Equipment for Hysteresis Loop for Inductor

  1. Apr 11, 2007 #1
    What instrument would I need to get a hysteresis loop (Flux Density vs Magnetizing Force) for an inductor? Is it something that can be easily obtained given the proper equipment?

    That's a good question. It would be easiest if you could wind your own test winding around the inductor....would you be able to do that?

    Check out the datasheets for the typical inductors that you want to test -- do the datasheets show any test circuit?
