Moisture Meter

Concrete Moisture Encounter Expert

A digital version of the CME4 handheld electronic moisture meter, the Tramex CMEX II moisture meter is designed for the instant and precise measurement of moisture content in concrete and other floors and screeds. Incorporating plug-in ports for the optional Hygro-i ® relative humidity probe and heavy-duty pin-type wood probe, this moisture meter transforms into the ideal all-in-one instrument for the flooring professional.


  • Measures up to 6.9% Moisture Content in Concrete.
  • Large clear backlit digital display.
  • Hold function “freezes” meter reading when inspecting areas where the meter face is not visible.
  • 7% to 40% Moisture Content measurement in Wood using Pin-type probe attachment. (optional)
  • Attaches to a relative humidity Hygro-i ® probe for in situ testing of concrete to ASTM F2170. (optional)

Product Order Code: CMEX2


The CMEX II detects and evaluates the moisture conditions within the slab or screed by non-destructively measuring the electrical impedance. A low frequency electronic signal is transmitted into the material under test via the electrodes in the base of the instrument. The strength of this signal varies in proportion to the amount of moisture present in the material. The CMEX II determines the strength of the current and converts this to a moisture content value for concrete slabs and a comparative value for other cementitious floor screeds, displayed on a large clear digital dial.


Hygrometer mode:

When the optional Tramex Hygro-i2 ® relative humidity probe is plugged into the CMEX II, the instrument automatically changes to Hygrometer Mode, allowing for in situ relative humidity (RH) testing of floor slabs per ASTM F2170 and BS 8201, 8203 Hood Method, as well as ambient conditions of temperature, relative humidity, dew point and mixing ratios. This resilient probe is reusable and can be checked regularly for calibration.


Wood pin-type probe mode:

In Pin-probe mode by plugging in the optional handheld or hammer probe the CMEX II becomes a resistance type pin meter for determining the moisture content of wood and wood based products. The CMEX II gives moisture content readings from 7% to 40% in wood. A species adjustment table and a temperature adjustment chart are supplied for precise readings in woods of varying densities and readings taken in various temperatures.
