The Western Instruments WE-7 Compact AC/DC Magnetic Yoke is the worlds' lightest and most compact AC/DC Yoke. The WE-7 is equipped with a simple AC or DC Selector Switch. This MPI Yoke has a 6 position rotary switch for AC or 5 preset DC intensities, making the only AC/DC Yoke able to provide linear DC adjustments.

The Western Instruments WE-7 Compact AC/DC Magnetic Yoke is based on the industry standard for Yoke construction, however has Western Instruments’ Ruggedness and Quality built in. The WE-7 utilizes a standard micro-switch for activation, but the switch cover is our exclusive Slip in design. Like all WE-Series Yokes, the Power Cord Strain Relief is the toughest in the business.

The ergonomically designed housing combined with its light weight, reduces operator fatigue and strain, for more effective inspections. The compact design also allows the WE-7 to fit into confined spaces better than any other AC/DC Yoke on the market. The urethane rubber housing provides superior durability in rugged environments, so the WE-7 is suitable for the high Arctic or the Sahara desert.

The WE-7 lifts over 10 pounds (4.5kg) in AC Mode and lifts over 50 Pounds (23kg) in DC Mode, exceeding ASTM or ASME Specifications. The WE-7 is equipped with infinitely variable DC output, so depending on the workpiece size, the operator doesn’t have to risk saturating a small part. The AC/DC Selector Switch is equipped with a unique feedback loop, to eliminate failures due to switching between modes when the unit is activated.
