Magnetic Field (B-dot) Sensors

The Prodyn magnetic field B-dot sensors are small to medium-sized high frequency sensors that measure the rate of change over time in magnetic fields.

They are available in free-field, surface type and radiation hardened formats with sensitive areas of up to 0.1 m2 or upper 3 dB points of 11 GHz. The voltage output from the probe is proportional to the rate of change of the incident magnetic field.

The products come with a 1 year warranty included.

How does a B-dot probe work?

B-dot sensors generate an output voltage when immersed in a time-changing magnetic field. The operation is based on Faraday’s Law in which time-varying magnetic fields perpendicular to and linking the inductive coil windings induce a voltage proportional to the time derivative of the magnetic field. The voltage output from the probe is measured as voltage across a load impedance – typically 50 Ω.

Output processing

The raw dB / dt -generated probe signal can be time-integrated to provide a local measurement using an analogue integrating circuit or recorded and integrated in post-processing. Please contact us for support with choosing the right sensor and how to interpret the results.
