MFR Model# MS

Overview

Magnetic Shielding is an alloy containing approximately 80% nickel (Ni). Nickel has magnetic and magnetostrictive properties. In the soft or annealed state, the molecules in nickel will absorb magnetism much like a sponge absorb water --- restricting the flow and allowing no specific pattern to emerge. Use this .005 x 5 x 12 metal strip to shield the precision PAI-700 compass from magnetic interference in the instrument panel.

Negatively influenced compass

Had a compass that was being impacted by a turn and bank indicator, but the shielding worked as advertised. Good stuff.

I was of the assumption that the Shield material is not magnetic. and could block a magnetic field And that does not seem to be a realistic assumption . Apparently I have some magnetized metal pieces within the airframe of the tube in fabric aircraft. and the only way Ill be able to fix that problem is to Demagnetized those magnetized areas.
