Dynamics Cart Magnetic Damping

Product Code: ME-6828


The Magnetic Damping Accessory can be used with either a Dynamics Cart or a PAScar. The steel bracket of the Accessory is attracted to the magnets built into the cart, and the bracket easily slides up and down to adjust the amount of damping. The magnetic drag is caused by the induced currents in the aluminum track, and is approximately proportional to the speed of the cart. This accessory will not work with plastic tracks!
