  • Magnet For Beacon

    If I had a ring with a magnet strip on the inside of it (with the south pole facing the beacon) to slip onto the beacon, would it be able to activate the beacon?

    Frances It should work as long as the magnet is within range of the Hall Effect Sensor. This is the idea of bright students, right? Since this is an engineering project, you should not take my word for it, but rather use the engineering process to determine if the proposed solution gives the desired results. It does sound like a solid idea.
