Thank you for selecting the Extech MO270 Moisture Analyzer with full graphical display. The
MO270 detects moisture in wood, particle board, carpeting, and ceiling/bathroom tiles noninvasively (pinless); the MO270 also measures moisture in sheet rock and other building materials
using pins that are driven into the material under test. The Sensor unit (transmitter) detaches from
the Analyzer unit (receiver) for remote measurement operation. This analyzer is shipped fully
tested and calibrated and, with proper use, will provide years of reliable service. Extech
Instruments is an ISO-9001 certified company.
IMPORTANT NOTES – PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTINUING
The MO270 is a field upgradeable device in terms of its firmware. Please visit the Extech Instruments website (www.extech.com) for the latest versions of the firmware and the Instruction Manual. To conserve battery energy, the MO270 is shipped with the two ‘hidden’ ON/OFF switches set to OFF. Please refer to the ‘Analyzer Components’ diagram (items 5 and 6) in the Description section of this manual to locate these switches. Please switch these ON in order to permit proper meter operation. 2

Initial Setup and Battery Charging
Getting Started
1.
Charge the Sensor and the Analyzer batteries if necessary (refer to the ‘Charging the
Batteries’ section below). The battery icons on the upper right corner of the display provide
battery status for the Analyzer and the Sensor units.
2.
Make sure that both slide switches are in the ON position before proceeding. (see page 4)
3.
To switch the analyzer ON, press and hold the power button
for 3 seconds; the
navigation buttons will illuminate, the speaker will chirp, and the display will switch ON.
4.
To power OFF, press and hold the power button
5.
The F1, F2 and F3 buttons are ‘soft keys’; their functions change with the specific mode or
screen that is active.
6.
The ▲, ►, ▼ and ◄ buttons are used to navigate the menu selections.
7.
The center
ENTER button is used to select the highlighted menu function and for
accessing the setup mode (by pressing and holding).
for 3 seconds.
Charging the Batteries
1.
Charging the batteries using an AC outlet
Connect the USB cable between the mini-USB port on the Analyzer and an AC outlet.
Charging will begin immediately. Both components must be set to the ON position.
Note: connecting to the Analyzer’s USB port charges both the Analyzer and the Sensor
units simultaneously (while they are physically connected to each other).
2.
Charging the batteries using a PC USB port
a.
Connect the USB cable between the mini-USB port on the Analyzer and a USB port
on the PC. Both components must be set to the ON position.
Note: connecting to the Analyzer’s USB port, charges both the Analyzer and the
Sensor simultaneously (while they are physically connected to each other).
b.
Switch the Analyzer ON using the power button (hold it for 3 seconds) and the menu
show directly below will appear.

PC CAM (reserved for future use)

Disk Drive (meter behaves essentially as an external hard drive where stored
readings in memory can be viewed and organized)

Charger (selected when connection to PC is to be used for charging purposes)
Note: The PC may return a driver error when the CHARGER option is selected as a
result of the PC sensing a new device connection; this can be ignored; the charging
process will not be affected.
3.
Checking Battery Status
When ‘CHARGER’ is selected from the menu as discussed above (with the meter connected
to the PC), the battery icons will animate in a rising and falling motion indicating that
charging is taking place. To check the battery status, the meter must be disconnected from
the PC. Once disconnected, the display will show the two battery icons in the upper right.
The
(Analyzer) and (Sensor) icons will be completely filled when the batteries are fully
charged and progressively emptier as the batteries weaken.

icon.
a)
Press the MENU (F1) button and navigate to the WME/REL box.
b)
Press
to toggle WME and REL (select WME) and then press EXIT.
4.
Carefully push the electrode pins a minimum of 0.07” (2mm) into the material under test.
Note that the pins should be inserted into wood perpendicular to the wood’s fiber structure.
For high moisture readings, several minutes may be required for readings to stabilize.
5.
Take readings in several locations on the material under test for the best representation of
the amount of moisture present.
6.
Read the measurement value on the display.
7.
Replace the protective cap when finished.

a) Press the MENU (F1) button and navigate to the WME/REL box.
b) Press
to toggle REL and WME (select REL) and then press EXIT.
3.
Press and hold the
key for three seconds to switch the analyzer OFF.
4.
Keep hands and other materials away from the rear sensor and then press and hold the
button to switch the analyzer ON. The analyzer will auto-zero during power-on.
5.
The pinless moisture detector is located at the rear of the instrument, just behind the display.
6.
Place the analyzer so that the sensor lies flat against the surface of the material under test.
7.
Take readings in several locations on the material for the best representation of the amount
of moisture present.
8.
Read the measurement values on the display.
Using the Extender Probe Handle
The supplied telescoping handle can be used to extend the sensor into areas that are difficult or
unsafe to reach. Connect the sensor (transmitter) unit to the extender using the extender’s
mounting screw and the mounting screw hole on the sensor. Note that extender handles of
various lengths are optionally available. Once connected, instructions for use match those
provided above in the ‘Basic Operation for Pin Measurements’ section and below in the ‘Basic
Operation for Pinless Measurements’ section.

ZERO MODE (Relative mode only)
The ZERO function allows measurements to be displayed as the difference between the actual
reading and a stored reference reading. Follow the steps below:

subsequent readings will be displayed as on offset from the stored reference reading. For
example, if the reference is 20 and a measurement of 50 is taken, the meter will display 30
(50 actual reading minus 20 reference reading = 30 displayed reading).
Note: The REL icon will flash on the measurement display screen while the ZERO function
is active.

Calibration Verification
Calibration Zero Check for Pinless Mode
1. Switch the analyzer to the Pinless mode of operation (REL mode) from the F1-MENU. The box
at the upper left will either be labeled WME or REL. Use the ENTER button to toggle WME and
REL modes.
2. Switch the meter OFF.
3. Ensure that the analyzer is not near any objects or surfaces. Hold the analyzer near the bottom
to avoid contact with the pinless sensor.
4. Switch the meter ON.
5. The display should read zero.
6. If an error is displayed or if the analyzer reads other than zero, please return the unit for
service.
Calibration Check for Pin Mode
1. Switch the analyzer to the Pin mode (WME) from the F1-MENU. Use the ENTER key to toggle
REL and WME.
2. The three calibration check points are located in the holes at the top of the protective cap.
3. The first measurement is made by connecting to the two test points labeled ‘L’ (for LOW) with
the meter’s pins. The display should read between 17.0 and 19.0
4. The second measurement is made by connecting to the two test points labeled ‘H’ (for HIGH).
The display should read between 60.0 and 85.0.
5. If the readings are not correct and the batteries are fully charged, return the analyzer for
service.
