Magnetic temperature gauges

Magnetic temperature gauges Sensor Armature Variable field coil Earth To sensor Constant field coil Needle Calibrated scale 12v power supply

The needle has a soft iron armature at its pivot, which moves by a certain amount depending on the strength of the magnetic field between the two wire-wound coils. The strength of the field depends on the size of the current passed into the coil from the sensor unit.
