A real-time, Hall-probe automatic measurement system was developed at the Synchrotron Radiation Research Center (SRRC) for the magnetic field measurement of the "C"-type rectangular combined function bending magnet, multipole magnets, and the insertion device magnets. The sampling rate on the x-y-z table with dynamic moving speed of 15 cm/s can be up to 200 samples/s, and the precision is within /spl plusmn/0.01%. A PC is used as a system controller which connects instrument function cards with instruments via the PC bus and an IEEE-488 interface card. An inexpensive, stable within /spl plusmn/15 ppm current source is produced to supply a high-stability constant current for the Hall probe; a temperature controller maintains the Hall probe temperature within /spl plusmn/0.2/spl deg/C. The system's software has been divided into different modules that can be connected into a network global data base. System testing has shown that the magnetic field measurement accuracy of this system is better than /spl plusmn/25 ppm in the static measurement.
