Material Moisture Instrument – Testo 616

Model No: Testo 616Part No: 0560 6160

Testo 616 compact sized instrument for moisture measurement, precise and non-destructive means of measuring the moisture content of wood and other building materials.

  1. Precise measurement of the material moisture in building materials and woods
  2. Equipped with 10 characterisitic curves
  3. Ergonomic shape for optimum contact pressure
  4. Hold, max. and min. functions
  5. Illuminated digital display


Testo 616, the compact sized instrument for moisture measurement aids in precise and non-destructive measurement of moisture content of wood and building materials and of monitoring the drying process after water damage. Inspect the moisture content as a weight percentage compared to the dry weight by simply selecting the characteristic curve and placing the meter’s measuring claw against the surface of the material. You can also save the reading to your meter by just pressing the relevant key.

Although the measuring claw only comes into contact with the surface, wall or flooring that is being measured, it is able to determine the moisture content of the wood or other material down to a depth of 5 cm.
