Other electronic stud finders are only able to sense the wall at one point. Consequently, they require the user to slide the stud finder back and forth across a wall to “learn” the wall. If there is an inconsistency in the wall at the point of the reading, the readings may be incorrect. The Franklin Sensors Multi-Sense Technology reads multiple points on the wall, all at once, and uses advanced algorithms. The result is a larger sensing area and deeper, more accurate stud sensing.
