MAG-ic Probe Digital Thickness Gauge - *NEW BLE Version*
MAG-ic Probe BLE for use with Computers or Smartphones!
MAG-ic Probe is an Electronic thickness gauge capable of accurately measuring the thickness of
any non-ferromagnetic materials. The primary design is geared toward the Luthier industry. Luthiers
create custom wooden musical instruments of all types using great skill and craftsmanship. These
instruments range from guitars, mandolins, violins, bass and ukelele and most of them rely on
specific thicknesses of the wooden plates that make up the top, sides and back of the instrument.
Luthiers use their skill an experience to produce a certain voice or tone from these wooden plates.
The MAG-ic probe is designed to assist in measuring these critical thicknesses when other tools do
not work or are just too cumbersome. MAG-ic Probe provides an easy and affordable tool that can
measure the thickness of large plates and is especially useful for measuring thicknesses on fully
assembled instruments. Luthiers also find useful information in measuring thicknesses of vintage or
classic instruments. MAG-ic Probe uses magnetism to penetrate the material to be measured. A probe
is applied to one surface of the plate and a ball is applied to the opposite side. These attract
each other and the MAG-ic Probe tool will measure and display the thickness in both mils (1/1000th
inch) and millimeters (mm)
MAG-ic Probe may be used to measure the thickness of any non-ferromagnetic material up to 15mm.
This includes Plastics, Aluminum, Copper and composite sheet materials.
MAG-ic Probe BLE is a total re-design and is our smallest version yet but still retains the same
probe mechanics and trusted operation.
Some of the New features offered by MAG-ic Probe BLE:
- All-in-One design with all electronics inside the handheld probe.
- Powered by USB cable to a computer or a USB Battery Pack for mobile use.
- Uses MAG-ic Probe Companion Software to display measurements on a computer.
- 16-bit A/D converter for added resolution.
- Smartphone App for measurement display via Bluetooth LE when mobile and no computer is available.
- Lower power consumption.
- Simplified magnet options.
The MAG-ic Probe BLE comes with:
- 2 magnets, a 1/2” ball for guitars, plates or any object where access is not restricted and a 1/4”
(6.35mm) cylinder magnet which should fit into most f-holes of violins and mandolins.
- The BLE Probe measuring 2.3” × 0.85” (60mm x 22mm)
- A USB Cable for Attaching to your computer.
- A Handy padded storage box.
Free Downloadable Software – MAG-ic Probe Lite Software allows you to upload a picture of the
instrument or object you are measuring on your computer and record each measurement you make to
that picture (See Software section for details). You must add the free software to your cart to be
able to download it.
MAG-ic Probe BLE can also send the measurements to an IOS or Android Smartphone or Tablet.
