AP235 is an all-in-one 3-axis fluxgate magnetometer with high accuracy. Unlike other fluxgate magnetometers, AP235 does not require any external Data Acquisition Unit (DAQ) or analog circuitry.
AP235 delivers up to 30 samples per second from all three axes placing it among the fastest fluxgate magnetometers. AP235 and fluxgate magnetometers, in general, do not experience hysteresis error as much as other types of magnetometers. As a result, they provide more accurate and reliable measurements.
AP235 has a measuring range of ±2.0 G (± 200 μT) well above the earth’s total magnetic field. In most vehicles this provide
the highest sensitivity possible without saturating. ±0.65 gauss versions available for even higher sensitivity. AP235 has a very low offset and noise level while offering exceptionally high linearity and temperature stability, making it suitable for a wide range of applications. AP235 supports a voltage range of 8VDC to 36VDC, and its specified operating temperature is -25°C to 70°C (for wider operating temperatures, please contact Applied Physics Systems).
The AP235 simplifies and reduces the cost of the magnetic data acquisition system by eliminating the cumbersome A to D board. The system uses three separate 24-bit DAQ converters to achieve high throughput.
