SLS offers our customers a compact, three-axis magnetic field derivative (B-dot) sensor for simultaneously detecting the horizontal and vertical components of lightning-radiated magnetic fields. These custom sensors are packaged in a rugged housing that will withstand prolonged exposure to harsh environmental conditions. Our 3-axis B-dot sensors are currently being used to detect lightning signals on NASA’s Mobile Launch Tower and inside NASA’s Orion crew capsule. The 3-axis B-dot sensor specifications are given below:
|Construction:||Fiberglass housing, 6061 aluminum base|
|Mounting:||Vertical, horizontal, pole-mount|
|Connectors:||Female N-type (6x)|
|Bandwidth:||> 25 MHz (-3 dB)|
