Features

The FLIR MR160 Imaging Moisture Meter offers the professional contractor or technician the ability to pinpoint a water leak by first viewing it in an infrared image, then taking a measurement at the precise location where the moisture is concentrated. Where a traditional moisture meter can leave you guessing as to where the problem is worst, where it came from, or even where to start looking, the FLIR MR160 helps you visualize the damaged location and make accurate measurements. Images and readings are stored together and can be downloaded for presentation to a homeowner, building superintendent, or insurance adjuster.

Moisture Meter

The MR160 performs both non-invasive (pinless) and pin-type moisture measurements, and comes complete with an external pin probe to plug into the main unit. An optional hammer style pin probe is also available for when moisture lurks deeper behind walls and floors. When measuring wood using the pin attachment, the MR160 can calculate moisture content using the industry standard WME scale. If testing non-wood materials such as drywall, a relative scale is also available to the pin probe.

Pinless Measurements

The pinless sensor on the back of the FLIR MR160 is oversized and capable of accurately measuring moisture up to 3/4” deep. The reference scale of the pinless mode is calibrated to have a gradual, linear increase in reading. Where a lesser moisture meter will go from 0 to 100 (wet) at the first sign of moisture, the MR160 can help identify where a surface is more and less wet, reading 100 only when water is visible on the surface. An audible alarm can be set to sound at any interval. Differential measurements (or Delta-T) can be accomplished by first setting a reference measurement. All subsequent measurements will read as a difference from the initial level.

Thermal Camera

Incorporated into the back of the MR160 is a tiny FLIR camera to aid in finding the best location to make moisture measurements. The thermal camera has a resolution of 80 x 60 pixels and can give a good idea of where the water damage is the worst, and can even aid in determining its origin. The camera is best used from close range; less than 10 feet would be ideal. It offers a wide angle lens to keep more of a floor or wall in view, and all objects will be in focus at any point beyond 4 inches. To keep very hot or very cold objects from interfering with the image, the FLIR MR160 now includes the ability to lock the temperature scale manually.

Ice Palette

The FLIR MR160 features a special color palette designed specifically for locating water problems. Since water usually shows up as cooler in thermal images of building structures, the new “Ice” palette highlights in blue all cooler objects in view. Warmer objects are shown in grayscale and draw less attention to themselves. The overall effect is to make it easier to quickly locate areas of moisture damage. In addition to the Ice palette, the MR160 thermal camera includes the more traditional Rainbow, Iron, and Greyscale palettes.

Image and Data Capture

The FLIR MR160 includes an excellent feature that allows the thermal image and the moisture meter reading to be captured in one picture. After discovering an anomaly, push the camera button until the built in laser pointer activates. This will help locate the best spot on which to place the meter for a measurement. When the camera button is released, the on-screen image is frozen. Simply place the moisture meter on the area in question for a reading, then press the camera button again to include that measurement in the frozen image. The reading from the meter will show in the top left corner of the infrared image.

Image Download

In addition to the combined infrared moisture meter functionality, the FLIR MR160 also includes modes for thermal camera only and for moisture meter only. The later function will change the screen of the meter into a bar graph and a numerical measurement to reflect moisture content. Stored images are downloaded through a USB micro cable in a bmp format. They are easily imported into almost all reporting or word processing software programs. Charging of the internal lithium-ion battery is also accomplished through the included USB micro cable.
