FAQ about Honeywell Magnetic Sensors
Q. When using the HMR3500 or HMR3601 compass I’ve started
experiencing a large heading error. What is causing this?
A. The compass may have been exposed to a large magnetic field and
the components could be retaining a magnetic field that is being
superimposed on the heading output. Refer to application note AN221
for more information.
Q. Can components on my Printed Circuit Board (PCB) bring some
perturbation to onboard magnetic sensors?
A. Yes, many components contain ferrous materials. Nickel plating
is the most common culprit and is present on lead frames of
integrated circuits and solder end caps of surface mount
components. Other components such as power transistors may have
packages with large amounts of iron in the heat spreading elements.
Also, beware of the location of NiCd (Nickel-Cadnium) batteries,
and speaker/microphone elements using permanent magnets.
