The Orion 940 Data Collection Pinless Wood Moisture Meter Kit features the 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 Orion 940 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.

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.
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.
The Orion 940 includes a user-programmable, audible alarm for high moisture content levels.
