This electromagnet can be attached to a winch on a Structures crane to pick up objects. The electromagnet is powered using a Power Output Module plugged into a //control.Node.
The electromagnet includes steel washers and stickers to attach to an object so the electromagnet can pick up a non-ferrous object such as a paper cup.
Vary the power to the electromagnet by changing the duty cycle of the applied 5 volts.
