Zircon MultiScanner x85 OneStep
Multifunction Wall Scanner with Center, Water-Filled Plastic Pipe, and AC Finding Technology.
The MultiScanner x85 OneStep thermally detects water-filled hydronic radiant heating, scans for live AC and finds the center of wood and metal studs.

- StudScan: Finds the direction, center, and edges of wood and metal studs up to 1 inch (25 mm) deep.
- DeepScan: Finds the direction, center, and edges of wood and metal studs up to 2 inches (50 mm) deep.
- AC Scan: Detects live, unshielded electrical AC wiring up to 2 inches (50 mm) deep.
- Low battery indicator for optimum performance.
- Arrow-shaped SpotLite Pointer indicates detected target.
- Water and dust resistant.
Find Actively Heated Pipes, Studs, and Electrical
Thermal Scan Detects Actively Heated, Water-Filled Pipes
Thermal Scan Mode:
Use this mode to detect actively heated ½ inch (13 millimeters) diameter water-filled PEX Tubing up to 2 inches (50 millimeters) deep.
In Thermal mode, the x85 scans for elevated temperature readings, even subtle changes, directly above the heat source.
StudScan & DeepScan Find the Edges and the Center of Stud
Use this mode to find the center, edges, and direction of wood or metal studs up to ¾ inches (19 millimeters) deep. For best results, always start in this mode when looking for studs.
If StudScan mode provides irregular readings, or the Signal Strength Indicator is weak, the studs might be behind more than ¾ inches (19 millimeters) of drywall. Quickly push the handle of the device downward twice to switch into DeepScan mode. This doubles the scanning depth to 1½ inches (38 millimeters) deep and allows for increased accuracy on deeper targets.
AC Scan Mode Helps Find and Trace Live, Unshielded Wires
AC Scan Mode:
In this mode, the LCD screen finds live, unshielded, electrical wires up to 2 inches (51 millimeters) deep. Move the x85 slowly across the surface and the signal indicates whether you are moving closer to or farther away from the source. Mark where the strongest signal appears. Continue this process to track the wires through the walls.
The Key to Success is in the Battery
Three new, fully charged AAA batteries are required to steadily power the integrated LCD screen in Zircon tools. Please note that, like a cell phone or any personal electronic device, the batteries needed to power Zircon tools can lose power even when sitting idle. The installation of a fresh battery, with an extended expiration date, typically resolves 99% of problems seen by Zircon Customer Support.

Frequently Asked Questions
Question: What is the 'Thermal' mode of the scanner designed to do?
Answer: Thermal mode detects heated water in ½ in (13mm) PEX Tubing (such as is used in radiant heating applications) up to 2 in (51 mm) deep.
Question: How deep does the Stud Scan Mode scan?
Answer: The x85 scans up to the following depths:
- Stud Scan: ¾ in (19mm) deep.
- DeepScan: 1½ in (38mm).
Question: What does ‘Center Finding’ mean?
Answer: Center Finding alerts the user with a SpotLite Pointer and beeping alert when scanning over the center of the stud (as opposed to the edge of the stud).
Question: Does the MultiScanner x85 work on lath & plaster walls?
Answer: Due to irregularities in plaster thickness, it is difficult for the MultiScanner x85 to locate studs in StudScan mode. If the plaster has metal mesh reinforcement, the x85 will be unable to detect studs through that material.
Question: Can I use this scanner on the exterior of my home?
Answer: No. Zircon StudSensors are designed and recommended for interior use only.
Question: Does the MultiScanner x85 come with batteries?
Answer: In most cases, yes. Three new AAA batteries are required.

The Zircon MultiScanner x85 is a one of a kind wall scanner with its patented ergonomic pivot pinch grip and the latest in density detecting software. The MS x85 thermally detects and allows the user to map water-filled hydronic radiant heating, scans for live unshielded AC wiring, and locates the edges and center of wood and metal studs. The center Mode Button makes it easy to change functions while the backlit LCD screen, arrow shaped SpotLite Pointer, and audio tone all indicate the location of the target. The Signal Strength Indicator helps to distinguish between shallow and deep targets. The MultiScanner x85 also includes ACT (Auto Correcting Technology) that automatically corrects common user errors, such as when scanning begins over a stud, in addition to a low battery indicator to alert its users to replace its batteries for optimal performance results. Keep in mind that the tool’s LCD screen and internal technology requires a fully charged battery to run optimally. The MSx85 acts as a stud finder in two of its four modes. In StudScan mode, the multifunctional x85 locates the center, edges, and direction of wood or metal studs up to 3/4 of an inch (19 mm) deep. Press the Mode Button twice to switch to DeepScan mode and double the scanning depth to 1.5 inches (38 mm). Additionally, the MS x85 is programmed with a WireWarning Detection feature that indicates the presence of live unshielded electrical wires up to 2 inches (50 mm) deep when using both stud scan modes. To detect, locate, map, and trace the live wires, simply press the Mode Button twice more to shift to the AC Scan function which finds and traces live, unshielded AC wiring up to 2 inches (50 mm) deep. Pressing the Mode Button two more times will set the MultiScanner x85 in Thermal Scan mode. In this mode, the x85 thermally detects the center of actively heated water-filled ½ inch (13 mm) diameter plastic pipes up to 2 in. (50 mm) deep. This feature is perfect to detect, locate, map, and trace radiant floor heating systems under tile and other flooring. The x85 is now available in amazon exclusive easy open packaging with no clamshells or zip ties. The Zircon MultiScanner x85 multi-surface scanner is the perfect tool for contractors and serious DIY remodelers alike allowing you to safely maneuver through the most complicated of projects with the professional confidence that comes from owning a Zircon.
