Step 1 - Pan Mode: Panoramic view of a full wall line, with distances.
To use pan mode, hold the Walabot against the wall, calibrate and scan from one side of the wall to the other. Pan mode will show an image of objects within the wall and approximately where they are located. Pan facilitates a quick overview of where studs are placed in the wall.
Different classifications of objects like wooden studs, metal pipes, and plastic pipes will create unique colored stripes in the image viewer.
Each type of object will be defined by the stripes and can be used for future reference in either Image or Expert mode.
Step 2- Image Mode: visual classification of studs, pipes and more.
To use image mode, hold the Walabot against the wall and move over the objects which were identified in Pan mode.
Walabot RF technology will analyze the objects and translate the results into images which are identified by type according to the results.
Results of RF readings can identify wooden studs, metal studs, pipes, and wires.
Step 3 - Expert Mode: see the raw signals from the Walabot sensor.
Expert mode gives a direct view into the unfiltered RF produced image. This image can show location in more detail, curves in pipes and wires, the intersection between two objects, movement in real time and can be used to confirm objects found in Pan and Image mode.
Expert mode gives a direct view into the unflitered RF produced image. This image can show location in more detail, curves in pipes and wires, the intersection between two objects, movement in real time and can be used to confirm objects found in Pan and Image mode.
