The complete solution for measuring the magnitude and direction of the Earth’s magnetic field.
See the Product Description for this item's included accessories.
The magnitude and direction of the Earth’s magnetic field are measured using a Magnetic Field Sensor mounted on a Rotary Motion Sensor. The Magnetic Field Sensor is rotated through 360 degrees by rotating the Rotary Motion Sensor pulley by hand. The Magnetic Field Sensor is zeroed using the Zero Gauss Chamber, the walls of which are made of a highly permeable material that redirects the magnetic field around the chamber.
PASCO Advantage: The sensitive Magnetic Field Sensor combined with the Rotary Motion Sensor enables the measurement of the magnetic field strength as a function of angle from North. It is essentially a computerized compass that can measure both the direction and the magnitude of the field.
Designed for use with any of the following
- 850 Universal Interface
- 550 Universal Interface
- Any PASPORT interface with 2 ports
- Magnitude of the earth’s magnetic field
- Direction of earth’s magnetic field
- Dip angle
