One of the main sensors used in the navigation of every microdrone is the magnetometer. This device is able to measure the spatial extent of the earth’s magnetic field. Precise calibration is of extreme importance, as the sensitivity of this device is very high.

With the help of a Helmholtz-coil, Microdrones is capable of creating its own test field, with a uniform and earth-like magnetic field, for a precise reference measurement and fine adjustment of our aerial platforms.  

The important facts:

  • 3-axis, 3-dimensional Helmholtz-coil
  • capable of simulating a magnetic environment
  • big enough to accommodate an md4-1000 or larger test object
