MATS-2010M — AC Hysteresisgraph

General Information:

AC Hysteresis Loop: Automatic measurement of the dynamic magnetic hysteresis loop of oriented and non-oriented stalloy under the condition of 50 Hz, 60 Hz, 400 Hz and 1 kHz. Accurately measures static magnetic characteristics such as amplitude permeability μa, loss angle δ, specific total loss Ps, remanence Br and coercivity Hc. With special testing fixture, it can directly measure the iron core and stator core of the transformer.

Conforms to international standard IEC 404-2, IEC 60404-3, IEC 60404-6.



  • Various testing samples: hot and cold rolling stalloy materials, permalloy, amorphous and nano-crystal.
  • Sample shapes: ribbon- and chip-shaped open samples; toroid, E- and U-shaped closed samples.
  • Epstein Square and optional permeameter are usde for open samples to form closed magnetic field;
  • Direct winding for closed samples: sample material, magnetizing coil (N1) and measuring coil (N2) to form a no-load transformer.
  • Non-inductive resistance connected to the magnetizing coil loop is used to determine the magnetic field intensity via voltage drop of the resistance. Its precision to capture magnetic field is up to 0.5%.
  • Obtains field induction through digital integrator of voltage in the coil. Its precision to capture magnetic fields is up to 0.5%.
  • Adopt volammetry and digital integrator to measure dynamic hysteresis loop and dynamic magnetic characteristic parameters, such as μa, δ, Ps, Br and Hc, etc.
  • Select different power supplies: 45 Hz ~ 1 kHz, 400 Hz ~ 10 kHz or customized frequency range.
  • Automatic and continuous measurement up to 255 testing points, the testing time of each testing point is about 30 seconds with optional fixed frequency, Bm or Hm.
