Induction Coil Sensors

  1. Jul 7, 2006 #1
    Hi all,

    Does anyone know about the working range and market availability of the induction coil sensors? The field that I am dealing with is in the range of 2000-5000 Gauss and it's not suitable to use a Hall-Effect Sensor.

    What is the frequency range? You can just use a slug inductor as a pickup, depending on what the final applicaiton is. What kind of accuracy are you looking for? Can you calibrate each unit to correct for variations in the pickup gain, or do you want to get a pickup that is already calibrated?
