Wagner Meters introduces the New Rapid RH® 4.0 for Concrete Moisture Testing
ROGUE RIVER, OR (July 2010) – Wagner Electronics (www.wagnermeters.com) Wagner Electronics announces the release of the new generation of Rapid RH®; the RapidRH® 4.0. The new RapidRH® 4.0 utilizes the new Easy Reader featuring Wagner’s patent pending Touch-n-Sense™ technology, making it easier than ever to use Wagner’s Rapid RH®method for measuring relative humidity in concrete slabs.As with the original Rapid RH® Reader, the Rapid RH® 4.0 Easy Reader is designed to make relative humidity readings on any job site fast and accurate.
The new Touch-n-Sense™ technology means the Easy Reader goes to work instantly when inserted into any Wagner 4.0-version Smart Sensor. On contact, the Easy Reader will turn on, take the reading and can be immediately removed from the test hole. The Easy Reader will then continue to display the relative humidity and temperature for 5 minutes before turning itself off or until it is inserted into another Smart Sensor.
“When it comes to determining the risk of a flooring failure due to moisture migration using ASTM F2170 in situ testing, Wagner does it right,” says Timothy Duncan, Engineering Manager at Wagner Electronics. “With our RapidRH® generation 4.0 Easy Reader system using our newly developed and patent pending Touch-n-Sense™ technology, we offer the simplest, most cost effective, accurate, and user friendly concrete RH testing system available anywhere, bar none.”
And of course, because the Smart Sensor remains in the test hole, the Easy Reader can be moved from test hole to test hole for instant repeated measurements and NO equilibration time. With the Rapid RH® Easy Reader, getting fast and accurate relative humidity readings just got easier.
