I Electromagnet Model

  1. Nov 21, 2018 #1
    Couple questions concerning this design:
    - Would the object sit relatively still? As I assume in this design the magnet would not have to switch on and off repeatedly (as it would with traditional magnetic levitation) as there is a physical force applied to it?
    - I'm guessing the rubber barrier of 10cm affect the strength of the magnetic field as the impedance will increase, what equations would be required to calculate the total current needed, no. of coils etc. to produce this force at a distance of 1m with this barrier?
    Ignore the position sensor that is for my reference :)

    Thanks for the thread! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post? The more details the better.
