511 Grain Angle Meter
The Model 511 Grain Angle Meter measures grain angle in wood as the direction of maximum dielectric permittivity projected onto a flat surface of the wood relative to a reference direction. The Model 511 consist of a stationary detector, operating controls, digital display, and USB port integrated into a handlheld unit.
The detector causes radio frequency (RF) fields to be applied to the wood through defined areas on the wood surface, and senses the field at another area on the wood surface. The sensed signal is amplified and processed to determine grain angle.View our catalog for more information
