The Model DC-2000 is a 9V battery operated professional portable moisture meter for wood. This easy-to-operate instrument can be used at home or in factories, mills, and yards by anyone regardless of their technical skill.

This meter has three different wood species settings for increased accuracy, making this the unit of choice. The pocket-sized and compact DC-2000 is light weight, making the instrument completely portable. The DC-2000 is equipped with auto-ranging, with no need for moisture range selection. A Species Selector Switch is a feature of this premium instrument that provides better accuracy when testing a wide range of wood types. Except for certain variations in the temperature or species of wood, the dial readings are accurate without further correction. In addition, temperature correction tables and calibration charts for 36 specific wood species are provided for easy reference and use.

The DC-2000 has two built-in 7/16" needles (need longer needles) and determines the moisture content by measuring the electrical resistance between the needles that are driven into the wood. The instrument reads the wettest portion of the wood rather than averaging the moisture content which, might otherwise be misleading. Several tests can be taken along a board in less than a minute to obtain not only moisture content, but also to disclose any gradients or wet streaks.

In addition to its accuracy and versatility, the DC-2000 can be used to estimate the shrinkage of wood and to check for gradient distribution of moisture.

Need an Instrument for hard woods with an Impact Hammer style electrode.

You will know when wood is subject to rot, or when walls or wood surfaces are dry enough for painting. A feature of the sensitivity of the DC-2000 is its application to the tracing of water leaks in walls and roofs.
