The Tramex Concrete Moisture Encounter 5 (CME5) is a non-destructive analog moisture meter for concrete floors and slabs providing instant and precise quantitative measurement of moisture content using Gravimetric testing as a baseline. The CME5 also provides comparative readings of gypsum floor screeds as well as comparative readings of concrete as per ASTM F2659.
The Concrete Moisture Encounter detects and evaluates the moisture conditions within the slab or screed by non-destructively measuring the electrical impedance. A low frequency electronic signal is transmitted into the material under test via the electrodes in the base of the instrument. The strength of this signal varies in proportion to the amount of moisture present in the material. The Concrete Moisture Encounter determines the strength of the current and converts this to a moisture content value for concrete slabs and a comparative value for other cementitious floor screeds, displayed on a large clear analog dial.
To carry out tests simply brush any dust from a smooth area of concrete and also from the electrodes, switch on the Concrete Moisture Encounter and place it firmly onto the surface, fully compressing the spring-loaded, signal-enhancing contacts on the base. Read the moisture content from the clear analogue dial. The Concrete Moisture Encounter is calibrated to give percentage moisture content readings on clean, bare dust free concrete floor slabs, with a depth of penetration of approx. ¾" (20 mm). Readings taken on concrete slabs through paint, coatings, adhesives or other materials on the surface should be regarded as qualitative or comparative and not quantitative.
The Tramex Feedback DataLogger and App have been designed and developed by Tramex for professionals who depend on accurate, reliable readings using the very best, state of the art technology. The Feedback DataLogger and App log up to 100,000 data point entries for relative humidity, temperature, dew point and grains per pound, transmitted wirelessly via Bluetooth BLE technology to your mobile device. On the App you can visualise Live Readings, Thermal Conditions and Psychrometric Charts as well as creating and exporting spreadsheets, charts and reports. The Tramex Feedback DataLogger requires the Tramex Feedback Data Logger App and a compatible iOS or Android mobile device.
The Concrete Moisture Encounter X5 (CMEX5), is The Digital Multi Moisture Meter for Concrete designed and built by Tramex Meters for the specific needs of many industries including the Flooring, Water Damage Restoration, Inspection, Surveying and Indoor Air Quality industries. Bluetooth connection allows for continual development and integration of apps and reporting to accompanying IOS & Android App.
