3D Rotator

General description

3D-Rotator brings increased speed and better comfort of anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility measurements. The 3D-Rotator rotates the specimen simultaneously about two axes with different velocities. The 2-axis rotation enables to de termine 320 directional susceptibilities during a single anisotropy measurement. These directions are very well distributed on a sphere which makes the measuring design almost rotatable. The actual measurement is fully automated in such a way that, once the specimen is mounted into the rotator, it requires no additional manipulation to measure the full AMS tensor. The approximate duration of one anisotropy measurement including bulk susceptibility is 1.5 min, compared to more than 3 minutes when the classical (3-plane) rotator is used.

Main features

Automated AMS measurement in variable fields
Bulk susceptibility automatically measured right after anisotropy measurement
Anisotropy tensor automatically calculated from 640 directional susceptibilities
Sophisticated software support
For MFK1-FA/A and KLY5-A Kappabridges
