Magnet Pole Detector-Identifier-Tester For All Magnets

Model # :  A-POLE-1

Price Range: $20.99  $19.49 

Enter Quantity:  

Works with all types of magnets!


How does it identify the north and south poles of a permanent magnet?

Simply press and hold the black oval button.

Then, place the tip of the detector near the surface of the


If it is the North Pole, the Red LED will glow.
Magnet Pole Detector - Identifier-North
Magnet Pole Detector - Identifier-South
If it's the South Pole, the Green LED will glow.

It's just that simple.

And if the button is held and the unit is moved around the

surface of the can see the transition from one

pole to another.

This pole identifier is guaranteed to be 100% accurate.

It can be used for NdFeB, SmCo, AlNiCo, Ceramic and most other

magnets and refrigerator/flexible magnets.

I've found this to be an extremely useful tool in my investigations into magnet fields. It has shown me that there is a significant different in the strength between magnetic poles due to the direction of the flux and I highly recommend it. Much simpler and easier to determine polarity quickly while working with magnets.
I've also used it to give indications of how large magnetic flux fields are by testing at different distances etc.

Very useful!!

Awesome product! Now you know for sure which pole on a magnet is what. Great for testing other magnetic fields too!
