The magnet calculator makes it possible to perform field calculations for linear, i.e. bipolar, magnetized, geometrical basic units. The following basic units are available: block, disk, ring. When performing the magnetic field calculation for an axial coordinate system, you can also calculate values for spheres and strip-type magnetic plates with a fixed pole distribution.
The magnetic induction (flux density) B is calculated in mT. The field strength H in kA/m can be determined using the formula H=0.796 B.
Alongside the field strength, which is highly dependent on the start point for the measurement, the magnetic moment is also determined in 10-9 V s m and corresponds to the moment of a magnet with volume V=1 mm³ at polarization J=1000mT. This magnetic moment is independent of location and can be determined very precisely using a fluxmeter and a Helmholtz coil. It is therefore often used in the quality assurance process in order to characterize magnets. In real magnets, the field strength and moment may differ somewhat from the computed values due to tolerances, geometrical differences from the theoretical dimensions (e.g. chamfers, injection points) and surface effects.
Magnetic field calculation for a single axis:
Please always specify the distance s as the distance from the surface of the magnet to the sensitive surface of an intended sensor!
The magnetic strength is calculated directly from the magnetic characteristics. These are the two characteristic values that you will find as DIN code in the material data sheet. For example, for Neofer 48/60p you enter the code 48 / 60.
If the second value (coercive field) of the two characteristic values, which you get as DIN code in the material data sheet, is too low, i.e. the magnetization is not stable, a calculation is not possible and a warning is displayed. If the values match, a green OK field appears.
