Magnetic Field (B-dot) Sensors

Inductive magnetic field probes, also known as B-dot probes, are used for measuring magnetic fields (H fields). Prodyn H field probes are small to medium-sized high frequency sensors available in the following formats with sensitive areas of up to 0.1 m² or upper 3 dB points of 11 GHz.

ground plane/surface current
radiation hardened

How a B-dot probe works
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.
