DAY 1:

To Do:

  • Design a mount/platform for the larger pull force electromagnets
    • Design must allow some adjustability for IR LED and PhotoDiode
    • Possibly Include a additional Photodiodes for better readings
  • Try incorporating a current sensor to the current board to allow for stable current (less heat) to the electromagnet
  • Redesign PCB
    • Allow for Larger Voltages (and wire thicknesses from the solenoid)
    • Allow for either relay or transistor power output
    • Include current sensing for the solenoid
    • Include trim pot to adjust timing/sensitivity of the photodiode
