AC Electromagnetic Yoke

The Y-2 is an AC electromagnetic yoke, ergonomically designed to improve productivity and reduce operator arm and wrist fatigue. The yoke generates a strong AC magnetic field for the detection of surface indications during magnetic particle testing.

Lightweight with an ergonomic grip and trigger, the Y-2 is designed for the rugged demands of field inspection. Featuring a field swappable cord and isolated trigger switch; the Y-2 is easily serviceable because a severed cord should not stop a job from getting done.

A super bright LED attachment is available as an optional item to help illuminate the inspection area while simultaneously magnetizing the part.


Increase inspector productivity and reduce physical fatigue

  • Less arm strain, wrist fatigue and physical stress help operators get more done due to the lightweight and ergonomic design.
    Easily position the yoke in any direction with lightweight, heavy-duty and powerful electronics components.

Keep tools in service with a design that's built to last

  • Cords and triggers can be easily replaced, so work doesn’t stop and tools aren’t scrapped due to accidental damage.
    Prevent dust and dangerous water damage with an IP54 o-ring sealed housing.


  • Ergonomic, light-weight design
  • IP54 sealed housing resists dust and water
  • Field-swappable power cord
  • Isolated, replaceable trigger switch
  • Steel shields for leg protection
  • Exceeds ASTM lifting specifications
  • Convenient carrying case supplied with all yoke shipments
  • Optional LED yoke light lasts longer and is more intense compared to traditional bulbs
