Digi-Key Magnets and Surface Gauss


#1

When you are looking at magnets on the Digi-Key web site you will see a surface gauss strength rating on many of the magnets. This rating is a result of a calculation using the magnetic material, magnet diameter and thickness in round magnets. Magnetic material, length, width and thickness in square or rectangular magnets.

Since you are comparing magnets with the surface gauss calculated you can compare strength values based off gauss values and not based only on size, as larger magnets will not always give a higher surface gauss value.

Radial Magnet, one of Digi-Key suppliers, has a Magnet Calculator available on their site as well. This can be extremely helpful for calculating strength when adding magnets together. ie. if you take two magnets that are 10mm diameter and 4mm in thickness and stack them you will have the strength of a magnet that is 10mm in diameter and 8mm in thickness.
