Elevator Technician Applications Testing Relays
Kevin Gittemeier is Testing Relays in the Elevator Industry Using the Bartol Mag-Probe For Different Lift Technician Applications. The nice thing about the MagProbe is it is very portable and easy to use when testing ice cube relays. Tests can be made while the equipment is operational, (Safety Permitting).
“A look at the New Bartol Mag-Probe HS and the old Mag-Probe S Model used to test relays on an elevator. This is an indispensable tool for technicians.”
Some lift technicians are taping the Mag-Probe to a stick or next to a valve or relay to conduct a test in hard to reach places. The other advantage of using a Mag-Probe is, You Can conduct a test while the equipment is operational. So it’s great for intermittent problems.
What a fast way to check ice cube relays on older lifts when you don’t have the benefit of an LED in the relay. It’s always good to get a lift back up in operation as soon as possible.
