Bi-stable mechanism is a system that has two different stable equilibrium positions within its range of motion. It has an ability to stay in two different positions without external power input and despite small disturbances. One of the most bi-stable applied mechanism is a morphing system, such as deployable structures, switch systems, and robot grippers. However, due to the complexity of mechanism and limitation of structure configuration, it is difficult to apply on a morphing system with rotating link mechanism. In this paper, an implementation method of rotational bi-stable mechanism using cylindrical permanent magnets is proposed. The magnetic field and the magnetic force were calculated from electromagnet model of the cylindrical permanent magnet. Based on the model, the force relation between two links containing the cylindrical permanent magnets was estimated. An array of cylindrical permanent magnets was selected for symmetric bi-stability, and an experiment on the link structure with the proposed bi-stable mechanism was performed to investigate the stability against a external torque.
