The quality of numerical simulations decisively depends on the used material models and their parameters. Only with good model descriptions, the behavior of components such as sensors and actuators can reliably be computed ahead. If magnetic materials are highly driven, which is necessary for an efficient use of an actuator material, hysteresis phenomena can no longer be ignored. Therefore, models are needed which can map this hysteresis phenomena, as well as correct values for the model parameters. Therefore, measurement techniques are necessary for the reliable determination of these model parameters. This paper discusses a measurement setup for magnetic vector hysteresis, the vector vibrating sample magnetometer (VVSM). The measurement setup is compared with other measurement methods. Furthermore, the parameters for a new vectorial hysteresis model are determined. The new model proposed by us is based on the classic Preisach model of hysteresis. This scalar model is extended by a rotation operator which maps a direction to each Preisach weight. The model is tested by comparing its performance to the VVSM measurements for different materials.
