The Orion 950 Smart Pinless Wood Moisture Meter Kit features the Orion 950, carrying the Wagner tradition of superior accuracy forward with all of the features of the 910, 920, 930, and 940 meters and adding more. A flexible rubber boot makes the 950 durable enough to withstand your toughest jobs.

The Orion 950 joins the rest of the Orion line of meters in being the first in the industry to provide true in-the-field calibration capability with the included On-Demand Calibrator. Calibrate your Orion 950 at your location in about 30 seconds whenever you want.

The Orion line of wood moisture meters continues Wagner’s 50-plus year tradition of providing accurate, dependable non-damaging pinless moisture measurement technology, measuring IN the wood not just ON the wood, and backed by Wagner’s industry-leading 7-year warranty.

Meter Features:

Bluetooth® App Enabled

The Orion 950 interacts through Bluetooth technology with free mobile apps for your Android or Apple smart device. The app is available on either Google Play or iTunes. You can receive and record data, set specifications for separate jobs, and much more!

To send readings data from the Orion 950 to the FloorSmart™ or Woodshop MC app on your smart device, follow these steps:

  1. Ensure that Bluetooth has been enabled on your smart device. The Orion 950 will automatically pair with your smart device when the power is on and the two devices are within Bluetooth range.
  2. Ensure that the DATA mode on the 950 is ON. Consult your Orion 950 manual for instructions.
  3. Open the FloorSmart or Woodshop MC app and enter a new job description or choose a current job to edit.
  4. Press the “Record” tab at the bottom left to access the “Record Readings” screen.
  5. Press the “Record” button at the top right to enable the app to record data from the Orion 950.
  6. Scan the target area with the Orion 950 and press the “ON/HOLD” button when you want to send a reading to the FloorSmart or Woodshop MC app.

Temperature and Humidity Sensor

Get the ambient temperature and relative humidity (RH) measurements of any room the Orion 950 is in with its built-in sensor. It’s like having an ambient conditions data logger and a moisture meter all in one!

Dew Point Calculations

The Orion 950 will calculate the dew point of the environment for you. Utilizing the built-in temperature and humidity sensor, the Orion 950 will calculate and display the current dew point whenever and wherever you need.

Equilibrium Moisture Content

The Orion 950 will also calculate if a wood specimen is at the critical threshold where it has reached its equilibrium with the environment and will no longer gain or lose moisture. The equilibrium moisture content (EMC) will tell you when your wood floor or wood projects are ready for installation or fabrication.

Grains Per Pound/Kilogram Mode

Grains per pound/kilogram (GPP/GPK) is a more precise measurement to know the exact weight of water vapor that is in the surrounding air. The Orion 950 will calculate and display instantly the grains per pound/kilogram, also known as the specific humidity of the air, compared to relative humidity.

FAQs

What is an Orion pinless moisture meter?
The Orion series of pinless moisture meters features accuracy, versatility, and quality that can’t be found in other meters. Incorporating enhanced technology, the Orion line leaves our competitors in the sawdust with high-speed moisture content readings, on the site calibration, deep depth measurements, Bluetooth enabled, and EMC calculator.

How does an Orion pinless moisture meter work?
Orion Pinless meters use electromagnetic wave technology. The meter sends out electrical waves at a certain electromagnetic frequency that creates an electromagnetic field in the area under the sensor pad. The meter then produces a moisture content correlated to the signal it reads back. Pinless meters typically test a much larger area than pin-style meters and can “scan” the wood for a more complete moisture content picture. Again, this technology is not without some limitations and can be impacted by density variations.

How do I calibrate an Orion wood moisture meter?

  1. Make sure the serial number on your On-Demand Calibrator (ODC) matches the serial number on your meter.
  2. Place the ODC on its legs on a non-metallic surface.
  3. Turn the meter on, then use the SPECIES/MATERIAL button to put your meter in CAL mode.
  4. Place the meter on the ODC, correctly “seating” the meter sensor pad firmly in the recessed area of the ODC. IMPORTANT: Failure to correctly and firmly “seat” the sensor pad in the recessed area will cause an inaccurate calibration.
  5. Apply light downward pressure, and press the AUDIO button 3 times. The meter will begin to make a “beeping” sound which indicates it’s going through the calibration process.
  6. When the calibration procedure is completed, the meter will display the word LIFT. Immediately remove the meter from the ODC, and hold the meter in the air for approximately 5 seconds until the word DONE appears on the display.
  7. Press the ON/HOLD to return the meter to normal measuring mode.

  1. Blacktail Studio

    Can’t tell you how great this tool is. Had a slab air dried for six years and was about to build a desk for a client. Put the meter on it and was waaaaaay too wet (30%+) Confirmed reading at my local lumber supplier and got them to kiln dry it. All good now, disaster averted!
