CMEX5 EZ Flooring Kit

The Tramex Concrete Moisture Encounter X5 – CMEX5 is an instant, precise, digital, non-destructive moisture meter for measuring moisture content % in concrete floors and slabs using Gravimetric testing as a baseline.

The CMEX5 detects and evaluates the moisture conditions within the slab or screed by 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 CMEX5 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.

The CMEX5 provides instant and precise measurements of the moisture content within target areas with a reading range between 0 – 6.9%.

For concrete and other such cementitious substrates, the meter provides Carbide Method (CM) equivalent readings alongside comparative readings as per ASTM F2659. The CM measuring range for concrete is 0 – 4.3 while the CM measuring range for Anhydrite is 0-2.7.

The EZ Flooring kit contains:

  2. Hand Held Electrode (with cable and  5/8″ (30mm) pins)
  3. Hygro-i2 Electronic Interface (connects Hygro-i2 probes to CMEX5)
  4. Hygro-i2 Probe
  5. Hygro-i2 Tool Accessory box
  6. Carry Case (hard sided zipper case)
