GAUSSMETER, MAGNETIZER AND POLE FINDERS

Magnetizer, Gaussmeter and Pole Finders

Self-Contained Magnetizer

Part No. MAG24C - Capacity: 24,500 Amp / turns Size: 10-1/8” L x 5-1/8” W x 7-9/16” H Weight: 40 lbs. Will magnetize Alnico 5 up to 2” x 3” long and Ceramic 5 up to 2” x 2-1/2” long. Typically used to magnetize alnico. Connects to standard 120 VAC (50/60 Cycles, 14 Amps) outlet. Adjust tapered pole shoes (up to 4” gap) to fit magnet length. Place magnet or assembly between poles and depress switch for one second. Repeating the cycle does not increase magnetization.

The following magnetizing forces are recommended by magnet manufacturers for various magnetic materials, expressed in Amp/turns required per inch of length of magnet material:

  • Alnico 1,2,3 4000 Amp / turns / inch
  • Alnico 5,6 6000 Amp / turns / inch
  • Alnico 8, 9 10,000 Amp / turns / inch (varies by grade)
  • Ceramic 20,000 Amp / turns / inch
  • SmCo and NdFeB require capacitor discharge units.

Gaussmeter

Easily measure the DC Magnetic Field Intensity (Magnetic Flux Density) of any Magnet!

Part No. GM-2 - The DC Gaussmeter is a very accurate instrument useful in measuring the DC magnetic field intensity of magnets, magnetic devices and assemblies, as well as relays, electromagnets, motors, generators, loudspeakers, actuators, ferrite content in non-ferrous materials and more!

Typical applications include magnet classification, analysis of magnetic circuitry and components, air shipment inspection, measurements of the earth's field vectors, mapping and recording field perturbations, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and measuring residual fields.


Magnetic Pole Indicators

Part No. POLEIND01 - Simply point the North-South pole indicator toward the magnet and read the pole letter in the viewing hole.

Part No. POLEIND02 -The electronic North-South pole indicator features LED lights to identify pole locations. Includes pocket clip, on/off switch and 4 LR44 batteries.
