Offering an easy and reliable way to determine if pipes, studs, or wiring are present behind a wall, the cordless DEWALT DCT418S1 handheld radar scanner kit features innovative radar sensing technology that detects and identifies five classes of objects behind wall surfaces including wood, ferrous metal (metal stud, iron pipe, nail plates drywall screws, nails etc.), non-ferrous metal (copper pipe, de-energized electric etc.), live electric wires, and PVC / plastic (PVC pipe, de-energized / low voltage wire, plastic electrical boxes etc.), making it ideal for remodelers, installers, service technicians and maintenance personnel.
Powered by DEWALT's 12-volt lithium ion battery system, the DCT418S1 can share 12-volt Max lithium ion batteries with other tools in the lineup, and this package comes with one battery and a fast charger.
The DCT418S1 has a sensing depth of up to 3 inches, and it displays objects it detects behind the wall surface on its 3.5-inch color LCD screen. It features a pre-scan mapping mode that eliminates the need for you to calibrate or choose between settings. The first pass over the wall surface maps all of the detected objects behind the surface. When you reverse the direction of the DCT418 to scan, the objects detected behind the wall surface are displayed.
Other features include a tracking bar that counts the number of objects detected in an up to 9.8-foot section of a wall surface, and a confidence meter communicates the unit's signal strength. An ergonomic handle with a soft over-mold grip provides a comfortable grip.
