Wireless Magnetic Field Sensor

Product Code: PS-3221

Description

PASCO’s new Wireless 3-Axis Magnetic Field Sensor is sensitive enough to measure Earth’s magnetic field! It can also measure magnets and fields in a coil.


Typical Applications

  • Measure the magnetic field of permanent magnets.
  • Measure Earth’s magnetic field.
  • Measure field strength of Helmholtz coils.
