Bartol Mag-Probe Can Dramatically Reduce Downtime
Downtime Definition (Lost Potential Revenue)
The term downtime is used to refer to periods when a system is unavailable. Downtime or outage duration refers to a period of time that a system fails to provide or perform its primary function. Reliability, availability, recovery, and unavailability are related concepts. The unavailability is the proportion of a time-span that a system is unavailable or offline. This is usually a result of the system failing to function because of an unplanned event, or because of routine maintenance (a planned event).
Here Is What Ace Troubleshooters Are Saying About The Mag-Probe

The Bartol Mag-Probe
A non-contact instrument for testing the operation of AC or DC relays and solenoids. Sensitive enough detect the magnetic field generated by tiny “ice cube” relays. The Mag-Probe can also make tests through most shielded solenoid valves and relays and is completely self contained and sealed so it can be used in explosive environments.
This magnetic sensing probe is a completely safe, non-contact probe which allows trouble shooting without schematics or special training while eliminating time consuming and cumbersome hookups. It detects residual magnetism, transient pulses (“glitches”), in AC and DC powered solenoids, relays, or any device using a coil. You can safely and easily identify and separate electrical from mechanical problems accurately and inexpensively. Just place the probe tip close to the coiling the device. If the LED light is on, the device is energized; if the LED light is off, the device is de-energized.
The Mag-Probe is constructed of non-conductive materials due to the risk of shorting live circuits. It also uses a small internal lithium battery (included) and can be used in situations whirled content is a concern. It has a shelf life of 10 years.
Length 3 1/2″ long. Weight 1 oz. Made in the USA – High Sensitivity Model can be used on the Smallest to the Largest Solenoid Valves and Relays. It will even sense the field around a reed relay making it the most versatile and effective magnetic tester on the market. Don Fitchett endorses this product.
We are not advocating you do not use voltmeters, only that you begin your troubleshooting using a Mag-Probe. This will keep you from going down an electrical nightmare rathole when separating electrical from mechanical problems when conducting tests on solenoids, relays or coils.

Many times a faulty solenoid valve or relay can cost a company thousands of dollars as they wait for a solution during the trouble shooting process.
Most companies use the Mag-Probe to reduce downtime by conducting their initial tests when separating electrical from mechanical problems on solenoid valves or relays. Mag-Probe saves valuable minutes when getting systems and services up and running. In the Gas and Oil industry downtime can cost millions. In the elevator industry it can save executives valuable time in busy high rise buildings. The list goes on and on and on.
In a down sliding world economy it’s not just how much money you make that increases profits but how much money you save while you are making money. Typically the ROI when using the Mag-Probe is one test. This is astronomical considering the price of a Mag-Probe varies around $50.00.
The Bartol Mag-Probe is Intrinsically Safe, Waterproof, Corrosion Resistant, and can be used in +160 F to the to -80 F. It can be used on the largest contactors when using the protective white shield which protects it from detecting overlapping magnetic fields, to the smallest ice cube relays and solenoid valves on aircraft, elevators and many industrial production lines.
