LEEI-38 Solenoid Magnetic Field Measurement Apparatus

LEEI-38 Solenoid Magnetic Field Measurement Apparatus


  • Compact and sensitive integrated Hall element

  • Easy to use

  • Stable and reliable


Using a Hall device to measure the magnetic field distribution of a powered solenoid is an important experiment in science and engineering physics education. This innovative solenoid magnetic field measurement instrument uses an integrated linear Hall device to measure weak magnetic fields with high accuracy. Hence, problems such as low sensitivity, voltage interference, and instability (due to solenoid temperature rising) existing in traditional instruments are eliminated.


Using this apparatus, students can understand the principle of an integrated linear Hall element and learn how to use it to measure magnetic fields. With protective devices for power supply and sensor, this instrument is durable.


Using this apparatus, the following experiments can be performed:


1. Measure the sensitivity of a Hall sensor

2. Verify the output voltage of a Hall sensor proportional to the magnetic field intensity inside the solenoid

3. Acquire the relationship between the magnetic field intensity and position inside the solenoid

4. Measure the magnetic field intensity on edges

5. Apply compensation principle in magnetic field measurement

6. Measure the horizontal component of the geomagnetic field (optional)
