- Rotor scan volume
Rotor scan volume
The ‘Scan Volume’ group defines the measurement volume. For the X and Z directions, the user defines the desired offset (relative to the Z Reference position for Z and relative to the outer rotor surface for X) and range of the measurement. The Range for the X direction determines how many concentric scans are performed (at different radial distances). The Range for the Z direction determines the axial scan length.
The number of steps needed to cover the defined volume is instantly updated.
For X, the ‘Step’ parameter defines the distance between radial measurement positions. Radial positions are generated equidistantly, but can be edited in the ‘Steps’ group (see below). When few steps are needed, ‘Range’ can be set to 0, resulting in only one radial position, located at the ‘Offset’ value. Also, if Step = Range, this results in only one radial position.
The list of steps is generated automatically after entering the ‘X Offset’, ‘Range’ and ‘Step’ values. These steps can be edited, new steps can be added and removed. The original list of steps can be regenerated (with the ‘Regenerate X steps’ button) when a user has altered this list of steps.
Two measurement modes are available: ‘Band Scan’ and ‘Spiral Scan’, which can be selected using radio buttons in MagScope.
The image stitcher feature makes sure that the all the measurments are stitched together in one image.

Magcam Rotor Scanner
The Magcam Rotor Scanner is a 3-axis motorized scan stage with an integrated MiniCube1D or MiniCube3D magnetic field camera for measuring the magnetic field distribution of permanent magnet rotors.
