FLIR MR176 Imaging Moisture Meter

FLIR MR176 Imaging Moisture Meter

With IGM™ Infrared Guided Measurement

Featuring Infrared Guided Measurement (IGM) technology powered by a built-in FLIR Lepton® thermal imaging sensor, MR176 visually guides you to the precise spot that moisture may be hiding for further testing and investigation. Use the integrated laser and crosshair to help pinpoint the surface location of the issue found with IGM.

Easily Investigate Moisture Issues and Troubleshoot Quickly

Benefit from added flexibility with MR176. Customize readings to your preference by selecting which measurements are integrated into your thermal images (moisture, temperature, RH, dew point, vapor pressure, mixing ratio), and display images in a color palette of your choice: Ice, iron, rainbow, or gray.

Take Precise Measurements and Confidently Analyze Readings

Verify moisture levels with non-intrusive, integrated pinless sensor moisture measurements, or via the external pin probe (with expandable probe options) for intrusive measurements. The field-replaceable temperature and relative humidity sensor can simply be removed from meter and replaced when needed, so you can reduce unnecessary downtime. A Progressive Environmental Stability Indicator removes response-time error when you move through a site to different measurement locations, informing you when the relative humidity readings have stabilized.

FLIR Moisture Meter Accessories & Cases

Replaceable Accessories

FLIR Pins

FLIR’s new insulated pins are smaller in diameter – requiring minimal force to drive the pins into a surface – resulting in less impact to the material. The sandblasted, hardened-steel pins with single-piece design prevent bending and create an improved bonding surface for the abrasion-resistant insulation. The insulation extends all the way to the connection to the probe, so even if you drive the pins all the way into the wall cavity, the drywall will not affect the measurement.

  • Fits Hammer, Wall Cavity and Combo Probes
  • Unibody construction vs. two piece
  • Smaller diameter pins
  • Sandblasted hardened steel
  • Insulated with abrasion resistant coating
  • Replacement Pins:
    • MR-PINS2: 2" pins, 1 pair
    • MR-PINS2-10: 2" pins, 10 pair
    • MR-PINS4: 4" pins, 1 pair
    • MR-PINS6: 6" pins, 1 pair

FLIR MR01 - Replaceable T/RH Probe

Replacement temperature/relative humidity probe for the FLIR MR77 moisture meter

  • Metallic screw on connection
  • Field replaceable
  • Factory calibrated
  • Protective cap

FLIR MR02 - Replaceable External Moisture Pin Probe

FLIR MR02 - Replaceable External Moisture Pin Probe

The FLIR MR77 moisture meter comes with an external moisture pin probe for penetrating measurements. MR02 is the replacement for the accessory included with the MR77 purchase. Additional pins are available (part number MO220-Pins).


Pin Probes

FLIR MR05 - Impact Pin Probe

The FLIR MR05 upgrades your FLIR moisture meter to help you easily test for moisture in challenging spots — on rough or uneven surfaces, in corners, in hard woods or high-density materials, and even in areas without a dry reference. Made with extra-durable pins and a metallic impact plate that can withstand hammering to drive pins into the hardest materials, the FLIR MR05 lets you tackle the toughest moisture measurement challenges.

  • Six additional sets of thick and thin pins
  • An external pin accessory for extended reach
  • 1/4"-20 integrated wrench on the cap to replace pins
  • Durable BNC connector
  • 2.45m (8') coiled cord
  • 2 year warranty

Compatible with FLIR MR77, FLIR MR160, and FLIR MR176.

FLIR MR06 - Wall Cavity Probe

The MR06 Wall Cavity Probe expands the functionality of your FLIR Moisture Meter by allowing you to easily measure insulation moisture levels within the wall cavity and the inside face of exterior walls.

  • Insulated pins designed for increased durability
  • Rubberized ergonomic grips reduce slippage 
  • Detachable cord with durable BNC connection
  • 4" and 6" pins included
  • Impact plate to drive pins through drywall

Compatible with FLIR MR77, FLIR MR160, and FLIR MR176.

FLIR MR07 - Hammer Probe

The MR07 Hammer Probe expands the functionality of your FLIR Moisture Meter by allowing you to take measurements in subfloor through carpet, hardwood flooring, and hard materials that are difficult to penetrate with a standard pin probe.

  • Insulated pins designed for increased durability
  • Rubberized ergonomic grips reduce slippage 
  • Detachable cord with durable BNC connection
  • Pins Included: 2 × 2" pins

Compatible with FLIR MR77, FLIR MR160, and FLIR MR176.

FLIR MR08 - Hammer and Wall Cavity Combo Probe

The MR08 Hammer and Wall Cavity Probe Combo is ideal for both hammer probe and wall cavity applications. The hammer probe has an additional handle on the bottom to add convenience for angled, horizontal, and inverted hammer-probing needs. The bottom handle can be unscrewed and used as a wall cavity probe to measure the moisture level of insulation within the wall cavity and can also reach the inside face of the exterior wall. You can also install the impact plate for use with a hammer to punch the extended pins through drywall.

  • Insulated pins designed for increased durability
  • Rubberized ergonomic grips reduce slippage 
  • Detachable cord with durable BNC connection
  • Pins Included: 2 × 2" pins, 1 × 4" pins, 1 × 6" pins
  • Impact plate to drive pins through drywall
