Magnaflux Y-2 AC Magnetic Yoke Kit

Magnaflux Y-2 AC Magnetic Yoke Kit

Ergonomically designed to improve productivity, reduce operator arm and wrist fatigue and has new features like the field swappable cord and isolated trigger switch.

Lightweight, Ergonomic AC Yoke

The Y-2 is an AC electromagnetic yoke, ergonomically designed to improve productivity and reduce operator arm and wrist fatigue. The yoke generates a strong AC magnetic field for the detection of surface indications during magnetic particle testing.

Lightweight with an ergonomic grip and trigger, the Y-2 is designed for the rugged demands of field inspection. Featuring a field swappable cord and isolated trigger switch; the Y-2 is easily serviceable because a severed cord should not  stop a job from getting done.

A super bright LED attachment is available as an optional item to help illuminate the inspection area while simultaneously magnetizing the part.
