A step by step video guide for easy reference on the proper way to install the F2170-11Compliant Rapid RH 4.0 EX concrete moisture test.

Best Concrete Test Available on the Market
The Rapid RH 4.0 EX concrete test is superior to all other humidity measurement systems on the market today. Rapid RH 4.0 EX concrete moisture tests equilibrate faster than other concrete moisture tests. The reading taken one hour after installation for concrete relative humidity content will be within 3% of the final reading.

Measuring concrete humidity with Rapid RH 4.0 EX is cost-effective, including the fact that it's a much less expensive initial investment than other humidity measurement systems that are available.

Easy to Use
This concrete RH test is simple to use, anyone on the jobsite is capable of obtaining readings after the Smart Sensor is installed.

Advanced Technology
The technology in Rapid RH 4.0 EX is so advanced, it does all of its accurate work completely automatically, from turning it on by merely picking it up to holding the concrete humidity reading for 5 minutes before powering down. Compliance with ASTM F2170 is easiest when you use Rapid RH 4.0 EX.

Starter Kit Available
The Rapid RH 4.0 EX Starter Kit includes everything you might need to start testing. The Starter Kit makes ordering simple and quick.
RH Testing of Concrete Is Simple and Fast

Wagner Meters accurately tests the RH so you can track the moisture content in your concrete slab. Wagner offers a variety of high quality moisture meters for concrete that can verify the moisture content level.

With the Wagner Meters Rapid RH® 4.0 EX, you get accuracy and peace of mind.

Section 8 of ASTM F2170, "Standard Test Method for Determining Relative Humidity in Concrete Floor Slabs using in situ Probes" provides clear guidelines for the requirements of RH readings on a project site and verifiable calibration for all sensors.
Each Smart Sensor comes with a NIST-traceable certificate of calibration. The CMOS Sens® technology insures the Smart Sensors' accuracy and rapid equilibration.

And since the Smart Sensor remains in the concrete at each job site, once it is equilibrated no further equilibration time is necessary. Readings can be taken as often as needed.

The Rapid RH® 4.0 EX Smart Sensor is not taken in and out of the hole or unnecessarily handled so calibration checks are not necessary. Once in the test hole, the very nature of the Rapid RH® 4.0 EX design and method with certifiably-calibrated (NIST) Smart Sensors means that calibration concerns, traceability and the associated certified documentation come built in with each Rapid RH® 4.0 EX test.

If a flooring failure occurs, calibration concerns, traceability and the associated certified documentation are in your hands and your compliance is assured.

It doesn't get easier than the Rapid RH® 4.0 EX.

Your time is valuable. Staring down at an owner's manual or fussing with a handheld meter and cabling adds unnecessary complexity and does not get the job done quickly.

The Rapid RH® 4.0 EX method is simple and quick. The easy installation guide, unmatched speed of equilibration, speed of readings and sensor design (nothing sticks above the slab to get damaged or stolen) mean headache-free monitoring of the relative humidity in the slab.

To obtain readings, just insert the compact Rapid RH® Easy Reader into an installed Smart Sensor and get a reading that anyone (owner, architect, general contractor or floor installer) on the jobsite can take. The Rapid RH® Easy Reader now features the patent-pending Touch-N-Sense® Technology. On contact with any 4.0 EX Smart Sensor, the Easy Reader turns on, takes a reading, then holds the readings for up to 5 minutes after it has been removed from the Smart Sensor before powering down - all automatically!

At pennies per square foot and with the most rapid readings available, the choice for the Rapid RH® 4.0 EX is very clear.

The time saving gained with the Rapid RH® 4.0 EX alone leads to lower costs for you. But the Rapid RH® 4.0 EX also has a much lower initial investment than other relative humidity measurement options in the marketplace. The Rapid RH® 4.0 EX saves you money IMMEDIATELY.
