Magnetic measurements are among the main to create as " warm " and cryogenic - electrophysical equipment using magnitnme field. Small size generators e.m.f. Hall (GH) are a huge advantage among other magnetometric devices / 1 /, which determines their widespread use for magnetic measurements in Electrophysics.

When measuring the strong fields one of the major sources of error is the effect of temperature on the output of the GH, which is slightly on the background of a relatively large output signal. For example, in the field of 2 T GH output may reach 200 mV while changing the temperature by 1 C, changes the output signal of several microvolts. Also at this level the effect of temperature signals composed additively from the main signal, and can be compensated by methodically, especially in the cryogenic region, wherein the liquid helium is a great temperature stabilizer, and the fields are high. When measuring high field requires specific attention and minimize the planar components of the gradient of the output signal GH / 2 /.
In weak magnetic fields at low output signals GH stronger the additional sources of error., Such as thermoelectric ( Seebeck, Peltier ) effects, the effect of their own fields, properties and homogeneity of the material used / 3 /. Therefore, for example, to measure the magnetic field distribution in the central region of the quadrupole magnet is required to apply special measures.
In both cases it is also important to minimize errors, a calibration orientation.
The purpose was to obtain as limiting the absolute sensitivity of the Hall generators when measuring weak magnetic fields , as well as accurate and stable measurement of strong fields.
This paper describes the results of the development of devices based on magnetometric Hall generators for measuring weak magnetic fields at the Earth's field, including both the design optimization, manufacturing technology and electrical properties of the GH, and a set of circuit design, design, teaching activities aimed at yaizhenie high precision and absolute sensitivity.
Also described are designed destabilized tlzehkomponentnye magnetic field sensors.

3 . RU3 - precision measurements, the highest resolution.
4 . PN4 - three-component magnetic field sensors (based on the RU ) for precision measurements of bulk fields.
