Electrodes

All electrodes, except the 2-E and 26-ES have tapped handles. This feature allows you to attach a threaded extension pole –– great for checking moisture in high and hard to reach places.

26-ES

The 496 contact pins that come with the 26-ES penetrate 1 1/8” and have insulated shanks so that only the tips are exposed. The pins make contact only at their uncoated tips and provide much more accurate readings of moisture content at various levels of penetration. This feature is useful for a variety of different applications:

  • Flooring installers: Penetrate through flooring to plywood sub-floor, or concrete.
  • Dry kiln operators: Identify moisture gradients which helps to identify the drying pattern.
  • Furniture manufacturers and craftsmen: Easily check high density hardwood that short pins are unable to penetrate.

Also available as the 26-ED, which includes gauge to measure pin penetration depth.

Accessories
 
1849
An alternate to the 496 pin for the 26-ES, the 1849 is a 1 ½” insulated pin with 1/2" penetration. The 1849 is suitable for wood up to 2" thick.
2497/A-100
Uninsulated pin and retainer with 5/16" penetration. Standard on all meters with built-in pins and the 2-E and 4-E electrodes. Used on wood up to 6/4 (1 ½”), concrete and gypsum.
305RET-0021

Retainer used to hold contact pins in place. Used with #608 and #608/001. Available in packs of 4 as 305RET-0021/4.

496

496 contact pins are insulated except at the tips, and measure 2" overall with 1 1/8" penetration. Standard on the 26-ES, and can be used to check wood up to 5" thick.

608

The 608 insulated contact pins measure 4" overall, and penetrate 3 1/4". Standard on 21-E and 18-ES electrodes, and can be used on roofing, insulation, timber, poles, and EIFS. Also available in 7” length with 6” penetration as 608/001.

632

Retainer used to hold contact pins in place. Used with #496, #1849, and #A-111 pins. Available in packs of 4 as 632/4.

A-111

Another alternative to the 496, the A-111 is an uninsulated contact pin measures 1 7/16” and has 1/2" penetration. The A-111 is compatible with both the 26-ES and the 22-E, and its tapered point makes it easier to penetrate into hard surfaces. Can be used on wood up to 2" thick.

MCS-1

Moisture content standards are great for verifying that your Delmhorst moisture meter is in calibration. The MCS-1 can be used on any meter with a wood scale. With two electrical resistance values (12% and 22%) to test your meter against, you can be sure that your readings will stand up to the strictest standards of accuracy. The MCS-1 is also available with a letter of certification traceable to NIST.
