Every day, installers and service technicians around the world can work smarter and faster using the Danfoss CoolApps Toolbox, a collection of mobile apps uniquely designed to help with everyday cooling tasks. Today, Danfoss introduced another powerful tool for refrigeration professionals that’s just a tap away.
The Magnetic Tool app harnesses the power of Android and iOS hardware to turn any smartphone into a precise magnetic field detector. The app serves as a more convenient alternative to the variety of tools HVACR technicians rely on to ensure solenoid valves function properly.
Not only is the Magnetic Tool app more convenient—it’s also more accurate. The app provides detailed information about the magnetic field of the AC or DC coil in a solenoid valve and can indicate the rotation direction of certain types of pumps.
Additionally, the Magnetic Tool app documents the repair and installation process for users by taking a picture of the faulty component and sharing it with the system’s owner.
