Measurement performance of our new 10-inch VSM — read the app note

For researchers requiring higher applied magnetic fields than our 4- and 7-inch 8600 Series VSMs, we now offer a 10-inch electromagnet version (Model 8610). Providing fields as high as 3.6 T (>36 kOe), it is particularly ideal for characterizing permanent magnet materials, such as rare-earth NdFeB magnets, which typically require large fields to saturate and demagnetize the materials.
