Which Gauss Meter?
If you’re not sure which Gauss Meter to choose, this should clarify which one is best for your application. The GM07 and GM08 Gauss Meters offer the same ranges of measurements and the same key functions. Both are compatible with all of the Hall probes and Fluxgate probes currently on offer. However, there are some differences that will make one more suitable for your application than the other.
The GM07 is an entry level Gauss Meter at great value for money. The GM07 is ideal for spot-checking applications on the shop floor where records are not required or are easy to create manually. The GM07 will hold up to 100 saved readings, but there is no way to export data.
The main difference between the Hirst Gauss Meters is that the GM08 has a number of interface options, allowing the user to create documents, change menu settings more easily and even control the Gauss Meter using a PC. The GM08 can record up to 100 readings at once using the hold and save options in the menu. These are time stamped and easily exported, meaning spreadsheets of data can be automatically created using the GM08 software options. Data can be downloaded to Excel or OpenOffice spreadsheets or to a CSV format file.Drivers for Labview are available to download here.
The GM08 also has an external power connection for constant use without the worry of batteries running low. The GM08 is well suited to desk-top use, laboratories and even rugged shop floors where readings are taken frequently through the day and need to be recorded.
