Introduces a Replaceable Sensor Version of its mMAGÒ Handheld Fluxgate
Herndon, VA, March 16, 1998:MEDA, the manufacturer who introduced the first handheld fluxgate magnetometer in 1989, today announced the introduction of a replaceable sensor version of the mMAGÒ handheld fluxgate magnetometer. The new version allows the user to interchange probes without loss of accuracy.
Some applications require a longitudinal probe and others a transverse probe. The new version, called the mMAGÒ-03, can be purchased as a single magnetometer with one or more interchangeable sensor probes instead of buying two separate magnetometers with dedicated probes. With the mMAGÒ-03 the user selects the best probe for the application.
The mMAGÒ-03 has the same specifications as the other magnetometers in the mMAGÒ series. It has three ranges (± 2000, ± 200 and ± 20 milligauss), a basic accuracy of ± 0.5% traceable to NIST, linearity of ± 0.02% of full scale, a ± 2 volt analog output, and a 3 ½ digit LCD display. Resolution on the 20 milligauss scale is 1 nanotesla (0.01 milligauss). The mMAGÒ-03N includes controls for canceling the local ambient field so that small changes in the field can be detected and accurately measured.
The mMAGÒ-03 is available now. The mMAGÒ-03 comes with a single probe and is priced at $895 in unit quantities. Additional probes for the mMAGÒ-03 can be purchased for $295 apiece.
