Eddy current sensor

  1. Oct 25, 2004 #1
    I have some problems designing the coil of an eddy current sensor.
    I've been searching for some information in different pages and each of it has some criterion for the desing.
    I would like to know if anyone knows which criterion must I follow to achieve a successful desing.

    for any sugestion please email me at naibes@yahoo.es

    where do you want to measure eddy currents?

    I want to measure the voltage variations that occur because of the movement of a non-magnetic target near a pot-core coil.

    where? Let's say on a extreme operating conditions

    the answer is 0.
    if you disagree please, give more details.
    where? lets say on any kind of conditions
