Like the MFG-100, the MagnebotiX OctoMag magnetic field generator offers five-degree-of-freedom (5-DOF) wireless magnetic control (3-DOF position and 2-DOF pointing orientation) but in a larger working volume. Forces and torques can be applied independently on magnetic materials on the micrometer to mm scale. Closed-loop control of microobjects can be handled in 3D using a dual camera system. The OctoMag is delivered with a wheeled stand that provides easy positioning in the lab. The inner, self-contained coil unit can be inclined at up to 45 degrees to facilitate experimental access to the magnetic workspace, or can be removed from the stand and incorporated into a dedicated experimental setup in the laboratory.
