    MAGNET LEVITATION EXPERIMENT

    I use a coil (450 r-0.5 mm) a hall sensor inside the coil and a mosfet as a switch for the current to the coil. The diode protects the mosfet from the back emf of the coil. A resistance controls the current to the base of the mosfet. The coil attracts the magnet , then when the supply stops the magnet begin to fall , the supply to the coil begin again and attracts the magnet again .This happens many times per second and the magnet seems to stay in the same place.
    I try to find a shematic for the opposite effect. The object that levitates to be up and the electromagnet to be down.I' ve seen a system of 4 coils and 2 hall sensor but I cannot find it's shematic .Doew anyone can help? Thank you. You can watch this experiment here:

    Ingenious use of the Hall sensor. Kind of the "Segway" of magnetic levitation, eh?

    K and J Magnetics had a blog post a while back where they built the inverted setup with ratiometric sensors, but they didn't provide a detailed schematic. I get quite a few hits when searching for "repulsive electromagnetic levitation schematic," but there are about as many ways to go about doing it as there are people building them.

    I 've found two shematics but there are a few correctionts from other vewers so i am not so sure that they are right.

    I wonder if the circuitry commonly used for switching power supplies couldn't be used – or adapted – to work with that set up? (Just a thought.)
