Magnetometer manuals


Each AuroraWatchNet magnetometer design now has its own manual. Please select the appropriate version.

Original AuroraWatchNet magnetometer

The original design, using a Calunium microcontroller development board. There are two main variants of this design, the original one using Ciseco XRF radio modules, and a power-over-Ethernet (PoE) version. The base unit is typically a Raspberry Pi single board computer.


AuroraWatchNet Raspberry Pi magnetometer

A simplified design, where the sensor head is connected directly to a Raspberry Pi. No microcontroller is used. The sensor and Raspberry Pi are located outdoors. This design is currently in use for our Shetland magnetometer.


British Geological Survey Raspberry Pi magnetometer for schools

Similar to the AuroraWatchNet Raspberry Pi but the Pi and sensor are located indoors. More info on the school network can be found here.
