HCS1 Three-Axis Helmholtz Coil System
System consisting of three pairs of coils, a drive amplifier, and a control unit. Coils generate a magnetic field up to 500μT for a DC field and up to 100μT for a 5kHz field.
This system generates a magnetic field of up to 500μT for a DC field and up to 100μT for a 5kHz field. The coils produce a 0.1% homogeneous field of 4.5 cubic centimetres and a mounting table is provided to hold the test item inside the homogeneity volume.
The system consists of three pairs of coils and a drive amplifier that runs from a standard mains socket. A control unit (CU1) can also be supplied that allows the user to set the field, set any DC compensation as required and receive feedback from the coils. The CU1 includes a National Instruments® PXI system and operates using LabVIEW-based software.
