Magnetic Suspension – How it works.

Unlike a ordinary permanent magnet which is made up of a physical object having a single north and south pole, the ParaNetic magnet is not a physical object and is best described as a “projected” or “virtual magnet”.  In addition to it not being physical, a ParaNetic magnet has two north poles with a single south pole sandwiched in-between.

Due to the virtual nature of the ParaNetic magnetic field, it is now possible to gain access to the location(s) of the magnetic field where the north and south poles change polarity.  This is simply not possible with an ordinary permanent magnet as this location exists inside the magnet itself.

The “virtual” ParaNetic magnet has two locations where the transition boundary between the north and south pole can be accessed as denoted by (Position 1) and (Position 2).

Ordinary permanent magnets (shown as permanent magnet 1 and permanent magnet 2) will suspend themselves at these two boundary locations with perfect fidelity, providing the foundation for building devices such as transducers, speakers, microphones, and valves.

By placing Piezoelectric material between the two suspended magnets, virtually any form of wave energy, pressure, weight or g-force can be measured.

This is accomplished by measuring the electric current produced by the Piezoelectric material as wave energy presses against the receiver plate or cone causing the Piezoelectric material to be squeezed between the two suspended permanent magnets.

The squeezing of the piezoelectric material occurs as energy presses on the receiver cone or plate causing both of the suspended magnets and the piezoelectric material to be pushed deeper into the ParaNetic field.

The combination of the force pushing on the receiver cone or plate (connected to permanent magnet 1) and the ParaNetic magnetic field pulling permanent magnet 2 back into place, causes the piezoelectric material to be squeezed and a current to be produced.

The instant the force pushing on the receiver cone or plate stops, the suspended magnets will stop squeezing the piezoelectric material and return to their original positions with perfect fidelity.

Because the “piezoelectric sandwich” is suspended in the ParaNetic magnetic field, there is nothing like a (spring or spider) impeding the fidelity of movement back and forth.  The 100% “registration fidelity” makes the ParaNetic Magnet the perfect base platform for building ultra sensitive transducers, microphones, measuring scales, G-force sensors, vibration detection, plus much more.
