Magnetic Levitator with Arduino and PID

Magnetic Levitator with Arduino and PID

Arduino controlled Magnetic Levitator

This magnetic levitator is based off of a model described by Simon Monk in his book 15 Dangerously Mad projects for the Evil Genius. (Monk, Simon. 15 Dangerously Mad Projects for the Evil Genius. New York: McGraw-Hill, 2011. Print.) The changes from the original design are a 3D printed frame and a PID algorithm to control the magnet’s levitation. A write up of the full explanation can be shown here.
