How do I properly power my electromagnet? Answered
I just purchased an electromagnet from Amazon for a small prop for an upcoming play I am directing. Now my problem is... I do not have a clue as to how to supply the power to it. It needs to be able to run steady for roughly 3 hours. What size batteries would I need -the smaller the better in terms of size since the prop itself is not that large, ut will do whatever is necessary to function properly.
Here is the only information the electromagnet had attached to it:
Electric lifting magnet
Powerful and compact
Smooth and flat surface
Low consumption and reliable
Applications: assembly line, sorting machine, mechanical arm, experimental facility, etc
Input Voltage: 12V DC
Lifting Force :20N
Overall Size : 15 x 15 mm /0.6 x 0.6 inch(Dia. *T)
Thread DIA : 3mm
Lead Length : 24cm/9. 5 inch"
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advanced!
