Ferronato™ Coils


Bartington Instruments can supply Ferronato™ Helmholtz Coils sets from Serviciencia S.L. to operate with the PA1 and CU1 Power Amplifier and Control Unit. The larger Ferronato™ coil sets expand the range of sizes available for our Helmholtz Coils systems. The coil sets consist of an assembly of up to three pairs of coils with a diameter of 1.3m (BH1300) or 2m (BHC2000). Each pair of coils generates a magnetic field in one specific axis, X, Y or Z. The sets are available in single, dual or three-axis configurations.

The CU1 Control Unit interfaces between the PXI control system allowing to control the system from a Labview™-based software , whilst compensation potentiometers on the PA1 are used to cancel the local DC magnetic field.

The coil assemblies can also be purchased separately from the rest of the system.

To facilitate freight and installation, the coils are shipped in flat-pack form that can be assembled and disassembled at the customer's convenience. Installation and training on the system is recommended with these systems.

Typical application:

• Calibration of three-axis magnetic field sensors.

• Creation of a known magnetic environment.


• Multiple size of coils, 1.3m and 2m.

• Orthogonality correction using PA1.

• Control software available.
