Electromagnet systems (MCS-EMP)

MCS Modular Characterisation System
EMP Electromagnet platform

The multi-purpose MCS-EMP electromagnet platform provides all of the essential components required for automated, variable field experiments. Each MCS-EMP builds on a 4-inch or 7-inch electromagnet with pole caps, magnet base, and pedestal. Magnets feature ExactGAP™ precision-settable sample gaps. 2-inch pole caps are standard on the 4-inch MCS‑EMP, and convertible 4-inch/2-inch caps are standard on the 7-inch MCS-EMP. Optical access is optional.
