We have a rotating shooter that we would like to rotate freely but wiring the power wires for the motor are going to be a huge problem. Any suggestions?
Post a picture or two of the thing, then we can see what you are up against. Otherwise, we can only imagine
Also include how far you want to rotate. There’s quite a few ways to route the wires, depending on how far the rotation is. 360* or more is where things get more difficult…
Spiral wrap and limit switches to restrict rotation to <360° is often a good starting point.
Our idea is that we want to rotate freely, preferably past 360
For that, you’ll need slip rings. Without mercury. Probably something marketed for a light duty wind mill should carry the current you need.
The 4-wire version will let you add a sensor (or two if you use CANifier or similar on a stub) at 30A.
