Moisture Sensors

A moisture sensor is an analog or digital device used to detect moisture content in materials and is an essential instrument used in many industries, from building inspection to woodworking to medical research.

The reliability and scale of readings vary by device, brand and type. Some moisture sensors use near-infrared or radio frequency technology to provide instant, non-contact moisture readings. High-quality sensors are capable of handling different kinds of varied material like different particle sizes and colors.

Color indicators on some moisture sensors are useful in determining if the material being tested is considered dry or if there is a possible issue with moisture. For instance, green may indicate that a test specimen is dry, yellow and red might indicate an unacceptably high level of moisture.
