    When you first set up your new Trotec equipment

    It is always exciting when you get new equipment  - and Trotec moisture detection equipment is especially capable and fascinating. 

    How to connect the Trotec T510 moisture meter - Installing the measuring tips

    1. Take that little rubber cap off that is sitting on the top of the meter
    2. Unscrew the two little screws
    3. Take the little pins that come with the meter and put the pins through the holes in those screws
    NOTE: For invasive testing use longer pins and screw those into the top of the T510. This step only needs to be done once or until you want to use different sized pins.
      1. Remove the protective cap (21)
      2. Detach the nuts (19)
      3. Insert the measuring tips (20) in the nuts (19)
      4. Remount the nuts (19) on the device

      Non-insulated pins

      Connect the hand pin probe to the meter by plugging the two ends into those screws on the top. Choose from a range of different sized pins that come with the kit.

      Now you are ready to check our building materials and timber with these pins.

      Insulated pins

      As another option, you can set up the hammer probe with the T510 moisture meter by plugging the pins into the new instrument. Again choose from the different sized pins: We have 16mm and 45mm that can go into the top of your hammer probe.

      How to use the Trotec T510 moisture meter

      The start button is on the right-hand-side of the meter. Turn it on and see the display light up.

      You will see two numbers:

      1. The percentage of the moisture in the material
      2. The temperature of the material

      For your reference, you get a little booklet with all of the timber species and at what percentage it should ring as different timber types have different specific gravities.

      So that's pretty much the basics on how to use the T510. It comes with our new protective silicone case and a black protective case.
