Hi all!
Since a while I'm a bit boried to use magnets on me when perform.
I was thinking to use a remote controlled electromagnet while I'm far from the table to switch on devices that need a pk.
Do anyone know where I can buy something similar?
Many thanks!

Good luck Prof. That is a closely guarded secret. If you find out though, please let me know too. Smile

Outlaw Effects may have something that will fill that bill...

You should be aware that electromagnet fields behave very differently to the field thrown by permanent magnets. You should do some research on this.

Electromagnets should be powered with direct current (DC), especially by batteries. Alternating current produces a reversing magnetic field and likely also will cause hum from the vibrations in the electromagnet. Magnets can draw a high current. Some batteries will overheat or even explode under such conditions. You need to contact someone with electrical engineering experience to advise you.

I mention batteries because AC to DC converters often produce DC with a ripple that might cause a hum in a very quiet room. All of Outlook Effects apparatus run off batteries.

Very little is written about electromagnets regarding the number of windings in conjunction to the power, etc. Experimentation is your best friend here, if you are wrong with too much dc voltage it may over heat..keep trying.

Just ordered something from Outlaw Effects that I'm VERY excited about....Closest thing I can imagine to that elusive "real magic," at a distance! Seems to me that electromagnets are terribly underutilized in our field.

Look at my things on - many of them can be adapted.
