The P-2000 paper-moisture tester from Kernco can help you control the quality of your substrates. The digital device is designed with three scales for testing various paper stock and a 0-100 arbitrary scale for obtaining moisture indications on other materials. The P-2000 considers the relationship between moisture content and electrical resistance. Contact pins mounted on top of the meter are used for making direct contact with the substrate. The unit features automatic calibration and a set point with buzzer to alert users when a preset moisture-content percentage has been reached. It stores up to 100 readings and displays the average and highest of the readings. The P-2000 supports moisture ranges of 4.3-18% on paper, 0-100% arbitrary, and 5-40% on baled scrap paper. The unit is powered by a 9-volt battery, comes with a carrying case, and is covered by a one-year warranty. Kernco Instruments Co., Inc., 420 S.
