– New Magnetometers with Open USB Communication Protocol Facilitate Rapid Prototyping and Customization for Magnetic Sensor Research and Development
MultiDimension Technology (MDT) will release the two new models of Three-Axis digital magnetometers for high-resolution 3D magnetic field measurement. They include USB27053 for 5 milliTesla low-field measurement and USB25103 for 2 Tesla high-field measurement, with a USB interface connecting PCs or Android devices. They are ideally suited for scientific research, industrial instrumentation or educational programs in a variety of applications, including 2D/3D magnetic field mapping, material property research, non-destructive testing, object detection and tracking, algorithms for magnetic sensing and sensor fusion.
“MDT’s new USB magnetometers are designed with high-performance three-axis magnetic sensors, low-noise signal conditioning circuitry, high-resolution digitization with calibration by a microcontroller, and a USB interface communicating with PCs or Android devices. A user-friendly graphical user interface provides visualization of the 3D magnetic field in real-time, and configuration options for calibration, filtering, sampling rate, etc. MDT can customize the magnetometer to interface with any TMR sensors, Hall Effect or AMR/GMR sensors, allowing users to evaluate sensor performance and choose the best-suitable product for their applications. MDT also provides an open communication protocol that can be interfaced with any development platforms or programming languages such as LabView, Arduino, Matlab, C# or Python, facilitating rapid prototyping for new applications with ease. MDT’s magnetometers are accessible to a wide-ranging user base from sensor technology researchers, application developers, test engineers, lab technicians, hobbyists to educators and students as a general-purpose magnetic sensing instrument and also a customizable sensor research platform.” said Dr. James G. Deak, co-founder and CTO of MultiDimension Technology.
