Three-step measuring process:
Turn-on and zero setting.
Fitting of wood thickness (selected from memory).

Attention: All the characteristic curves of the wood types of this column and the adjoining one are stored inside the humidity detector FMW-B. They can be displayed by introducing the corresponding gross densities. A chart with all the materials and wood types will be included in the delivery.
To take into account:
While measuring moisture content in wood, the result will be more accurate on smooth surfaces. Moreover, the measuring value will grow on chips or knots. On the contrary, if measurements are taken on breaks, the humidity value will be lower in relation to the real humidity value (absolute humidity).
In both cases, you should measure near the area which is going to be measured.
Wood has an inhomogeneous composition. Therefore, oscillations in gross density can appear while measuring the same wood type. You will have to take diverse humidity measurements and the overall measurement result will be the mean value calculated by the detector.
On rough surface wood types, the result displayed in the humidity detector can be lower than the real value.
The result will not be affected if measurement is taken either in the fiber direction or against fiber direction.
The measurement depth is 25 mm. If the wood is very thin (e.g. < 1 cm thickness) measurement will be carried out through the wood. The material on the wood will also be measured partially.
During the measurement, the measuring surface of the humidity detector has to be completely on the surface which is going to be measured in order to avoid mistakes with results.
