Mag-Probe Tested and Is Immune to an EMP
What Effect Will An EMP Have on the Mag-Probe?
The reed switch used in the Bartol Mag-Probe Test Instrument will not fail inside a large magnetic field. The switch can only conduct a small amount of magnetism. Once saturated it is ‘full’ and an increase in magnetism has no affect. The magnetic field in axial alignment will close the switch. The contact pressure will not increase beyond magnetic saturation.
The reed switch is not damaged by exposure to extreme magnetic fields because the reed switch is not a solid state device. Once the alloy reaches its saturation point an excess magnetic field does not cause changes to occur. Test results confirm that exposure to magnetic fields in excess of 30,000 Gauss does not damage the sensing component inside the Mag-Probe. This makes it Immune to an EMP (Electro Magnetic Pulse).
The Mag-Probe is an essential tool when troubleshooting military electrically operated solenoid valves, relays, and coils in the event of an Electro Magnetic Pulse Strike.

He continues to create innovations that are improving the methods used for conducting tests on electrical equipment. Bob is now researching a means of shielding electronic devices in homes across America. This method will empower Americans to survive in the event of an EMP Strike. The means for accomplishing this objective is already available in every home and apartment across America.
