Abstract:
The exact geometric location of the magnetic centers of sensors or sensor systems using Hall probes or pick-up coils is usually not known with high precision. In order to transfer the high spatial accuracy of magnetic measurements to external mechanic fiducials a device called “Magnetic Landmark” was developed and is described in this report. Its purpose is to establish the exact relation between “magnetic” coordinates used on magnetic measurement systems and “mechanic” coordinates used for alignment. The landmark consists of a permanent magnet configuration, which generates a field distribution with well-defined zero crossings in two orthogonal directions, which can be exactly localized with micrometer precision using magnetic measurement systems. For the “mechanic” measurements several redundant monuments for laser fiducials can be used. Using flip tests for the magnetic as well as mechanic measurements the center positions are determined in magnetic and mechanic coordinates. Using them the relation between the magnetic and surveying coordinates can be established with high accuracy. This report concentrates on the description of the landmark. A thorough analysis on achievable accuracy is presented. The method was developed for the alignment of the 91 undulator segments needed for the European XFEL but can be applied to other magnet systems as well.
