The Model DC-2000-C is a 9V battery operated professional portable wood lumber moisture meter. This easy-to-operate instrument can be used in factories, mills, and yards by anyone regardless of their technical skill. This meter has three different wood species settings for increased accuracy, making this the unit of choice. The DC-2000-C is equipped with auto-ranging, with no need for moisture range selection. A Species Selector Switch is a feature of this premium instrument that provides better accuracy when testing a wide range of wood types. Except for certain variations in the temperature or species of wood, the dial readings are accurate without further correction. In addition, temperature correction tables and calibration charts for 36 specific wood species are provided for easy reference and use.
We also include a a choice of two special IMPACT Handles to easily obtain deep wood penetration depending on softwood or hardwood species.
Awarded the “American Woodworker Best Buy”. Others may look cuter, this one works tough and true.
For quick semi surface readings, use the more economical DC-2000 Moisture Meter.
The DC-2000-C determines the moisture content by measuring the electrical resistance between the needles that are driven into the wood with the special deep penetration handle. The instrument reads the wettest portion of the wood rather than averaging the moisture content which, might otherwise be misleading. The DC-2000 can be operated by any one regardless of technical skill to obtain accurate, immediate results.
Several tests can be taken along a board in less than a minute to obtain not only moisture content, but also to disclose any gradients or wet streaks.
In addition to its accuracy and versatility, the DC-2000-C can be used to estimate the shrinkage of wood and to check for gradient distribution of moisture.
You will know when wood is subject to rot.
The availability of two different Heavy Duty Needle Electrodes makes the DC-2000-C a versatile instrument that can be used on all wood applications from kiln dried to air dried woods. The electrode heads are made of durable Cycolac plastic to withstand hard usage. The heavy duty needles are designed for use on the most dense wood, yet can be withdrawn after tests without breakage or bending.
Equipped with auto-ranging, the instrument provides accurate, reliable readings over a wide range from 5 to 65 percent moisture content.
In addition, wood technology indicates that wood rot is most common when wood moisture content exceeds 20 percent. Users in the pest industry will find the DC-2000 or 2000-C invaluable in helping to locate conditions where wood decay and "dry-rot" are creating a breeding ground for pest.
