With other systems, you have to manually record data with pencil and paper, writing out the serial number, date, and test results. With this system, we don’t do that because everything is recorded automatically by the Smart Reader. I just connect the Smart Reader to the sensor and immediately the data is sent wirelessly to the DataMaster™ app and the report is always there. I can’t write 78 when I meant to write 87. There’s no possibility of making a mistake in recording the data or even changing the data. So data integrity is excellent. Data goes directly from the sensor to the software and on to the report without error.
One of my favorite Wagner Rapid RH features is the DataMaster™ app. This app, which I can download onto my smartphone, tracks, stores, and reports data from my Rapid RH system. When I finish reading the test, I can send out a report about the project to my customer right then while I’m standing there. I don’t have to go back and transfer information off a notepad or into a program. So my customer gets detailed information about all the probes that are set and a picture with the locations of each sensor marked on it almost at the same time as I get it.
“When we started making lamstock and other high-end products, we had to get their moisture content within tight tolerances or risk losing grade value. That’s when we started utilizing the Wagner products because we really needed to make sure our moisture contents were right on.”
The Rapid RH® is inexpensive, quick and easy to use, and enables us to do calibration checks required for ASTM F2170 compliance in seconds rather than hours. And because it gives us quick, accurate results, we can address a potential problem quickly. Or, if there’s no problem, we can get back to the install without further delay. This saves us time, money, and effort.

I wanted a test that was accurate, reliable, and easy to use. I found only one test that met all my criteria – Wagner Meters’ Rapid RH® 4.0 EX single-use sensors. I especially liked the fact that with the Rapid RH® 4.0 EX, I didn’t have to deal with calibration, calibration checks, and the record keeping of those checks as mandated by the ASTM F2170 standard. I also liked the idea of having a NIST-traceable calibration certificate for each sensor. It made the compliance paperwork very simple and easy.
“The L622 creates many efficiencies for us. It provides us with an informative report summary that can be effectively used in helping determine the required drying needs of our lumber at any given time. And with the meter’s ability to store numerous grouped readings in its memory, our kiln operators find success with managing multiple kiln audits at any one time. The Wagner meters provide us these advantages while doing it on a very user-friendly and reliable platform.”
"The L622 also does something else the pin meter couldn’t do. It allows us to download an informative report summary to a computer which we can print out. It’ll give me an average of the recorded moisture readings, graphs, and the overall MC of each charge. So it’s been a real viable tool for us. I estimate it saves us conservatively $300,000 annually due to savings in time, energy costs, and the effort that’s spent drying the wood." Read More...
The Rapid RH is very accurate and because the sensor is already in the bottom of the hole and is already equilibrated to the hole, when you insert it to take the reading, all you’re doing is taking the reading and not disturbing it. I can walk away, come back, and I can have the customer with me and we can read it in a matter of minutes.
"Some of the wood I use is very expensive – anywhere from $100 for a small piece and up. I have one piece that’s $900. When you spend that kind of money on wood, you don’t want to turn it with the wrong moisture content in it. With Wagner Meters’ MMC220 moisture meter I can measure the common hardwoods, softwoods, and exotic species. They’re probably the best meters for any operation because they cover the spectrum."

“The process behind the Rapid RH® is solid. We went to Rapid RH® because the accuracy is certified and it doesn’t need to acclimate past its initial point. We could stick [the sensor] in there, read it and trust it.”
