Bartington Instruments' HC16 Helmholtz Coil system is designed to generate stable and homogeneous magnetic fields in up to three axes. The system consists of HC16 Helmholtz Coils with a diameter of 350mm, PA1 Power Amplifier and CU1 Control Unit (CU1). It interfaces with a PXI control system (or other compatible National Instruments acquisition card) enabling complete operation of the equipment. Each pair of coils generates a magnetic field in one specific axis - X, Y or Z.
The coil pairs generate a homogeneous magnetic field, up to ±1mT from DC to 440Hz and >±100μT at 5kHz. The HC16 allows for testing of small sensors at higher fields and provides a homogeneous field to 1% in a volume of 1150cm3, and homogeneous to 0.1% in a volume of 175cm3. A mounting table is provided to hold the test item inside the central homogeneous volume.
The CU1 Control Unit connects to a National Instruments Data Acquisition card to provide control of the system from a Labview™-based software, whilst compensation potentiometers on the PA1 are used to cancel the local DC magnetic field.
The coil assemblies are built on non-conductive coil formers and can also be purchased separately from the rest of the system.
