MultiDimension Technology Magnetometers Tailored for Magnetic Sensor R&D

MultiDimension Technology has released two new models of three-axis digital magnetometers for high-resolution 3D magnetic field measurement. They can be particularly useful for application developers working on research and development that involves magnetic sensing.

“With open USB communication protocol, these magnetometers can facilitate rapid prototyping and customization for magnetic sensor research and development,” said James Deak, co-founder and CTO. 

USB27053, pictured at top, is designed for 5 milliTesla low-field measurement and USB25103 for 2 Tesla high-field measurement. The units have 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 and sampling rate. MDT can customize them 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’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 Deak. “These 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 was founded in 2010 in Zhangjiagang, Jiangsu Province, China, with branch offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, and Ningbo in China, Osaka, Japan, and San Jose, Calif., USA. The company has developed a unique intellectual property portfolio and modern manufacturing capabilities that can support volume production of high-performance, low-cost TMR magnetic sensors.
