Abstract

The construction of a triaxial fluxgate sensor with very high axis stability and low temperature coefficients is described. The axis orthogonalities change less than 2.1 s of are in the whole testing temperature range +20 to -10 degrees C. The temperature coefficients for the sensitivities of the three axes are 6.7, 10.1 and 13.3 ppm K-1, respectively. This high stability is achieved by using a newly developed ceramic, C-SiC, as the supporting construction material. (C) 1997 Elsevier Science S.A.
