460mm Aperture Demagnetiser

MPI Component Demagnetiser

The MC460 can be used as both a magnetising and demagnetising coil and is capable of finding circumferential orientated defects. With a sturdy PVC construction and with the coils fully sealed this unit is suitable for use in even the harshest engineering environments.

The MC460 is fitted with a self-resetting thermal cut-out to prevent burnouts from misuse and the AC only model is supplied with an energising Foot Pedal for ease of use.

Versions Available:

  • MC460/1 - AC Only
  • MC260/2 - AC/DC Model

AC/DC Model

The MC460 AC/DC demagnetizer is similar to the standard AC MC560 but is supplied with a sealed control box which features a mode selection dial to allow operators to select either AC or DC modes of operation.

The AC/DC version can be supplied with either a Foot Pedal or a Hand Control for energizing. The hand control also displays the currently selected mode.

The AC mode is effective at demagnetization / degaussing – However the DC waveforms produced by the MC460 (AC/DC) do not change polarity, so this mode is not suitable for demagnetizing parts. Therefore the DC mode should only be used when wanting to magnetize a part.
