Textometer DMB-15

Portable moisture meter

The Textometer DMB is a mobile handy device for measuring moisture on textile webs and bobbins on a wide variety of versions. It determines the moisture content of raw materials, semi-finished products and finished products precisely and quickly.

Product highlights

  • Many universally usable electrodes
  • Touchscreen & colour display
  • Large measuring range
  • Over 5 hrs. of battery operation
  • Data export (CSV) via USB

Customer benefits

  • Reliable moisture measurement
  • Covers all material combinations
  • Portable, fast, flexible and precise
  • Easy operation
  • Most effective in fighting mould and fungus

The Textometer DMB is small, lightweight and portable – and therefore exactly ready wherever needed. It is mobile for use in the field and just as stationary in the laboratory and plant. The touchscreen of the new device generation ensures even simpler operation. The device can be operated with rechargeable batteries (with automatic shut-off) or power connection.

Stored measurements can be transferred to the PC via USB media.

Area of application

The user selects the most common types of fibres and their composition via the touchscreen. The mixing ratio can be adjusted in 5% increments. The measured values can be stored in separate memory banks and thus divided into different categories (e.g. different types of fabric). An integrated USB interface facilitates transfer of the stored data to a PC.

A large selection of electrodes and accessories allows for a wide range of applications.


With an addon the Textometer DMB can also be used as a conductivity gauge for electrostatic flock coating.
