FCM Magnetic Field Study Set
The Magnetic Field Study Set, "FCM", allows the spatial study of the magnetic field in all its dimensions: calculation of magnetic field strength, lines of force, vector potential and equipotential lines, both in static and dynamic fields.
The Magnetic Field Study Set, "FCM", allows the spatial study of the magnetic field in all its dimensions (calculation of magnetic field strength, lines of force, vector potential and equipotential lines both in static and dynamic fields). For this purpose, the computer-controlled robot arm sweeps a region of space measuring the magnetic field strength at equidistant points that the student can visualize in real time through the software supplied with the Set.
This Set has been specially designed to allow the student to study and experimentally verify laws, theorems and basic principles of magnetism such as: Biot-Savart's law, Ampère's theorem, Lenz's law, the principle of superposition, etc., as well as the magnetization effects of magnetic materials: ferromagnetic, paramagnetic and diamagnetic.

- The Computer Control System with SCADA allows a real industrial simulation.
- This unit is totally safe as uses mechanical, electrical/electronic, and software safety devices.
- This unit can be used for doing applied research.
- This unit can be used for giving training courses to Industries even to other Technical Education Institutions.
- Control of the FCM unit process through the control interface box without the computer.
- Visualization of all the sensors values used in the FCM unit process.
