Dewalt DW0100 vs DW0150: Main Difference
The main difference between Dewalt DW0100 and DW0150 is the stud detection depth.
Dewalt DW0100 has a detection depth of 3/4 in (19mm). In contrast, DW0150 has a detection depth of 1 – 1/2 in (38mm). They both can detect the center of a stud for metal and wood ONLY!. They both can even work when held at an angle.
Dewalt has got only two variants in stud finder tools till now (at the time of writing this blog). Here’s a quick summary to understand the difference between these stud sensors.
Additional Features of Dewalt DW0100 & DW0150
- AC live wire detection capability for increased safety.
- Constant Auto-Calibration
- Centre-Marking slot for added convenience
- Audible beef when the stud is detected
- Directional LED arrows for guidance to the center of the stud location
- Slim & light weighted design
Dewalt DW0100 & DW0150 have almost the same features except for the thickness through which they can detect the center of a stud.
If you are a professional, I would strongly suggest buying Dewalt DW0150 because it would cover work on thicker walls (1 – 1/2 in) in case you need.
Dewalt stud finder is very cheap and accurate compared to other stud finders on the market.
