I am trying to see how far out a HMC5883L can detect a bar of steel. If anyone has experience using this sensor (or a better one for this task??). Please let me know.
All I want to do is Yes/no if this bar comes near the sensor. I need to know the max range this sensor can detect it.
The bar is moving at about 3MPH (1.3 MPS) in the air and there is no other metal near it.
If someone has done something similar with a different sensor or different way please let me know.
Thank you in advance.
