VL6180X Time-of-Flight Distance Sensor - magnetic levitation

I. recently purchased one e VL6180X Time-of-Flight Distance Sensor Carrier, because I wan to try it with this magnetic levitation device that I made:


My intention is to put it on the bottom of the electromagnet. Is there any hint or issue that I should take into account? (I will protect it with foam, leaving a “hole” for the readings.

Regards,

Jose

Hi, Jose.

Your levitation device looks pretty cool! We have not tried using one of those sensors close to a magnet, so unfortunately, we do not have any advice. If you try it though, please let us know how it goes!
