Magnetic field instruments include magnetometers and Gaussmeters (Tesla meters). Magnetometers and Gaussmeters are sometimes used interchangeably for describing devices used to measure magnetic field strength. However, the two can be differentiated based on the type of field strength they measure.How do you measure magnetic field strength?
The strength of a magnet is most commonly measured using a magnetometer, also known as a gaussmeter, which are used to measure everything from the Earth’s magnetic field to small magnets. A magnetometer consists of a small conductor or semiconductor at the tip of a probe through which an electrical current is passed.What is magnetic field measurement?
Magnetic fields are vector quantities characterized by both strength and direction. The strength of a magnetic field is measured in units of tesla in the SI units, and in gauss in the cgs system of units.How do magnetic inductive flow meters work?
Magnetic flow meters works based on Faraday’s Law of Electromagnetic Induction. According to this principle, when a conductive medium passes through a magnetic field B, a voltage E is generated which is proportional to the velocity v of the medium, the density of the magnetic field and the length of the conductor.
