The testo 606-1 moisture meter packed with a variety of quality features: easy to use; precise and absolutely reliable measurements; suitable for measuring moisture content for a wide range of different types of wood and building materials.

The two sensing electrodes are pushed firmly into the wood or building material where they measure the moisture content as a percentage based on the dry mass (dry weight).

The hold function freezes the last measurement while the backlit display ensures that the meter can be used in all lighting conditions. A slip-on protective cap and belt holder ensures the safe storage of the moisture meter and a hand strap helps prevent the meter from accidentally being dropped.

Material Moisture and Relative Humidity - Testo 606-2
Model No: Testo 606-2 Part No: 0560 6062

Testo 606-2 material moisture meter with relative humidity and air temperature measurement.

  1. Precise measurement of wood moisture
  2. Further characteristics curves for locating wet spots in building materials
  3. Hold-function for convenient read-out of measurement values
  4. Display illumination
  5. Additional advantages of testo 606-2: Measurement of temperature and humidity in ambient air Incl. dewpoint calculation and Wet Bulb.


The testo 606-2 moister meter equips you for moisture measurement in different types of wood and building materials. Apart from measuring moisture in the same way as the testo 606-1 moisture meter, the testo 606-2 also measures the relative humidity and air temperature and calculate the dew point and wet bulb temperature.
This means that you can now also measure the relative humidity in the surrounding storage area in addition to the moisture content of the wood you have stored. Armed with such valuable information, you can now easily determine whether the storage conditions are ideal or need to be adjusted.

Characteristic curves for precise moisture measurements in wood and building materials
The moisture meter testo 606-2 measures the moisture content of wood and building materials via the two sensing electrodes which are pushed firmly into the material. The characteristic curves of the different materials allow the moisture content to be displayed directly as a weight percentage based on the dry mass (dry weight). The following characteristic curves are stored in the testo 606-2 moisture meter:
- For precise moisture measurements in beech, spruce, larch, oak, pine, maple
- For detecting moisture and wet places in building materials like cement screed, concrete, plaster, anhydrite screed, cement mortar, lime mortar and bricks

The testo 606-2 moisture meter – compact, practical, professional, easy to use
A variety of practical functions and features including a hold function which freezes the last reading; a backlit display for use in all lighting conditions; a slip-on protective cap, a belt holder which ensures safe  storage and a hand strap that helps prevent your meter from being accidentally dropped, makes moisture meter testo 606-2 an efficient instrument for carrying out professional and reliable measurements

Material Moisture Measurement Instrument - Testo 616
Model No: Testo 616 Part No: 0560 6160

Testo 616 compact sized instrument for moisture measurement, precise and non-destructive means of measuring the moisture content of wood and other building materials.

  1. Precise measurement of the material moisture in building materials and woods
  2. Equipped with 10 characterisitic curves
  3. Ergonomic shape for optimum contact pressure
  4. Hold, max. and min. functions
  5. Illuminated digital display


Testo 616, the compact sized instrument for moisture measurement aids in precise and non-destructive measurement of moisture content of wood and building materials and of monitoring the drying process after water damage. Inspect the moisture content as a weight percentage compared to the dry weight by simply selecting the characteristic curve and placing the meter’s measuring claw against the surface of the material. You can also save the reading to your meter by just pressing the relevant key.

Although the measuring claw only comes into contact with the surface, wall or flooring that is being measured, it is able to determine the moisture content of the wood or other material down to a depth of 5 cm.

Ideal areas of use for the testo 616 moisture meter

The testo 616 moisture meter is a professional measuring device that can be used in areas as diverse as water damage restoration or carpentry or joinery.

  1. Moisture damage detection: the non-destructive method for finding moisture in walls and floors
  2. Monitoring drying processes: from carrying out moisture inspections to meeting building schedules to controlled drying after water damage – the non-destructive method for determining the moisture content in wood and building materials
