Team Vision for Integrated System Build & Test Phase

Summarize: In this phase our team originally set out to finish both the 3D printing and soldering while taking great strides with respect to construction and software development.

During this phase our team was able to finish 3D printing, coil detailing, and construction. Progress was also made with respect to software development an soldering.

Software

Power Supply

There was successful communication between the power supply and PC using MATLAB. The power supply outputs were controlled from MATLAB using a simple script. The power supply code can now go through further development.

Initial Testing

The apparatus was setup and inital testing was performed. The results can be seen in the video here.

Initially you can see the testing apparatus and the power supply it is attached to. A magnetometer is shown in the middle of the apparatus. Then a single pair of coils is turned on at a time. The magnetometer records the readings and graphs them on a 3D space. The results show each coil pair produces a a change in magnetic field in one direction as desired.

Some screenshots displaying the results can be seen below. Again, the three distinct axes can be seen.
