ATK701: Orientation Magnet

A red/blue magnet for detecting the orientation of unmarked silver cube magnets

  • Manufacturer: Various
  • Product ID: Various

The neodymium cube magnets have a north south orientation and you need to put them in correctly or the MagHall component won’t give a correct reading. This magnet is not part of the control but part of your toolset and is used to test the orientation of the cube magnets.

It doesn’t have to be coloured red/blue as long as the North and South pole are clearly marked.
