Provides magnetic field measurement in a very compact package. For use with PASPORT Interfaces.
See the Buying Guide for this item's required, recommended, and additional accessories.
The Magnetic Field Sensor provides magnetic field measurement in a compact package. The sensor at the tip of the probe measures magnetic field strength along the axis of the probe.
- Measures magnetic field along axis of probe
- Molded plastic protects the sensing element for enhanced durability
- Displays in gauss and millitesla
- Study the field strength of bar magnets and electromagnets
- Understand the field strength of a solenoid
- Measure the field strength of a Helmholtz coil
|Accuracy||±3 gauss or 5% of reading, whichever is greater at 25°C (after four minute warm-up)|
|Resolution||0.1 gauss (0.01% full-scale)|
|Maximum Sample Rate||20 Hz|
