Fluxmeter FL-4

 

The Fluxmeter FL-4 is a measuring device for the determination of the magnetic flux Φ (Phi) of a magnet system or a single magnet.

For the examination of a permanent magnet or magnetic system, the question is the magnet quality, and how strong the magnetization of the magnet is. The measurement of the magnetic field strength with a magnetic field measuring device is only possible at certain points and does not consider the volume of the magnet. This task is done by a fluxmeter.

In combination with the List-Magnetik Helmholtz moment coil HM-1, the magnetic flux of permanent magnets can be determined very accurately, since the entire volume of the magnet is measured independently of position. The effect of the magnet on the coil is determined in the form of an electrical voltage and converted into the flux value (or flux). Technically speaking, the Fluxmeter FL-4 is an electronic analog voltage integrator.

In addition to the Helmholtz moment coil HM-1, all types of coils or coil probes can be connected to the device, whereby the magnetic flux density B can be calculated for a known turn area. The Fluxmeter FL-4 has a very high input resistance of 33 kΩ, so that the measurement error when connecting any coil probes is eliminated even with high internal resistance.

The Fluxmeter FL-4 is characterized by a very high sensitivity with minimal drift. A newly developed automatic drift correction automatically corrects disturbances such as temperature when measuring very small flow values. The built-in peak value memory facilitates the determination of maximum values of a magnet system.

For evaluation, 2 limit values (upper / lower) can be entered. When these target values are exceeded or undercut, an external 24V signal output is set and it’s visually displayed. The built-in online measurement optionally sends the current measured values to the PC via a USB interface.

You can use the Fluxmeter FL-4 not only for measuring the magnetic flux of permanent magnets, but also for quality control and sorting of magnetic products. Its versatility makes it useful in both production and laboratory.
