Magnetic field Meters

Gauss Meters

The Gaussmeter measures the local flux density.

Operation: measurements with the Gaussmeter use the Hall effect to perform measurements. The sensor detects the magnetic flux density perpendicular to the sensor surface. The magnetic field generates an output voltage in the sensor that is proportional to the product of the magnetic field and the induced current. For higher magnetic field strengths this relationship is no longer linear, but this is compensated for automatically in the device. The measurement can be performed in units of Tesla, Gauss, kA/m or Oersted.
