5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly easy to use and very effective, 4 Jan 2014
This review is from: Bosch PMD 7 Digital Detector (DIY & Tools)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Length:: 1:28 Mins

The Bosch PMD7 Multi-Detector is an incredibly simple-to-use device for detecting where any wires or metal might be embedded within your walls. Basically, it's a simple and effective way of finding out if it's safe to drill into areas of your walls.

This is actually my third Multi-Detector - and I have to say it's by far and away the best one that I've had. The sheer simplicity of the Bosch PMD7, with just one button which either turns it on or off, and a traffic-light style indicator - makes using the Multi-Detector an absolute doddle.

The Multi-Detector has automatic calibration, meaning you just need to turn it on, put it up to the wall and then you're good to go (although you can manually calibrate it if required). It also switches itself off after 10 minutes in case you forget to (my last one didn't!).

The Multi-Detector has the following maximum scanning depths:
- Ferrous metals - 70mm
- Non-ferrous metals - 60mm
- Copper conductors (live) - 50mm

The Multi-Detector displays the following:
Green Light - No object detected
Yellow Light - Metal object in vicinity of sensor (but may still be fine). Caution needed.
Red Light with Continuous Tone - Metal object detected in sensor area
Flashing Red Light with Intermittent Tone - Live wire/conductor detected.

All in all I've been extremely happy with the Multi-Detector. I've used it around the house a fair bit over the last couple of weeks (I've got a tonne of odd jobs to do) and it's proven to be an easy and effective device for quickly assessing where I can and can't drill.
