FLIR MR176
Imaging Moisture Meter With IGM™

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

Visually identify hidden moisture with IGM, and benefit from added flexibility with the 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.

Convenient, Flexible, Easy to Operate

Get more work done in less time with the intuitive, easy-to-navigate menu system. Document and share your readings and images, and quickly generate reports with Free FLIR Tools PC software. With a durable, over-molded design, and an industry-leading 2-10 warranty, MR176 will serve you well for years.

FLIR MR176 Features

IGM

An 80 x 60, 4800-pixel Lepton® thermal imager powers IGM technology, visually indicating potential moisture areas via the color display

Measurement Accuracy

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 reached a steady state. 

Pin and Pinless

Integrated pinless moisture measurements for fast detection, and external pin probe included with expandable probe options

Replaceable thermal hygrometer

Field-replaceable temperature/relative humidity sensor can simply be removed from meter and exchanged when needed, so you can continue to work and reduce downtime

Customizable measurements

Select which measurements are integrated into your thermal images (moisture, temperature, relative humidity, dew point, vapor pressure, mixing ratio), and choose from one of four thermal imaging color palettes

Laser

Equipped with a laser and cross hair to easily reference the exact location of the potential moisture issue seen in the thermal image
