1) If I have a larger ferrite band, that means i will have a larger concentration of flux within the ferrite band?
In order to place the sensor within the field, I need to embed it in the ferrite. so given (A) a ferrite band of 2in diameter with a thickness of 1/4in and a height of 1/2in and (B) a small transistor sized hall effect sensor, which of the following will yield the highest field density crossing the sensor?
a) drilling a tiny hole in the middle of the ferrite band
b) cutting a slit cleanly through the ferrite band
c) cutting a slit as in (b) but shaping the ends in an angular fashion to focus the ferrite ends at the sensor
Thank you in advance!
