The Tramex Meters App

The Tramex Meters App enables you to better visualise live readings and report data from all your Tramex Bluetooth devices.

It is compatible with the Tramex 5-series moisture meters: 

  • Moisture Encounter - ME5
  • Concrete Moisture Encounter - CME5 
  • Concrete Moisture Encounter X5 - CMEX5

and Tramex Feedback DataLoggers :

  • Feedback Datalogger DL-RHTA
  • Feedback Datalogger DL-RHTX

(Note: For logging with the Feedback Datalogger use the Tramex Feedback Datalogger App. The Tramex Meters App will soon be updated to include the logging feature.)

 

The Tramex Meters App is available for free download on the App Store and Google Play for phone and tablet devices. 

 

The New Tramex Concrete Moisture Encounter X5 - CMEX5

The Tramex Concrete Moisture Encounter X5 (CMEX5) is a non-destructive digital multi moisture meter for concrete floors and slabs providing instant and precise quantitative measurement of moisture content using Gravimetric testing as a baseline. The CMEX5 also provides Carbide Method equivalent readings for concrete and other cementitious substrates as well as comparative readings as per ASTM F2659. Bluetooth connection is available to the accompanying IOS & Android App allowing for continual development and integration of apps and reporting. Incorporating plug-in ports for the optional Hygro-i2® relative humidity probe testing per ASTM F2170 and heavy-duty pin-type wood probes, this moisture meter transforms into the ideal all-in-one instrument for the flooring professional.

Tramex Concrete Moisture Meters provide Quantitative Readings.

Andrew Rynhart, Tramex CEO, explains how the Tramex Concrete Moisture Encounter provides quantitative moisture content readings using Gravimetric Testing as a baseline.

How long does a concrete slab take to dry?
How long does a concrete slab take to dry?

For concrete and cementitious screeds to receive a floorcovering we know that the base must be suitably “dry enough”. This is to prevent damage to the flooring material and to ensure a proper bond with adhesives.

Are we paying enough attention to the procedure for F2170?
Are we paying enough attention to the procedure for F2170?

The F2170 procedure for RH testing of concrete floor slabs states that we should - Insert the hole liner to the bottom of the hole. Cap or seal the open end of the hole liner and any open gaps at the top of the liner per manufacturer’s instructions. Allow 24 hours to achieve moisture equilibrium within the hole before making relative humidity measurements.

Obtaining as much information about the roof as possible in advance is invaluable. A set of roof drawings or plans make moisture mapping much easier and a knowledge of the construction will make the job of calibration much faster.
