The Three-axis Hall Magnetometer is used to measure the magnetic field (flux density). Its unique, extraordinarily compact design allows it to be used as a portable instrument or directly connected to a PC.
The probe is designed for measuring magnetic fields with frequencies from DC to 1 kHz. Measurements on medical equipment (magnetic resonance imaging, MRI), metal production equipment and railway systems are typical application. To avoid injuries to patients or personnel with implants, hospitals usually mark the danger zone around an MRI scanner, where the field exceeds 0.5 mT (5 Gauss).
The total magnetic flux density is provided no matter the orientation of the probe, which greatly facilitates many measurement tasks such as field mapping. Outstanding features are as follows:
- Three axes
Simultaneous measurement of all three axes of the magnetic field provides the total field, no matter the orientation of the probe.
- Microscopic field sensitive volume
The High Field sensor volume of only 150 x 150 x 10 µm3 provides excellent localization and a self-consistent measurement of the three axes even in highly inhomogeneous fields. The Low Field sensor volume is 6 x 3.4 x 10 mm³.
- Magnetic fields up to 20 T
The High Field probe allows measuring even very strong fields as far as 20 Tesla. The standard calibration covers the range up to 3 T. The Low Field probe measures up to 8 mT with a resolution of 2 µT.
- Bandwidth of DC to 1 kHz
The 1 kHz bandwidth allows measuring AC fields generated, for example, by transformers and motors.
- Graphical results display
Magnetic flux density vs. time can be displayed as a graph. Measurement data can also be recorded to file.
