Factors Affecting Eddy Current Breaking

May 03, 2019

In this video from SuperMagnetMan we look at the main factors affecting eddy current drag: copper thickness, air gap, angular spacing, magnet orientation, and if cutting slots helps or hurts. This video helps to quantify how much each factor affects the resulting eddy current. This video focuses on copper and neodymium magnets. We have many customers that are using eddy currents in some way with their application and this video adds more precise information about this effect.
