Gauss Meter GM-1
Available from Class Instrumentation Ltd
The Class Instrumentation Ltd's GM1 Gauss meter is an easy to use method of measuring DC magnetic flux and direction using a solid-state Hall effect sensor.
The lightweight, hand-held gauge provides accurate results within a wide range and is perfect for a multitude of applications.
The Gauss meter can be used to measure
•residual magnetic fields on bearings and machinery, now subject to regulation
•residual magnetic fields on welds
•residual magnetic fields on parcels and packages
•residual magnetic fields on ships’ cargo
•Computer disk drive actuators
•Loudspeaker air gaps
•Electric motor air gaps
•Transformer stray field measurements
•Non destructive testing (magnetic)
•Goods inward and quality assurance inspection
The complete kit includes:
•Gauss meter unit
•Zero Gauss Chamber
•Full operating instructions
•2 x 9v PP3 batteries
•Foam-lined black polymer carry case
How to operate the GM-1 Gauss Meter
1. Plug the jack socket of the probe into the Gauss Meter, ensuring it is pushed in fully against the housing of the gauge.
2. Turn on the Gauss meter and calibrate by gently placing the probe in the Zero Gauss Chamber and pressing zero.
3. Place the probe in the magnetic field to be measured. The reading will be displayed in Gauss. The South poles are depicted by a negative value. The probe needs to be at right angles to the magnetic field to achieve an accurate reading of the maximum magnetic field strength.
