System of three pairs of square coils mutually orthogonal to each other (Helmholtz cage) simulates the magnetic field as it changes during the orbital flight the satellite. Coils’ maximum dimensions are 2m, 1,9m, and 1.8m.
By inducing current in coil’s wires the magnetic field is created and its direction and value depend on the amperage
|Maximum amplitude of the generated field, excluding the Earth’s magnetic field||150 000 nTl|
|Possible direction of the magnetic field vector||With no restrictions|
|Diameter of uniformity zone||600 mm|
|Specificity of the magnetic field change||Not more than 50 nT|
