HS-5001EZ-2 Nuclear Density Gauge

Supports the following standards: ASTM D6938, D2950, ASTM C1040, AASHTO T310, AASHTO T355

Humboldt’s HS-5001EZ-2 reflects the latest in portable, electronic design for nuclear gauges, featuring a large, back-lit LCD display. Humboldt’s EZ-2 Moisture/Density Gauge is just that — easy. Easy-to-operate, easy-to-power and easy-to-service. The EZ-2 gauge features a menu-driven control panel with easy-to-use, built-in test routines and auto features, making testing a quick and accurate operation. It also features our innovative trigger release handle that eliminates pinched fingers while providing smooth operation.

The EZ-2’s versatility allows it to measure density through direct transmission, backscatter, thin lift and trench modes, as well as providing moisture determinations. The gauge uses an advanced microprocessor-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.


  • GPS — Geographic coordinates and altitude information
  • Large Display — Easily readable in bright sunlight
  • Multi-Language — English, French, Spanish
  • 3D Accelerometer — Auto turn off-on motion (with movement of the gauge)
  • USB Port — For fast, data download
  • Power Source — 6 AA batteries
  • QR code-driven App — Capture and share data test results with anyone, anywhere

The EZ-2 Gauge complies with all pertinent standards: ASTM D6938, D2950, C1040 and AASHTO T310, T355 and is calibrated by the Five-block calibration method ASTM D7013 and ASTM D7759.

Unlike some competitors, all Humboldt nuclear gauges are manufactured with 100% new parts — no refurbished gauges sold as new.
