Magnetic Field Simulator & Calibration Unit
Magnetic Sensors Play a vital role in the field of Defence and Aerospace applications and also they establish their mark in the field of under water sea mines. When a ship or a submarine pass any deployed sea mine, the sea mine detects the incoming target by sensing the magnetic field generated by the target. The magnetic signature is one of the parameter to detect and analyse the target.
The Tri-Axial Magnetic Sensor 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 Calibration Unit consists of Coil System, Controller Electronic Unit, Graphical User Interface and Data Acquisition system.The sensor is calibrated over its entire range and the data is captured and analysed by the software to check for its performance analysis.
