    The Wagner Orion 940 Data Collection Pinless Wood Moisture Meter Kit features the Wagner Orion 940, carrying the Wagner tradition of superior accuracy forward with the added versatility of dual depth measurement and data collection. The Orion 940 can collect data in two modes, either manual or automatic, with viewable moisture stats. The Orion 940 can store up to 100 readings and includes high-low-average analysis. A flexible rubber boot makes the 940 durable enough to withstand your toughest jobs.

    The Wagner Orion 940 Moisture Meter joins the rest of the Orion line of meters in being the first in the industry to provide true in-the-field calibration capability with the included On-Demand Calibrator. Calibrate your Orion 940 at your location in about 30 seconds whenever you want.

    The Orion line of wood moisture meters continues Wagner’s 50-plus year tradition of providing accurate, dependable non-damaging pinless moisture measurement technology, measuring IN the wood not just ON the wood, and backed by Wagner’s industry-leading 7-year warranty.


    • Data Collection - The Orion 940 can collect data in two modes…either manual or automatic with viewable moisture stats. The Orion 940 can store up to 100 readings and includes high-low-average analysis.
    • Dual Depth Measurements - The 940 takes moisture readings in your wood from the surface down to .25” (6.4mm) in depth in the shallow scan mode or from the surface down to .75”(19mm) in the deep scan mode.
    • IntelliSense™ Technology - Orion 910, 930, 940, and 950 pinless wood moisture meters incorporate IntelliSense™ technology in their ¾” (19mm) deep reading modes. This enables accurate determination of the moisture content deeper in the wood while minimizing the effect that surface moisture will have on the meter readings. Pin-type meters may be able to bypass the surface conditions, but they also damage the surface of the wood every time you take a reading.
    • Fast Selection Species Settings - With simple up/down arrow buttons, your Orion 940 meter can be easily and quickly set for the wood species you need to measure. Plus, the range of settings accommodates practically any softwood or hardwood species in the world. The Orion 940 can also be configured to measure some non-solid wood products such as plywood, OSB, or MDF. Orion meters also have species settings for many bamboo flooring products.
    • Non-Damaging Pinless Sensor - Every Orion meter features electromagnetic wave technology…a non-damaging way to quickly and accurately measure the moisture content of wood or other materials. Compared against pin meters, the pinless sensor technology of the Orion line of meters does not damage the wood and also eliminates the frustrations and costs of broken pins, common with pin-type meters.
    • Virtually Unaffected by Temperature - Every Orion pinless meter is virtually unaffected by the temperature of the wood or the environment. Unlike pin meters, Orion’s sensing technology does not need correction or adjustment to account for the temperature of the wood.
    • True In-The-Field Calibration - There is no need to return your Orion to the factory for calibration. Every Orion meter comes with an individually paired On-Demand Calibrator allowing you to easily calibrate your meter anytime*, ensuring that you will always be able to obtain accurate moisture measurements. A NIST-traceable version, with a certificate of calibration, can also be purchased.
    • Relative Moisture Measurement Mode - A relative moisture measurement mode allows for taking relative moisture measurements in non-wood based materials and engineered wood flooring. This means you can use an Orion moisture meter to obtain relative moisture conditions on a number of non-wood building materials and flooring products.
    • Press to Hold Readings - On every Orion moisture meter, if you press down once on the ON/HOLD button it will hold the moisture reading you took. This is quite useful if you’re measuring in a hard to reach area.
    • Programmable Alarm - The Orion 940 includes a user-programmable, audible alarm for high moisture content levels.
    • 7-Year Warranty - Wagner Meters is proud to include the Orion line of pinless moisture meters within our Genuine Wagner 7-Year Warranty program. The longest-lasting warranty in the industry.

    What is an Wagner Orion pinless moisture meter?

    The Wagner Orion series is the next generation of pinless moisture meters featuring accuracy, versatility, and quality that can’t be found in other meters. Incorporating enhanced technology, the new Wagner Orion line (with multiple patents pending) leaves our competitors in the sawdust with high-speed moisture content readings, on the site calibration, deep depth measurements, Bluetooth enabled, and EMC calculator.

    How does an Wagner Orion pinless moisture meter work?

    Wagner Orion Pinless meters use electromagnetic wave technology. The meter sends out electrical waves at a certain electromagnetic frequency that creates an electromagnetic field in the area under the sensor pad. The meter then produces a moisture content correlated to the signal it reads back. Pinless meters typically test a much larger area than pin-style meters and can “scan” the wood for a more complete moisture content picture. Again, this technology is not without some limitations and can be impacted by density variations.

    How do I calibrate an Wagner Orion wood moisture meter?

    1. Make sure the serial number on your On-Demand Calibrator (ODC) matches the serial number on your meter.
    2. Place the ODC on its legs on a non-metallic surface.
    3. Turn the meter on, then use the SPECIES/MATERIAL button to put your meter in CAL mode.
    4. Place the meter on the ODC, correctly “seating” the meter sensor pad firmly in the recessed area of the ODC. IMPORTANT: Failure to correctly and firmly “seat” the sensor pad in the recessed area will cause an inaccurate calibration.
    5. Apply light downward pressure, and press the AUDIO button 3 times. The meter will begin to make a “beeping” sound which indicates it’s going through the calibration process.
    6. When the calibration procedure is completed, the meter will display the word LIFT. Immediately remove the meter from the ODC, and hold the meter in the air for approximately 5 seconds until the word DONE appears on the display.
    7. Press the ON/HOLD to return the meter to normal measuring mode.

    What is the best wood moisture meter?

    Well, it all depends on what you're looking for as far as meters go. There are many different articles out there with their lists of best moisture meters, but how can you tell if it's the right one for you? Most people prefer a pinless moisture meter over a pin meter because they don't want to ruin the wood. Our choice for the best moisture meter is the Wagner Orion 950 pinless wood moisture meter.
