Non-contact Magnetic Field Tester, Intrinsically Safe
The ATEX and IECEx approved version of the Magnet Stick for use in hazardous areas such as chemical plants, oil refineries, off shore rigs and explosive environments.
The Magnet Stick EX provides safe and simple checking for the presence of magnetism.
Upon testing and without metallic contact, the lamp lights immediately where there is a magnetic field (e.g an activated coil in a solenoid valve). Equipment can be tested without having to switch it off and magnetic coils can often be tested through their protective cover, saving hours of dismantling time.
The Magnet Stick responds to all kinds of magnetic fields from alternating direct current, to permanent magnets.
