meter provides a complete, safe method for detecting excess moisture in
GRP and wooden boats. Three scales of sensitivity allow moisture detection
in salt or fresh water.
How it works:
- The Skipper
moisture meter detects moisture in wood or GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic)
by measuring the resistance between two low frequency AC signals transmitted
from the soft rubber electrodes on the base of the instrument.
- Because salt water
is more conductive than fresh water, the Skipper
is fitted with different ranges of sensitivity to allow testing of wood
or GRP in either fresh or salt water environments.
- Simply select the
Scale 1: Moisture in wood in fresh water or GRP in saltwater
Scale 2: Moisture in GRP in freshwater
Scale 3: Moisture in wood in saltwater
method: non-destructive signal resistance
frequency: 5-25 KHZ depending on range used.
