Arduino Chicken Coop Door Gearmotor Rotary Encoder Knob version

Arduino Chicken Coop Door Gearmotor Rotary Encoder Knob version

Work in progress / under construction

if you have a gearmotor without an encoder
you could add a rotary encoder to the gear output shaft
insert 1 side of 3D printed diabolo to gearmotor
and insert a rotary encoder knob in diabolo's other side
Not so much counts per rotation
But i think it will work
Only 1 HomeSwitch needed then
Later in the ProgramCode this HomeSwitch is used as Failure OverTravel switch

Nylon KiteWire / VliegerTouw on 3d printed diabolo for moving the sliding door up / down

Not sure if rotary encoder knob will survive chicken shit vapours over a long time
i think there are copper contacts in this rotary encoder
i think i have heard once that they do not use copper piping in cow stables
because the amonia from the shit oxidizes the copper
well we have the home switch for failure detecting

Waiting for a rotary encoder knob from my Cheap Chinese Friends in ShenZhen GuangDong China

Work in Progress / Under Construction
