SD Gauge Features

Humboldt’s NEW HS-5001SD Moisture/Density Gauge provides more efficient operation, data collection and processing than any other gauge in its class. Using state-of-the-art technology, the HS‑5001SD brings you a host of new features aimed at making your job easier. Featuring a 4.3" touch-screen, the SD Gauge provides intuitive operation of all gauge operations. It also provides touch pad operation as an alternative control method. The SD’s versatility allows it to measure density through direct transmission and backscatter modes, as well as thin lift, trench modes and moisture determinations.

The gauge uses an advanced micro-processor-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 SD Gauge complies with all pertinent standards: ASTM D6938, D2950, C1040 and AASHTO T310 and is calibrated by the Five-block calibration method.

Touch-Screen or Touch Pad—

You have your choice with the Humboldt HS-5001SD Moisture/Density Gauge. The gauge features a 4.3" touch-screen, which provides complete control or you can also use the menu-driven touch pad.

Tool Icon

WiFi Enabled—

The SD gauge can connect to your PC for downloading test results via wireless technology. No more cables and gauges on your desk. Our wireless function provides a reliable and secure connection up to 30 feet.

Tool Icon

Easy to Power—

The SD Touchscreen Gauge is powered by a rechargeable NiMH battery, which provides up to 60 hrs. of runtime. In addition, the gauge can also be powered by six standard AA alkaline batteries. Car charger available.

Tool Icon

USB Port—

The SD gauge also has a USB slot, which provides a convenient way to capture test data and take it with you, as well as provide an easy way to upgrade the gauge’s firmware. Firmware upgrades will be available via the internet from our website.

Tool Icon

GPS—

The SD Gauge is equipped with GPS, which keeps track of the actual location of the measuring device to ensure locations and validity of tests.

Tool Icon

Easy Self Repairs—

The SD Gauge’s modular design enables it to be serviced in the field by you, if necessary. No need to send the gauge in for repair, we’ll send you the necessary components and walk you through many of the repair procedures.
