We determine accurate masses and radii for the components with errors of 0.7% and 1.3%, as follows: MA=1.0038±0.0066 M, MB=0.5955±0.0022 M, RA=0.980±0.013 R, and RB=0.5873±0.0067 R. The effective temperatures are 5890±100 K (G1 V) and 3880±120 K (M1 V), respectively. A detailed chemical analysis probing more than 20 elements in the primary spectrum shows the system to have a slightly subsolar abundance, with [Fe/H]=-0.12±0.08. A comparison with theory reveals that standard models underpredict the radius and overpredict the temperature of the secondary, as has been found previously for other M dwarfs. On the other hand, models from the Dartmouth series incorporating magnetic fields are able to match the observations of the secondary star at the same age as the primary (∼3 Gyr) with a surface field strength of 2.1±0.4 kG when using a rotational dynamo prescription, or 1.3±0.4 kG with a turbulent dynamo approach, not far from our empirical estimate for this star of 0.83±0.65 kG. The observations are most consistent with magnetic fields playing only a small role in changing the global properties of the primary. The V530 Ori system thus provides an important demonstration that recent advances in modeling appear to be on the right track to explain the long-standing problem of radius inflation and temperature suppression in low-mass stars. Description: V530 Ori was monitored spectroscopically with three different instruments over a period of more than 17 yr. Observations began at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) in 1996 June with a Cassegrain-mounted echelle spectrograph ("Digital Speedometer", DS; Latham 1992ASPC...32..110L) attached to the 1.5 m Tillinghast reflector at the F. L. Whipple Observatory (Mount Hopkins, AZ). We gathered a further 30 spectra of V530 Ori at the Kitt Peak National Observatory (KPNO) from 1999 March to 2001 January, using the coude-feed telescope and the coude spectrometer. Finally, 41 additional observations were obtained at the CfA from 2009 November to 2014 March with the Tillinghast Reflector Echelle Spectrograph (TRES; Furesz 2008, PhD thesis , Univ. Szeged, Hungary) on the 1.5 m telescope mentioned earlier. Two sets of V-band images of V530 Ori were obtained with independent robotic telescopes operating at the University of Arkansas (URSA WebScope) and near Silver City, NM (NFO WebScope) from 2001 January to 2012 February. Differential photometric measurements of V530 Ori were also gathered with the Stromgren Automatic Telescope at ESO (La Silla, Chile), during several campaigns from 2001 January to 2006 February.

Adopted uncertainties for the photographic, visual, and photoelectric/CCD measurements with no published errors are 0.028, 0.011, and 0.0001 days, respectively. Other errors have been scaled by iterations during the ephemeris fit by factors of 1.8 and 2.9 for the primary and secondary (see text).
