Dew Point Meter with Infrared Surface Temperature Sensor

DeFelsko is pleased to announce the latest addition to the PosiTector DPM Dew Point Meter family. The PosiTector DPM IR includes the ambient temperature and humidity sensors from the PosiTector DPM Integral Probe plus an infrared surface temperature sensor. The infrared sensor doesn't require contact with the surface, making the inspection of large areas quick and easy. The 4:1 distance to spot ratio will average the temperature over a larger area making it ideal for quickly scanning large structures. 

Features

  • Measures and records environmental conditions including relative humidity, air temperature, surface temperature, dew point temperature, the difference between surface and dew point temperatures.
  • Non-contact surface temperature sensor
  • Measures hard to reach areas and moving parts 
  • 4:1 Distance to spot ratio (D:S), optimized for measuring large surfaces 
  • Pre-programmed and user adjustable emissivity options

PosiTector CMM IS

Concrete Moisture Meter - In Situ

DeFelsko is pleased to introduce the new PosiTector® CMM IS Concrete Moisture Meter - In Situ probes for measuring relative humidity and temperature in concrete floor slabs. Collect measurements and generate reports in conformance with ASTM F2170, Standard Test Method for Determining Relative Humidity in Concrete Floor Slabs Using In Situ Probes. The PosiTector CMM IS probes are designed to wirelessly connect with the PosiTector App (iOS/Android) and PosiTector DPM Advanced models via Bluetooth. View the following video for an overview of this exciting new product.

Features

  • Easily collect and report measurements in conformance with ASTM F2170
  • No need to open the hole or remove the cap to take a measurement. Probes remain powered on and broadcasting via Bluetooth® while in situ.
  • Combined sleeve and probe design simplifies the installation process and does not require consumables
  • Reusable Smart Probes
  • Fast response precision sensors provide accurate, repeatable readings 
  • Cal Check function automatically determines whether a probe is reading within tolerance
