Vernier's Magnetic Field Sensor can be used to study the field around permanent magnets, coils and electrical devices. It features a rotating sensor tip to measure both transverse and longitudinal magnetic fields.

The sensor uses a Hall effect transducer and measures a vector component of the magnetic field near the sensor tip. It has two ranges allowing for measurement of relatively strong magnetic fields around permanent magnets and electromagnets, as well as measurement of weak fields such as the Earth’s magnetic field.

Compatibility Requirements:
The Vernier Magnetic Field Sensor may require a compatible interface and software.

    This product is used in teaching these Australian Curriculum codes:
    ACSPH106 - Gravity and electromagnetism - Electromagnetism - Current­carrying wires are surrounded by magnetic fields; these fields are utilised in solenoids and electromagnets
    ACSPH108 - Gravity and electromagnetism - Electromagnetism - Magnets, magnetic materials, moving charges and current­carrying wires experience a force in a magnetic field; this force is utilised in DC electric motors
    ACSPH107 - Gravity and electromagnetism - Electromagnetism - The strength of the magnetic field produced by a current is called the magnetic flux density
    ACSSU155 - Physical Sciences - Energy Forms - Energy appears in different forms, including movement (kinetic energy), heat and potential energy, and energy transformations and transfers cause change within systems
