Abstract

A simple and sensitive readout electronics for planar fluxgate sensors is presented. The system exploits the sense coils to directly generate the compensation static field avoiding the additional coil/s required in standard closed loop configuration, thus providing clear advantages in terms of size and cost. Moreover, feedback configurations are known to provide better linearity and stability of the system. The sensitivity of the developed demonstration system can be easily set from 13.3 to 104.9 mV/μT with nonlinearity ranging from 0.17% to 0.38% of the measuring interval, whereas the corresponding measuring intervals vary from ±301 to ±38 μT. The measuring uncertainty, the noise field spectral density, and the system bandwidth have been estimated in 12.2 nT, ≈ 10 nT/√{Hz}, and ≈1.5 Hz, respectively. The proposed measuring instrument is extremely easy to use and versatile. Moreover, due to the use of commercially available ferromagnetic material and the simple and via-less design, the proposed fluxgate sensor results in a very low cost and reliable device.
