    The FW Bell 5171 Gauss Meter offers the most recent design in magnetic measuring equipment. It utilizes digital signal processing technology, a world first, along with a dynamic probe correction which allows measurements from 0 - 20 kG with a basic accuracy of 1%. The 5171 Gauss Meter also includes a laboratory-friendly, 4" transverse probe (STH17-0404), detachable and made from a polypropylene material. Applications with these CE compliant meters can range from sensitive laboratory environments to rugged industrial settings. 

    The 5100 Series allows the user to choose between Gauss, Tesla, or Ampere/meter readings and features a corrected analog output (±3V FS). This series also features an auto-zeroing function, auto range, relative mode, and min./max./peak hold. The 5100 Series Gauss Meters include a built-in software that eliminates the need for complex calibration procedures. The custom-formatted LCD user prompts facilitate ease of operation.
