Handheld Three-Axis Magnetometers: Technology Review
By Philip Keller, Marketing & Product Management | Metrolab Technology SA When introduced in 2008, the Three-axis Hall Magnetometer THM1176 surprised by its form factor as well as its functionality. Resembling a mass-market USB device rather than a “gaussmeter”, it simultaneously measures all three components of the magnetic field vector, a feature generally reserved for high-end bench-top systems. This three-axis capability ensures that the vector magnitude B is always known, regardless of the probe’s orientation. An optional palmtop computer provides a completely portable, battery-powered solution. <read more>

The Last Large Gathering
By Stan Trout | Spontaneous Materials
In August, I had the pleasure of attending the 23rd Rare Earth and Future Magnets and Their Applications Workshop in Annapolis, MD. This series of workshops was conceived in 1974 by the late Dr. Karl J. Strnat at the University of Dayton. The workshop is usually a nice mix of academics, raw material suppliers, magnet producers and magnet users, all who look at permanent magnets from both a technical and commercial point of view.

The EMI Design Seminar
Oz-headshotInstructor: Richard Ozenbaugh – Ozenbaugh Engineering

January 20, 2015 (8 AM – 5 PM) – Beverages and Course Materials Provided



Register before December 20th: $495 | Register after December 20th: $695


Who should attend this seminar?
Any person that foresees EMI challenges on the horizon should attend. System engineers, Power supply engineers, and any Electronic engineers should also attend. It could be advisable for Mechanical engineers also attend so that they will know why the filter must be handled for best results. Some mechanical engineers have compromised the EMI filter so the designed filter loss is greatly reduced.
