Few years' experience with Automatic DIFlux systems: theory, validation and results

Abstract. The previous release of our Automatic DIFlux, called AutoDIF mk2.2, is now running continuously since June 2012 in the absolute house of Dourbes magnetic observatory performing measurement every 30 minutes. A second one is working in the tunnel of Conrad observatory (Austria) since December 2013. After this proof of concept, we improved the AutoDIF to the version mk2.3 which was presented in 16th IAGA workshop in Hyderabad. Today, we have successfully deployed 6 AutoDIFs in various environments: 2 in Dourbes (DOU), 1 in Manhay (MAB), 1 in Conrad (CON), 1 in Deajeon (Korea) and 1 is used for tests. This one was installed for 10 month in Chambon-la-Foret (CLF) and since 2016 in Kakioka (KAK). In this paper, we will compare the automatic measurements with the human-made, and discuss the advantages/disadvantages of automatic measurements
