What is Maximum Working Temperature of a Permanent Magnet?

Permanent magnets are widely applied in various motors, sensors/instruments and electronics, their temperatures almost vary more or less during work. These temperature variations are resulted from eddy current effect and/or ambient temperature variation. Due to thermal fluctuation and magnetic domain evolution, a permanent magnet loses some or all magnetic flux when its temperature elevates. Here comes a question, how high temperature can a permanent magnet withstand to work? For a commercial permanent magnet, the upper temperature limit is called maximum… Read More

Sintered SmCo Magnet Grades

Samarium cobalt (SmCo) magnets include 1:5 type (SmCo5) and 2:17 type (Sm2Co17) magnets. Both types of SmCo magnet grades basically include three parts, i.e. “letter 1” + “number” + “letter 2”. The three parts in sintered SmCo magnet grades present material type, (BH)max value (in CGS unit) and Hcj level, respectively. The part “letter 1” are “XG” and “XGS” for sintered SmCo5 and Sm2Co17 magnets, respectively. Besides, the Hcj levels of sintered SmCo5 magnets include “default” (Hcj ≥ 15 kOe)… Read More
