The Hamod is a digital magneto-optical readout system for fast and accurate visualization of magnetic field structures and field strengths. It is suitable for real-time stray field analysis and quality testing. Magnetic stray fields on EC and credit cards, magnetic encoders and di- and multipolmagnets can be visualized.
The Hamod can visualize magnetic flux densities and their changes in optical resolution. Inhomogeneities and cracks in ferromagnetic materials can be shown directly using our sensitive magneto-optical sensors. For a measurement the sensor must be applied to the surface which holds the magnetic information. The Magview-software enables the analysis of magnetization properties and the documentation of the specimen.
