Levitation that Sustains
Hylev is a highly configurable research and testing platform for low power magnetic levitation. It uses a low-power, hybrid levitator consisting of a permanent magnet and electromagnetic coil to lift objects. The system’s configurability allows researchers to quickly swap out coils, permanent magnets, floating objects, and development boards to meet research needs. Open source and parameterized 3D models are also available to perform rapid prototyping.
