The Magnetic Field Sensor can be used to study the field around permanent magnets, coils, and electrical devices. It features a rotating sensor tip to measure both transverse and longitudinal magnetic fields.

Description

This sensor uses a Hall effect transducer, and measures a vector component of the magnetic field near the sensor tip. It has two ranges, allowing for measurement of relatively strong magnetic fields around permanent magnets and electromagnets, as well as measurement of weak fields such as the Earth’s magnetic field. The articulated sensor tip allows you to measure both transverse and longitudinal magnetic fields.
