readMagneticField

Read the magnetic field measured by the Magnetometer along the x, y and z axis

Description

example

magField = readMagneticField(mysh) returns the magnetic field measured by the Magnetometer along the x, y, and the z axes.

The unit of measurement for the Magnetometer raw data is microtesla (µT).

example

[magField,Ts] = readMagneticField(mysh) returns the magnetic field measured by the Magnetometer along the x, y, and the z axes with timestamp. The unit of measurement for the Magnetometer field is microtesla (µT).

example

magFieldRaw = readMagneticField(mysh,raw) returns the magnetic field measured by the Magnetometer along the x, y, and the z axes. The ‘raw’ argument is to specify that the output should be a uncalibrated raw data.

example

[magFieldRaw,Ts]= readMagneticField(mysh,raw) returns the magnetic field measured by the Magnetometer along the x, y, and the z axes with timestamp. The ‘raw’ argument is to specify that the output should be a uncalibrated raw data.

The full scale range for the Magnetometer is +/- 4 gauss.
