PostSubject: Slip Rings   Thu Jun 01, 2017 3:32 pm

So I'm looking at slip ring systems now that my kids rotated my KV-1's turret so many times that they pulled out several of the turret connections on the clark board (Servo Recoil/Basic LED Gun Flash)...

So I'm compiling what is needed for our battle ready tanks.
Required
IR System - 7 Wires
  • 3 for IR Receiver (+ve, -ve, Sig)
  • 2 for IR Emitter (+ve, -ve)
  • 2 for Hit LED's (+ve, -ve)

Elevation - 2 or 3 Wires
  • Unidirectional motor (aka HL) = 2 (+ve, -ve)
  • Or Servo = 3 (+ve, -ve, Sig)

Optional
Recoil - 2 or 3 Wires
  • Airsoft/Recoil = 2 (+ve, -ve)
  • Servo Recoil = 3 (+ve, -ve, Sig)

Simulated Gun Flash
  • LED Basic = 2 (+ve, -ve)
  • HV Flash Unit = 3 (+ve, -ve, Sig)


SO if you want all the options...
You are looking at a minimum of 13 wires... I've only seen them go up to 14 and be price competitive...

I'm looking at making a couple for my tanks...
IR Battle system, Stock Elevation, Servo Recoil & Basic Flash = 14 wires... And to make them a plug and play setup...
If you can find me ones that have 16-18 and are cost effective, please let me know...

Let me know too on the slip rings. The only reason I haven't done them yet is exactly, they don't have enough wires...

For kids tank it is probably better to leave the original 320 degree ring in. Much simpler.

Tiger when did you post this ? Do you have a picture ? I might be interested in the recoil if it is Clark.

Kids are going to get the Jagdpanthers to screw around with.. Less issue with Turrets Smile

I found these:


They are about $25USD each though... 18 wires

I might have a couple I need to get rid of. Let me see if they are 18s and you can have them for $10 each.
