This little gadget detects wood, metal, and live wires buried up to 1-1/2 inches deep, alerting the user with both an audio and liquid crystal display warning. It can tell the difference between wood, metal, and live wires, no matter what the surface material: drywall, tile, plaster, you name it. It calibrates automatically, too, whether you're using standard or deep-read mode. The display is crisp and very easy to read; the unit is compact and lightweight and runs on 9-volt batteries. Before biting into a wall with a reciprocating saw, check it first with the IntelliSensor. --Kris Jensen-Van Heste
The Stanley IntelliSensor Digiscan Stud Sensor detects and differentiates between wood, metal and live wires simultaneously through drywall, tile, plaster and other common wall materials. Using both an audio alert and an easy-to-read LCD display for visual detection, this sensor helps you quickly and accurately locate stud and joist edges and center positions. This digiscan locates wood studs and live AC wires in both 3/-4 inch standard and 1-1/2-inch deep-read modes; automatic calibration occurs in both modes. Made with a heavy-duty ABS construction for durability and featuring a convenient pencil notch at the top for marking stud edges, this sensor is also ergonomically designed to fit comfortably in the hand. This tool runs on a 9-Volt alkaline battery (not included) and has an automatic shut-off to save power. This product is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
