General description
General description
This instrument measures the moisture and temperature of building materials (such as sand, aggregates and mixes) at depths up to 1 m approx., simply by insertion. The digital readings are shown instantly. The Microlance has a built-in computer, which gives it the flexibility to handle a wide range of materials and water contents. The meter comes with standard calibration for sands and aggregates, but is easily recalibrated in the field for virtually any material or mixture using the built-in “Autocal” facility.
