Abstract: A scientific instrument which measures the magnetic field strength and its direction is known as Magnetometer. In this article a three axis Fluxgate Magnetometer is constructed by using simple ring core and simple drive circuits instead of specialized components like Hall Effect sensors. This type of Fluxgate magnetometers is working on the principle of magnetic flux linking a coil depends on the orientation of the coil with respect to the earth’s magnetic field lines. Here the three single axis fluxgate magnetometers are designed and placed perpendicular to each other on a board. The circuit is designed to produce 100 KHz frequency and to measure the Magnetic field in the range up to 7 Tesla. The sensitivity is tested through an external electromagnet. The readings are obtained in LAB-VIEW platform and the three-axis data is displayed.
