Tri-Axial Magnetometer Calibration Unit
Magnetic Sensors play a vital
role in various defence applications and they establish their mark in the field
of Sea Mines. When a ship or submarine pass any deployed sea mine, the sea mine
detects the incoming target by sensing the magnetic field generated by the
target. This is one of the mode to detect and analyse the target.
The Tri-Axial Magnetometer
Calibration Unit is designed and developed to calibrate such type of magnetic
sensors. The performance of the magnetic sensor with reference to the reading accuracy
is the key. The Coil system required to generate a small volume of uniform magnetic
field is achieved by the principle of Lee Whiting. The Lee Whiting Coil DAS
consists of Coil System, Controller Electronics unit and GUI Interface. The
sensor is calibrated over its entire range and the data is captured and
analysed by the software to check for its performance analysis.
