Orion 950 Best Wood Moisture Meter

It's easy to say our wood moisture meters are accurate, but can we prove it? Well, yes.

Accuracy is a somewhat overused term that others may insert in their marketing materials in the same cavalier manner as "best value" and "highest quality." When Wagner Meters claims superior accuracy, we've got the data to back it up. For instance, read about a study by the Centre for Timber Technology and Construction that concluded that the Wagner wood moisture meter was "faster, easier to use, and more consistently accurate" than the other resistance meters tested. When compared against the benchmark "oven-dry" method, the study found that Wagner moisture measurement instrumentation was "more consistent" and had a "smaller error from the oven-dry moisture content" than the other meters tested for determining moisture content in the 12-20% range. Still not convinced about Wagner's superior accuracy? Check out these Orion best moisture meter reviews and see what our customers are saying.

Orion 930 Accurate Moisture Meter

Why is it a big deal that Wagner's Orion wood moisture meters can be calibrated in the field?

According to Dr. Gene Wengert, a rough rule of thumb is that a 4% moisture content change will cause a 1% shrinkage across the grain thickness and width. In a piece of furniture or a cabinet, as little as a 1% shrinkage can cause significant cracking, gluing, and fitting issues after manufacture. A properly calibrated and accurate meter, such as Wagner’s new Orion line of wood moisture meters, gives you quality assurance and potentially avoids thousands of dollars in damage to wood products.

If you suspect that your Orion wood moisture meter is out of calibration or you just want to be sure that it is still calibrated to Wagner's superior factory accuracy standards, you can now perform your own field calibration, right where you are, in about a minute. Other meters offer a "calibration reference" that only tells you if a meter is out of calibration. You must still send those meters to the manufacturer for re-calibration, which means money out the door and your meter out of service. The Orion’s revolutionary new On-Demand Calibrator, included with every Orion wood moisture meter, keeps superior accuracy in your hand for the life of the meter. Woodworking professionals who use Orion meters can be confident that their wood moisture readings are highly accurate and correct, minimizing the risk of faulty readings and wood product failures.
