I started work on my test slip ring tonight and hope to get it installed in the next few days and report back on a new group order.
The sample slip ring has eighteen 2A circuits and I plan on grouping together 6 or 8 for the +/- 12VDC uplink to the dome, leaving ten circuits for PWM/servo signals. To save on circuits I’m not planning on routing the +/- 5VDC from each of the PWM pairs through the slip ring. As a result each RC channel will require just one wire allocated on the slip ring. I’ll just tap of the 12VDC in the dome and re-create a separate 5VDC supply for the servos.
Out of the box the slip ring wires are loose and really needed protecting.
I bought some braided expandable nylon wire wrap from a local surplus electronics store for less than a dollar.
I wrapped the ends in electrical tape to hold things in place.
Now that I have the wire wrap in place I can start soldering the wires to the connectors.
Here’s an overview video on how I plan to implement the wiring
