Of primordial importance for the fabrication of certain type of pumps is the availability of building solenoids that can generate a homogeneous magnetic field as the latter is responsible for the forces that give origin to the pumping [login to view URL] need to measure the magnetic field generated by a solenoid, a group of solenoids, stand-alone, and once assembled inside an electromagnetic pump. Please look the attached figures. For the latter we conceptually thought of a CNC gantry or robotic arm with a Hall Effect probe, interfaced with a computer. The system would measure the 3 components of the magnetic field, position and time, sending these values to the computer for storage and processing. Although for 1 solenoid a vertical probe is acceptable, for the measurement inside the annulus once the solenoids are inside the pump, a horizontal position seems to be a better option. We also need to detect the edges of the solenoids (or annulus).
Design a magnetic field mapping system for 1 solenoid
Design a magnetic field mapping system for a system of 2 solenoids separated a distance L (continuation of the first task)
Design a magnetic field mapping system for the field generated in the annulus (annular section of a pipe) inside the pump and at its proximities.
