Product Description

Featuring new, revolutionary Target Control® (TC™) Level 1 Technology. The Zircon® SuperScan® K1 advanced stud finder is tuned to find wood studs while filtering out metallic false positive objects, such as plumbing, conduit, straps, brackets, or ducts, hidden behind surfaces. The LoLevel™ Indicator signals to the presence of dangerous, deep, and less dense false positive targets, reducing the chance of accidentally drilling into objects such as plastic pipes.

The SuperScan® K1 offers two distinct detection modes - TC™ and StudScan. The ColorTrip® Display conveniently details information. The screen will illuminate blue in TC™ mode and indicate the center, edges, and direction of wood studs while also enabling the user to identify clean, ‘safe-to-drill’ zones by utilizing the new ‘Trust but Verify’ technique. When TC™ mode is off, the tool will perform in StudScan mode indicating the center, edges, and direction of both wood and metal studs. The Target Spotlight illuminates on screen and the SpotLite® Pointer shines on the surface being scanned when the center of a stud is found. The SuperScan® K1 is powered by a 9V alkaline battery, battery not included.

The Key to Success is the Battery

The installation of a fresh battery, with an extended expiration date, is required to steadily power the integrated LCD screen in Zircon® tools.
