All pins DZ, DA, DB for the Electrode E12 have insulated shanks and therefore measure only at the tip. As the pins are hammered towards the core, multiple readings show the moisture distribution within the material. Pinless meters cannot achieve the same measuring accuracy at a defined depth.
Pins are made out of hardened chrome-vanadium steel for easy penetration, maximum strength and low breakage.
Select length for required measuring depth. At least 1/3rd of the board thickness should be penetrated to reach the core section of the wood.
DZ pins: measuring depth 1″ (2.5cm) total length 1 5/8″ (4cm)
DA pins: measuring depth 1.5″ (3.8cm) total length 2 1/8″ (5.4cm)
DB pins: measuring depth 2″ (5cm) total length 2 5/8″ (6.7cm)
DZ-DA pins can only be used with the Electrode E12.
