Magnetic Terms

Maximum Energy Product (WxH)

The flux density’s maximum energy product and field strength are important magnetic material qualities. If the energy production is high, meaning, the magnetic energy is also high. On the other hand, the higher the maximum energy product of a magnetic material, the more certain tasks will require a lower magnetic volume.

Coercivity Hc

It refers to field force that is important for magnetization elimination. If the coercivity value is higher, it is more resistant to magnetization.

Remanence Br

It is the magnetic material’s residual magnetization up to a closed circle’s saturation. Remanence is stated in Millitesla (mT), Tesla (T), and Gauss (G).

Operating Temperature

It refers to the highest temperature that a magnet can be exposed without compromising to its magnetic power permanent loss. The operating temperature depends on the dimensioning. Factors such as chemical or mechanical stress limit a magnet’s maximum operating temperature.

Curie Temperature

It refers to the temperature at which magnetic material loses its magnetism.
