Measurement frequency

  1. Dec 8, 2012 #1
    Does any one know how to measure the frequency of a magnetic field? They sell handheld meters but they only measure Mhz and higher

    Frequency of what? An oscillating magnetic field? Which frequency range do you expect? 1 Hz, 10Hz, ..., 1MHz?

    Do you have access to an oscilloscope or frequency counter? If so, you may be able to just use an inductor as a pickup probe for the magnetic field.
