3D analysis elements
Most of the analysis elements have additional functionality for analyzing 3-component data. Generally, the component to be analyzed can be selected in a dropdown menu at the top left of the element window. This window not only contains the measured Bx, By and Bz components, but also derived components in the used coordinate system.
For the Cartesian coordinate system the available components are:
- Bx, By, Bz: basic Cartesian magnetic field components
- B: full magnetic field magnitude, = sqrt(Bx^2 + By^2 + Bz^2)
- Bxy, Byz, Bzx: magnetic field magnitude in a plane. E.g. Bxy = sqrt(Bx^2 + By^2)
- Thp: polar angle of magnetic field vector, i.e. angle between the vector and the positive Z-axis
- Tha: azimuth angle of magnetic field vector, i.e. angle between the projected vector in the XY plane and the X axis.
For the cylindrical coordinate system these are:
- Br: radial component
- Bt: tangential component
- Ba: axial component, this is usually the same as Bz
- B: full magnetic field magnitude, same as in the Cartesian case.
- Brt, Bta, Bra: combination of two components, analogous to Bxy etc. in the Cartesian case.
- Thp, Tha: polar and azimuthal angles of the magnetic field vector, same as in the Cartesian case.
There is a dropdown menu for selecting the component to be plotted in a 2D Plot element (Cartesian components). Left Bxy is shown, right Tha is shown.
Network elements that use this dropdown menu are:
The Minicube3D is a 3D magnetic field camera, providing quantitative (Bx,By,Bz) magnetic field mapping in a 12.7mm x 12.7mm 2D plane with a 0.1mm spatial resolution, measured at high speed.
