  2. Hold the instrument in your hand, press the back sensor close to the testing material, the reading showed on display will be the result of the tested material moisture content. (when the back sensor is larger than the testing material, you can press the sensor aim to the material by its middle of surface.)

  2. Setting the “AL1” just the same ways as “AL2”.
  3. Usually, “AL2” must larger than “AL1”, if the “AL2” less than “AL1” during setting process, then the instrument will be returned back the factory setting, just to say, AL1=13, AL2=18.


Please take out the batteries if the instrument is not in use for a long time. Put the probe in the air without touching anything when zeroing, or the zeroing is not efficient.
