    Default Using Lights on the Winfield Ferris Wheel

    Hi Everyone

    I was wondering how to use lights on the Ferris Wheel. Some people told me I can use a slip ring. Could anyone tell me how to make one that would not dangerous as the wires are in open. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Dennis

    Cool Re: Using Lights on the Winfield Ferris Wheel

    I built my a couple months ago and i use 2 slip rings, one carries power + and - and the other just data. That was my prototype. I am in the process of making one out of aluminium. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLb-K9o0q0E&t=338s

    These need 240 volts?

    If you want to use it for a Ferris Wheel to carry people, then you must make sure they are UL certified. I used slip ring on my Ferris Wheel (7" diameter 12 Volts dc 20amp.) and carries only Stuffed animals. It is rated 240 Volt (wind turbine slip ring) http://www.ebay.com/itm/Capsule-Slip...MAAOSwKfVXF4~7
    You must do your home work to make sure it is safe for whatever it is you are going to use it.
