Coding with the VEX GO Electromagnet

The VEX GO Electromagnet is used to transport Disks.


Note: In this article, the example project uses the Code Base - Eye + Electromagnet GO Build.

How the Electromagnet is Used

The Electromagnet is used to have your robot be able to pick up and drop Disks.


The [Energize electromagnet] block is used to ‘boost’ and ‘drop’ Disks.


The ‘boost’ setting allows you to pick up a Disk.


The ‘drop’ setting allows you to release a Disk.


Transport Disk Example Project

The code below will pick up and transport a Disk to a new location with the Code Base.
