Extracting a 1D cross-section
To gain more insight in the magnetic field of the permanent magnet, it is possible to extract a cross-section from the data in MagScope by using the lines feature in the 2D Plot element. Six different lines are available, given the user every option to learn more about the magnetic field details:
- Diagonal line
- Horizonal line
- Vertical line
A circular cross-section is used to explain this feature.
In the toolbar on top, click on the Circle.
First place the center point of the circle by clicking in the image, then determine the radius by going away from the center point and clicking when the desired radius is achieved. The circle is now added to the plot.
The position of the center point and the radius can be changed in two ways:
- By dragging them in the plot.
- By adjusting the values in the Element Panel on the right side.
To extract the cross-section data on this circle, first select the circle in the plot and then click on the Crop button. A 1D Plot window is created, displaying the data on the circle (bottom of the picture below):
Note that the data is automatically displayed in the correct units, corresponding to the cylindrical coordinate system.
The size of the plot can be adapted in the horizontal and vertical directions independently, using the Zoom buttons .
The scale of the plot can be adjusted using the Scale controls:
To save the cross-section data to a data file, right-click either on the Interpolator element or on the 1D Plot element in Network  and select Save… . Afterwards, choose the desired file format.
