The D-tect 150 professional is a highly sophisticated, highly sensitive
wallscanner which uses ultra broadband radar sensory technology and three additional
sensors to detect metals, voltage, wood and plastics under the surface of walls and
ceilings. Yet despite the fact that the D-tect 150 professional wallscanner is, as its
name implies, a highly sophisticated measuring tool, which is also suitable for
professional applications, it is still nonetheless incredibly easy to use. Not only is the
selected mode presented clearly on the large, easy to read, backlit display, the intuitive
voice supported menu navigation ensures accurate and meaningful measuring results
both quickly and reliably.
As soon as the wallscanner has located an object beneath the wall’s surface, the
user is provided with accurate information regarding the properties of the detected
materials, the maximum permissible drilling depth at this particular spot, the exact
location of the object itself and the overall size of the object if it covers a large area.
A red LED lights up when the wallscanner is run over the exact sport where an
object is concealed in a wall or ceiling and the device emits a clearly audible tone to
warn the user. And when the wallscanner has detected an voltage, the red LED starts
to blink and the alarm emits a second more distinct warning signal.
The maximum permissible drilling depth, which should at all costs be observed
so as not to damage the objects which run below the surface, is displayed on the LCD
in centimetres. The D-tect 150 is also able to save the positions of as many as 64
different objects and a digital tape measure, which can be superimposed onto the
display in each of the above mentioned detection modes, can be used to determine the
distance between any two given objects or to define specific intervals for drilling as
and when it is required.
The wallscanner is ready for use from the moment it has powered up and does not
need to be calibrated before being used. The device itself is IP54 (dust and splash
proof) rated and is so robust that it can even withstand a fall from one metre.
