The Zubi Flyer Magnet Wand

The Zubi Flyer Magnet Wand

Your ZUBI FLYER has magnetic reed switches, they work kind of like light switches you flip in your house. Instead of flipping the switch with your fingers, the switch in your ZUBI FLYER is flipped by a magnet!

How does this work? Inside the magnet reed switch, two tiny metal beams are sitting very close together.  When a magnet comes in contact with the magnet reed switch, the two metal beams are attracted to each other, and they move to create contact. The metal beams’ connection closes the connected circuit! When the magnetic field is removed, the springiness of the two beams moves them apart, and the circuit is broken.

We're sort of geeking 🤓 out over the magnetic wand that goes with ZubiFlyer! 🤗

Microcontroller Specs 

The Zubi Flyer is the bomb dot com for makers: 5 PWM pins, 12 DIOs as well as hardware serial connections Rx and Tx. Running at 16MHz and 5V. The onboard switch-mode boost regulator is designed to operate on 3 Volts.  Power can be supplied from a 3 Volt CR123A battery or from a USB cable that provides regulated +5 Volts DC to the board. Do not run any power exceeding 5 Volts as the regulator cannot handle step-down voltage.
