An Arduino-Based Magnetometer
McCaughey, Mike
Physics Teacher, v55 n5 p274-275 May 2017
An Arduino-based system with a triple axis magnetometer chip may be used to plot both the strength and direction of the magnetic field of a magnet directly on a sheet of paper. Before taking measurements, it is necessary either to correct for or to eliminate soft and hard iron effects. The same sensor may be used to determine the presence of soft iron effects.
