Humboldt’s HS-5001EZ Moisture/Density Gauge is just that — easy. Easy to operate, easy to power and easy to service. The EZ gauge features a menu-driven control panel with easy-to-use, built-in test routines and auto features, making testing a quick and accurate operation. It also features our innovative trigger release handle that eliminates pinched fingers while providing smooth operation.
The EZ’s versatility allows it to measure density through direct transmission and backscatter modes, as well as including thin lift and trench modes, as well as moisture determinations. The gauge uses an advanced microprocessor-based technology to provide highly-accurate measurements of density and moisture that are automatically computed for direct readouts of wet density, dry density, moisture content, percent of moisture, percent of compaction (Proctor or Marshall), void ratio and air voids. The EZ Gauge complies with all pertinent standards: AS1289, AS2891, ASTM D6938, D2950, C1040 and AASHTO T310 and is calibrated by the Five-block calibration method.
