Tech Note 63 Detail

Magnetic field sensor field strength measurement ranges

Affected Products:

CI-6520 Magnetic Field Sensor

Problem/Symptom:
What range of values can the magnetic field sensor measure?

PASCO Solution:

The CI-6520 magnetic field sensor measures both axial and radial magnetic field strengths from 10 to 2,000 Gauss with a 10 Gauss resolution.

Note: It is possible to measure the Earth's magnetic field (0.5 Gauss) with this sensor.
