Operation

Inserting/Replace the battery

Use only 9Vbattery.

Insert the supplied battery to Figure 10 indicates the battery compartment.,Only the correct polarity can be loaded into the battery compartment。

If the measuring tool is not used for a long period of time,the battery must be moved.The battery can corrode or discharge itself over long periods.

 

Switching On and Off

ÅProtect the measuring tool against moisture and direct sun irradiation.

ÅBefore switching the measuring tool on,make sure that the sensor area 9 there is no moisture,If required,wipe the measuring tool dry using a cloth.

ÅIf the measuring tool was subject to an extreme temperature change,allow it to the adjust to the ambient temperature before switching on.

Press the switch on button 5 seconds to switch on the measuring tool.

After a short test,The detector will enter the ready to run state。The measuring tool automatically enter the function model of detecting metal,This time if no metal interference,The buzzer is always making a dididi sound and the red light is always flashing;Show the measuring tool need calibration.”

The calibration method is:Placed the measuring tool to an around no metal and strong magnetic field interference environment(eg.:hold the measuring tool up in the air etc.),Press the metal button again,Until the buzzer dose not make a sound and the green light is lit,Show the calibration has been finished,then release the button to detect the metal.

Detecting objects

Use the detector can find the objects below the detection area 8

Detecting metal objects

When scanning for metal objects need to press the metal detection button .At this time the metal detection indicator symbol is indicated in the display,and the green light is lit.

Place the measuring tool onto the surface to be scanned and move it sidewards,when the measuring tool comes close to a metal object,at this time the signal strength grade of display will change color;Change from green to yellow and then to red ,And the measured signal feedback level from 0 has been displayed to the maximum number (less than 100).when it moves away from the object,Whereas the color of signal strength grade changed from red to yellow and then turned green and the measured digital feedback signal has the largest gradually changed to 0,When the program of detector determines the received signal reaching the maximum ,Show the metal object is located below the center of the sensor。At this time the cross of display icon j will appear ,The indicator light flash red at the same time and a steady tone sounds.

When scanning for metal objects,The depth detection mode on the screen will follow the detection operation and the detection depth value will display Synchronously,The accuracy of the depth value there is relationship with shape and position will be scanned for metal objects;When the measured object is the normal rebar of diameter 20mm,And the normal rebar is relatively parallel to the detector,The accuracy of the depth value is the best,The depth value only as a general reference value.

Detecting wooden objects

When scanning for wooden objects,The detector must come close to the wall then press the wood detection button ,keep the measuring tool can’t shift,Waiting for the measuring tool has finished calibration (the green lights),the pattern of the wood detection will be appeared in the display.

Place the measuring tool onto the surface and move around,When the detector come close to the wooden objects,the signal strength grade of display will change color;Change from green to yellow and then to red ,And the measured signal feedback level from 0 has been displayed to the maximum number (less than 100).when it moves away from the object,When the detector slowly moves away from object,Whereas the color of signal strength grade changed from red to yellow and then turned green and the measured digital feedback signal has the largest gradually changed to 0 .When the program of detector determines the received signal reaching the maximum ,Show the wooden object is located below the center of the sensor。At this time the cross of display icon f will appear ,The indicator light flash red at the same time and a steady tone sounds.

Caution: When the detector begin to detect objects,If the detector was placed above the wood inclusions,When you move the measuring tool to scan objects,the buzzer sounds “dididi” ,and indicator flash red or yellow.If the above conditions happened,must repeat to detect,when the detector scans for the objects again,We must change the location of the detector,To repeat step 1。

Scanning for “live” wires

Press the live wire button to enter scanning for “live” wires。At this time the pattern of live wires is appeared in the display;If there is no live wires around the detector but the buzzer is always sounds “dididi” and the indicator light flash red,or there are live wires around the detector but can’t detect,Show the measuring tool must calibration。The calibration method is:Placed the measuring tool to an around no metal and strong magnetic field interference environment(eg.:hold the measuring tool up in the air etc.),Press the live wire button again,Until the buzzer dose not make a sound and the green light is lit,Show the calibration has finished,then release the button to detect the live wires..

The detector can find 110 volts, 240 volts and 380 volts (AC) live cables.

The operation of the level detecting

Press the level button to enter the level detection interface。This function is a automatic function,Automatic detection the level of the current X/Y direction for instrument,The test results are displayed on the screen timely.

The guidance for operation mode

On condition of the principle,the measuring value can be impaired through certain ambient conditions.These include,e.g:the proximity of other equipment,that produce strong magnetic or electromagnetic fields,moisture,metallic building materials、Foil-laminated insulation materials or conductive wallpaper,Therefore,please also observe other information sources(e.g. construction plans)before drilling,sawing or routing into walls,ceilings or floors.

Maintenance、 service、cleaning

ÅWhen the measuring indicator g continuously shows an amplitude even though there is no metal object or live wire in the vicinity of the measuring tool,the measuring tool can be calibrated manually,For this ,remove all objects in the vicinity of measuring tool (including wrist watches or tings of metal)and hold the measuring tool up in the air,with the measuring tool switched on,press the button 3 or 7 ,When the green light lit and the buzzer sounded a “di” , Show the manual calibration was successful,the measuring tool will start over after two seconds and is then ready for operation.

ÅWipe away debris or contamination with a dry,soft cloth,Do not use cleaning agents or solvents.

ÅIn order not to affect the measuring function,decals/stickers or name plates,especially metal ones,may not be attached in the sensor area 9 on the front or back side of the measuring tool.

ÅStore and transport the measuring tool only in the supplied protective case.

Waste disposal

Must be in line with the requirements of environmental protection and recycling of the damaged detector.Accessories and packaging materials。

Only for the countries of the European Union:

Can't take away the damaged detector in the general household rubbish!According to the European statute 2002/96/EG for waste electric and electronic machine,And the provisions of the decree that each country quoted, please separate collection the detector,And use the way of meeting the requirements of environmental protection to recover,recycle the waste detector,rechargeable batteries/batteries。

Can't take away the damaged detector in the general household rubbish ,fire or water .Please collect the damage rechargeable-batteries/batteries,and sent them to the recycling center to disposal ,or use the way of meeting the requirements of environmental protection to purge the damage rechargeable-batteries/batteries.
