The RH297 pinless moisture meter incorporates a built-in infrared thermometer and 20 point memory. Manually store/recall up to 20 labeled readings and monitor moisture in wood and other building materials with no surface damage with the pinless moisture sensor. Remote pin-type probe is also included which allows for contact moisture readings [0.9 m (3') cable length]. The RH297 has an easy-to-read, large dual display with automatic backlight feature and fast analog bargraph. Measure relative humidity and air temperature with built-in probe plus non-contact infrared temperature with built-in infrared design. Simultaneously displays moisture value of wood or material being tested, air temperature, infrared temperature, or relative humidity. Advanced functions provide grains per pound, dew point, vapor pressure calculations and programmable high/low moisture/humidity alarms. Features automatic calculation of differential temperature (IR-DP) to determine condensation point. The RH297 meter is shipped fully tested and calibrated, and with proper use, will provide years of reliable service.
