magnetic field camera

high resolution - high speed magnetic field mapping

 

With the Magnetic Field Camera (Magcam) Measurement Platform, Magcam NV offers the world's first magnetic field camera system. The unique Magcam sensor contains a patented sensor chip with an integrated  two-dimensional array of over 16000 microscopic Hall magnetic field sensors. Each sensor independently measures the local magnetic field, resulting in a quantitative 3D magnetic field map with high spatial resolution, measured at high speed: less than 1 second for a 13x13mm² map with 0.1mm resolution.

The MiniCube magnetic field camera sensor module only measures 24x24x24mm³. The sensor is mounted in an anodized aluminum enclosure.

The fully digital and compact measurement system simply connects to a computer via a single USB cable, making the measurement data directly digitally available. The Magcam maps are analyzed in real time by the MagScope measurement & analysis software and its optional add-on software modules, which provide powerful measurement and analysis capabilities for a complete quality control and characterization of small permanent magnets.

The Magcam system opens up a new dimension in R&D and quality control for sensor manufacturers, magnet producers, magnet suppliers, motor/generator constructors, research labs and more.
