Hysteresis Loop Measurements. These measurements are made
using the program BL.
The magnets are first cycled 3 times between 100A and 950A.
Integral Bdl measurements are then made on the up ramp and then
down ramp of the hysteresis.
Up ramp measurements are made at 500A, 550A, 600A, 650A, 700A,
750A, 800A, 850A, 900A, and 950A.
Down ramp measurements are made at 900A, 800A, 700A, 600A, and
The program then outputs 3 files summarizing these measurements:
Contains the raw measurements made with the
rotating coil. Both the reference magnet and the
magnet under test are included.
Is a summary table of calculated results using
the data found in BLLOG.RU#. This includes X-Cross
Calibrated Integrated Voltages, Ratio's to
Reference, Integral Bdl, and Transfer Function.
Is a summary table specifically used for a
plotting routine used to examine the data after
a measurement is complete. This is just a
compressed summary of the data found in BLDAT.RU#.
It contains no headers, titles, or explanations of
what the data is.
