Scanning for Pex Tubing?

If you’re a plumber, electrician, or remodeler, you know first-hand how important it is to avoid penetrating into hydronic radiant floor heating systems as that can cause expensive damage to walls, floors, and ceilings.  Now, the Zircon MultiScanner® x85 OneStep® takes the guesswork out, as this multifunction scanner thermally detects actively powered hydronic radiant heating to scan for Pex tubing before you drill, cut, or fasten.

The x85 works by scanning for elevated temperature readings above the heat source and can even capture subtle changes. The contractor-grade x85 also toggles between thermal, AC, and stud modes to additionally scan for live AC wiring and find wood and metal studs, making it the go-to tool for professional tradesmen.

The MultiScanner x85’s revolutionary capacitive technology:

  • Detects hydronic radiant heating to scan for Pex tubing
  • Pinpoints location of targets up to two inches deep
  • Finds live, unshielded wiring and wood and metal studs

By digitally indicating the center of a target, the x85 enables users to accurately scan and view findings with a simple push of a button. Whether in low or bright light conditions, the x85’s large backlit transflective display and ergonomic patented pinch grip make for easy viewing and comfortable scanning.
