Description
The MAM magnetic field instrument on EQUATOR-S consists of three-axes flux-gate
magnetometers, one mounted at the end of a 1.8-m boom, the other 50 cm further
inboard, to reduce (and determine) the amount of interference from the
spacecraft. The sampling rate is 128 vectors/s when only one of the
magnetometers is utilized, and 64 vectors/s when both are utilized. Resolution
is 16 bits, and ranges can be selected (automatically or manually) in steps of
4, between 250 and 64000 nT.
