Floating Core Magnetometer
Floating core magnetometers are primarily for measuring the horizontal component of the earth's magnetic field to make compasses. Because the earth's field has a vertical component which varies around the world, the floating core fluxgate devices always resolves only that part of the field which influences a core which is held in the horizontal plane. Autonnic's range includes both damped and undamped types as well as 3 sizes: for tilt angles of +/- 20, 35 and 45 degrees.
Autonnic implements these components in the following subsystems and modules:
