Accurate detection for multiple substructures

09 September 2016

Eliminating the costly risk of damage to water pipes and cables during drilling is easy with the Bosch PMD 10 detector, which is able to reliably detect live cables, ferrous and non-ferrous metal and wood with a high level of accuracy.

The detector immediately pinpoints the exact location of different substructures during use. Measuring Tools brand manager Ninet Bosman indicates that the improved model has more detection depth and more functional details than its predecessor. “It’s detection depth is 10 cm for ferrous metals, 8 cm for non-ferrous metals, 5 cm for power cables and 2,5 cm for wooden and drywall substructures.”

The user-friendly tool comes with five self-explanatory control buttons. The on-off switch and four others, which include: audible signal, display lighting and the metal or drywall detection functions. It is able to detect power cables in both of the latter modes.

The detector has an integrated handle which makes it easy and comfortable to guide over the position that the user plans to drill in. According to Bosman, the PMD 10 features an easy colour system. It alerts the user to a positive search result by emitting an audible signal and changing the colour of its LED ring.

“If electricity or an obstruction is detected, the luminous ring flashes red. It will flash green for clear drilling and the yellow ring alerts the user that it is not advisable to drill. The detection result can be read graphically on the illuminated display,” she concludes.
