Martindale NC1 Non-contact Solenoid/Magnetic Field Tester

The NC1 is a non-contact magnetic field tester for checking the operation of relays and solenoid valves in a wide range of machinery. The NC1 saves time by allowing testing of solenoids without dismantling the equipment or control panel.

A bright yellow LED illuminates the clear tip of the tester and a buzzer sounds when a magnetic field is detected.
