3D Geo-Magnetometer, High-Resolution Isotropic Magnetic DC Field Sensor
Attention: No sale of this product to private individuals!
The 3D Geo-Magnetometer is a cubic sensor for measuring the magnetic flux density of (static) magnetic
DC fields such as the Earth's magnetic field and for the determination of anomalies and biologically active
- Measurement is almost independent of the sensor orientation
- Display of readings as 3D values, and for the x, y and z directions
- Display of readings in either µT or nT units
- Max. Measuring range up to ± 200 µT (= ± 200,000 nT)
- Absolute or relative values
- Accuracy better than 10 nT
- easy to handle
- Long-term records
In one-dimensionally measuring magnetometers even slight movements cause large readings fluctuations.
This makes the detection of geological faults difficult. 3D magnetometers are much more stable here! There are three magnetic field sensors and a dedicated microprocessor integrated in the probe. The sensor measures the three orthogonal components (x, y, and z-component) of the magnetic flux density and thereof calculates the compensation magnetic flux density.
Due to the geometric design and to the signal processing of the sensor the display of the substitute flux density takes place isotropically, that is, independent of direction. The sensor therefore always shows the correct flux density value, regardless of its orientation relative to the magnetic field. The field distribution and the direction of the field need not be known for the measurement. But the field direction can be determined with the instrument since not only the field strength, but also the x-, y-and z-components are displayed during the measurement.
By means of the software supplied with the 3D Geo-Magnetometer the data of the measurement directions x, y and z can be simultaneously transmitted to the computer by using the "grid measurement" per position with just one push of a button. From this, the software generates a graph that clearly represents the field distribution in space and thus gives an indication of the position of the field sources.
