Compass and magnetic field module sensors are specialized devices created to identify and react to the existence of a magnetic field. Within this category, there are specific items tailored for dead reckoning, digital compass, or digital magnetometer applications in the X, Y, and Z axes. These sensors play a crucial role in measuring heading, pitch, roll, as well as the strength and direction of a magnetic field within a measuring range of ±0.9 gauss, ±1 gauss, ±180µT, ±2 gauss, or ±700 mgauss.
These sensors are commonly utilized in various fields such as navigation systems, aerospace, robotics, and consumer electronics. They provide accurate and reliable data for tasks involving orientation determination, motion tracking, and magnetic field strength measurement. Their ability to measure magnetic fields across multiple axes makes them essential components in applications requiring precise spatial awareness and magnetic field detection.
