south pole

Materials science; Magnetics

The south pole of a magnet is the one attracted to the south pole of the earth. This south-seeking pole is identified by the letter S. By accepted convention, the lines of flux travel from the north ...

stabilization

Materials science; Magnetics

The process of exposing a magnet or a magnetic assembly to elevated temperatures or external magnetic fields to demagnetize it to a predetermined level. Once done the magnet will suffer no future ...

surface field

Materials science; Magnetics

The magnetic field strength at the surface of the magnet as measured by a Gauss meter. A comprehensive table of the surface field for all of our stock magnets is available here: Surface Field ...

surface gauss

Materials science; Magnetics

temperature coefficient

Materials science; Magnetics

A factor that is used to calculate the decrease in magnetic flux corresponding to an increase in operating temperature. The loss in magnetic flux is recovered when the operating temperature is ...

tesla

Materials science; Magnetics

The S.I. unit for magnetic induction (flux density). One Tesla equals 10,000 Gauss.

weber

Materials science; Magnetics

The S.I. unit for total magnetic flux. The practical unit of magnetic flux. It is the amount of magnetic flux which, when linked at a uniform rate with a single-turn electric circuit during an ...
