Hello all,

Electromagnets: are they allowed? does anyone know of any specific restrictions on them?

That depends on your application. If you’re moving something, you’re in violation of <R53>. If you’re simply using it as a latch, you’re fine. Check the official Q&A for details.

Please review the multiple official Q&A responses on this very question in the robot materials utilization section of the Official FIRST Q&A.
