Replace the battery door.
AC VOLTAGE DETECTION
1.
Set the power switch to the ON position.
2.
Repeatedly press the SELECT button until
is displayed.
Calibration
3.
Hold the unit in the air away from any metal objects.
4.
Press and hold the READ button.
• The unit will beep three times when calibration is
complete. Do not release the READ button.
Using
5.
Keep holding the READ button and place the unit on
the wall, slowly move the unit sideways across the wall.
• When the maximum signal indicator on the LCD lights
up and the buzzer sounds, mark the point by placing a
pencil mark in the grove on top of the unit.

AC VOLTAGE DETECTION
6.
Continue to move the unit in the same direction until
the maximum signal indicator on the LCD goes out, then
move the unit in the reverse direction.
• Once again, mark the point at which the buzzer sounds
by placing a pencil mark in the groove on top of the
unit.
• The centre of the live wire is located mid way between
the two pencil marks.
Notes
• Some walls containing metal fibres (used in fireproofing)
will cause the detector to register a voltage over a
wider area.
• Rubbing or banging the wall may generate static
electricity, causing a false reading.
• Touching a damp wall being tested may also cause a
false reading.
• The unit will not detect wire inside metal shielding or
trunking.

by placing a pencil mark in the grove on top of the unit.
• The middle of the studding is located mid way between
the two pencil marks.
Always check that the “STUDDING” you have
detected is not a metal pipe,
see page 6.

STUD DETECTION
Notes
• You can use the detector on wallpaper, however it may
not be effective on some types of foil backed
wallpapers or plasterboard.
• If the unit is placed over studding during the calibration,
the unit will not work, simply re-calibrate the unit 150 mm
away from the last place.
• The surface of the wall should be dry and flat.
• Always keep your free hand away from the wall during
detection.
• If you release the READ button at any time during
detection, you will need to carry out the calibration
procedure again.
• Knots in wood may cause false readings to occur.
• Normally, studding is placed at intervals of 40 - 60 cm.

Hold the bottom of the unit flat against a wall,
approximately halfway between the floor and the
ceiling.
Press the READ button once.
• The unit will beep and display the distance between the
two points. ‘E’ (error) will appear on the display if you
attempt to measure a distance longer than 18 metres.

1
Measure the width of the room.
2
Press the X button.
3.
Measure the length of the room.
4.
Press the X button again.
5.
Measure the height of the room.
6.
Press the X button again.
• The resulting volume measurement is shown on the
display.
7.
The measured distance can be switched between
square feet and square metres by pressing the MODE
button.
Adding or subtracting distances
1
Measure the first distance.
2
Press the + or - button.
3.
Measure second distance.
2
Press the + or - button again.
• The result is shown on the display.
• You can repeat the process, adding or subtracting
measurements indefinitely

TIPS
• Re-calibrate the unit frequently to avoid inaccurate
readings.
• Take several readings vertically above, below, to the left
and right to confirm the reading.
• When taking measurements, make sure that there is
nothing in the way of the ultrasonic beam such as
curtains, desks etc.
