Computer Drivers – Mag-Probe Offers No Load to Computer Drivers

Mag-Probe Offers No Load to Computer Drivers While conducting a test using a Mag-Probe a computer will not see a load.  It will not see a load because the Mag-Probe detects the magnetic field generated by the device under test.  If a test instrument creates a load to computer drivers it’s possible to obtain a…

Damaged Jack Screws Can Be Detected In Aircraft

How to Detect Damaged Jack Screws In Aircraft Letter From the Author – Jack Screws Off the coast of California, in January 31, 2000, flight 261 experienced a catastrophic loss of pitch control which was caused by a damaged jack screws threads.  All 88 on board died instantly upon impact.  It was a very sad…

Space Solenoid Valve Test

Mag-Probe Space Applications Vacuum Test

Mag-Probe Space Applications Vacuum Test The VACUUM TEST Four Model HS Mag-Probes were placed in a Bell Jar. The Bell jar was then evacuated to 1×10 to the minus fifth Torr. Using a permanent magnet located outside the Bell jar, the Mag-Probes were turned on and off for a period of 48 hours. No failures occurred.…

Downtime is Lost Potential Revenue

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…

Mag-Probe Applications Organized by Industry

Bartol Mag-Probe Applications Organized  by Industry     We understand that in many industries there are overlapping Mag-Probe applications. In the aircraft industry there are airports, and airports have elevators and escalators that also have relays and solenoid valves that need to be tested.  They also have vehicles with electronic ignition, another application of the Mag-Probe.…

Mag-Probe Test Keeps Boeing 767 from Being Grounded for Good

On August 19, 2015 a problem occurred with one of the relays on a Boeing 767 Flight Idle and the Approach Idle control relay.   This problem was causing one of the Boeing 767 engines to run at different rpm’s when they were supposed to be running at the same rpm.   Aircraft Engineer Saemi was working…
