An electromagnetic sensing device, MagStar, has been developed by authors, measure both magnetic hysteresis loop and magnetic Barkhausen emission. The device explains its credibility for characterizing different types steels, SA213T22 and IF steel with varying microstructural phases treated at different heat treatment conditions. MagStar is also very versatile to be applicable for both industries and educational research due to its portability and low cost.
