A fluxgate compass sensor consists of a ferromagnetic washer, an excitation coil and two detection coils.
Induction is created in the washer by a signal on the excitation coil. The presence of an external magnetic field (earth magnetic field) generates an additional induction on the washer and produces distortions measured by the detection coils.
This measurement is then used by the electronics
