To troubleshoot equipment fast during operation, use a high-sensitivity noncontact probe. As long as you are following safety guidelines, this tool will help you isolate problems as electrical or mechanical without a schematic. It can detect troublesome transit pulses and can be used in high-risk explosive environments.
As a magnetic-sensing instrument, the Mag-Probe® trouble-shoots AC and DC powered solenoids, solenoid valves, relays, mercury wetted relays, heat controllers and test coils used in robotics— even automotive alternators, voltage regulators and electronic ignitions systems. It tests the largest to sub-miniature solenoids, relays and most reed relys and all automotive applications.
A Philadelphia technician told us: “This device is a “must-have” for anyone who works with solenoids, actuators, solenoid valves, or anything that operates via magnetic fields. When the included sensitivity ring is used, the device can be adjusted for amazing sensitivity, so the pick-up of small reed relays can be detected. You may discover your own new and useful ways to implement this handy tool! If treated with reasonable respect, the device will last a good long time.”
