The Tramex Building Survey Inspection Tech Kit is a compact kit comprising of the Moisture Encounter MEX5 and a pin electrode and allows for both non-destructive and pin moisture content readings of drywall, wood, plaster, brick, ceramic tiles, resilient flooring, laminates and roofing and numerous building materials.

The Moisture Encounter MEX5 moisture meter measures moisture content in wood and drywall and provides comparative readings in a variety of building materials. It also features a built-in hygrometer for ambient conditions and psychrometric values, an Infrared Surface Thermometer as well as the hand-held probe for wood, drywall, and WME readings

Bluetooth connectivity to the Tramex Meters App allows for visualization of readings, moisture mapping and data reporting to mobile devices, to GeoTag test results, create, save and share photos, reports and charts, as well as see your meter screen on your phone when extending to hard to reach places.
