The Zircon StudSensor 70 is a handheld tool dedicated to quickly and easily find studs and joists behind walls, floors, and ceilings while alerting you of live AC wiring. The SS 70 comes equipped with 2 scanning modes: StudScan and DeepScan Features include:
StudScan and DeepScan - Center and Edge Finding Stud Finding Mode
The SS 70's StudScan and DeepScan modes locate the edges and center of wood and metal studs and joists behind walls, floors and ceilings.
StudScan finds shallower wood or metal studs up to .75 of an inch (19 mm) deep while DeepScan doubles the scanning depth to 1.5 inches (38 mm).
Make sure to note whether the WireWarning Detection is alerting to live, unshielded AC wiring before drilling into the center of the stud.
WireWarning Detection is a feature that is always on while you are scanning in StudScan and DeepScan modes. It alerts you to the presence of live, unshielded, electrical AC wires up to 2 inches (50 cm) deep. The WireWarning LED illuminates when the SS70 detects live AC voltage. If scanning begins over a live AC electrical wire, the WireWarning LED flashes continuously.
Note: Please turn off the electricity and use extreme caution in areas where live AC voltage is detected before nailing or drilling.
Integrated Wall Marker
The SS 70's integrated erasable marker allows easy, one-handed operation.
When the target is found, simply push down on the 'mark' button. The pencil marks the surface without interrupting the scan.
The SS 70 comes with a pencil pre-installed, and refills in the box.
The installation of a fresh battery, with an extended expiration date is required to steadily power the integrated LCD screen in Zircon tools.

Question: Does the stud finder need to be calibrated?
Answer: Yes the StudSensor 70 needs to calibrate to the surface before scanning. Calibrating the stud finder on an empty wall gives the device a chance to measure the wall thickness and material density, as well as register factors like humidity, temperature, and even the minor electric readings from your hand, which all have an impact on the readings from the wall.
Question: How can I be certain the objects found behind my wall are studs in DeepScan mode?
Answer: DeepScan mode has increased sensitivity so you may have located something other than a stud. Studs are equally spaced to either side (12, 16, or 24 in. apart) and typically run from floor to ceiling.
Question: What is Auto Correcting Technology (ACT)?
Answer: Auto Correcting Technology (ACT) is a feature that enables the tool to automatically adjust for common calibration errors. It checks calibration 10 times per second and automatically recalibrates when/if needed.
