Magnetic Field sensor

The Magnetic Field sensor BT52i contains a Hall-element, which measures magnetic field strength. The Hall-element is mounted perpendicular to the direction of the narrow end (tube) of the sensor. If the field lines are longitudinal to the tube, the output voltage of the sensor has the highest value. The sensor is therefore very suitable for measuring the magnetic field inside coils, or near (very strong) permanent magnets. The sensor is less suited to measure the field in slit-shaped cavities. The sensor has two ranges: from -100 to 500 mT and from -10 to 50 mT. A push button switches between the two ranges of the sensor.

Magnetic Field sensor BT52i can be used for:
• Measurements of the magnetic field near a (strong) permanent magnet,
• Measurements of the magnetic field near a current-carrying wire,
• Measurements of the magnetic field near or inside a coil or solenoid.

The Magnetic field sensor can be directly connected to analog BT inputs of the CMA interfaces.
Attention: The sensor cable BT - IEEE1394 needed to connect the sensor to an interface is not supplied with the sensor and has to be purchased separately (CMA Art. Nr BTsc_1).

Technical specifications of the sensor are described in its User's guide.
