relative humidity (RH) and ambient temperature and calculates the dew point temperature of the air.

A table of exotic wood type coefficient values is provided in the user manual to allow for proper calculation. The table lists coefficient values for exotic wood types including but not limited to Gonzales Alves, Pine, Brazilian-Rosewood, Chipboard, Cedar, Dogwood, European Aspen, Elm, Oak, Juniper, Maple, Ash, Quebracho Blanco and Colorado, Sandalwood, Mahagony, Olive, Umbrella, Pear, Persimmon, African Walnut, Teak, Willow and more.
