Cameflex Synch Motors

Thought I'd start up a thread for my Cameflex synch motor experiments. Here are the latest photos of the new design for anyone that is interested:

The new one is next to a Type 24 to show actual size comparison. Need to tweak it a bit as I'd like to use a push button instead of of a flip switch. The worm gear is a test print for the moment. Will be sorting out the gearing at the precision engineers next week and getting the new motors for the precision speed tests.

Cheers

Marek

Almost done. Have cracked the speed control and am working with a precision engineer to make up the motor drive connector.

This is the latest size and design for you to have a look at. I'll be getting a few non-synch (as close to synch as possible) 24fps and 25fps motors out soon for anyone that is interested.

Cheers

Marek

I was thinking about giving out a couple for testing. One is definitely going to you. I think I'll give one to Larry in New York as well.

I'll be in touch once I've reconfigure the case  and done the engineering. I spent months waiting for a precision engineer to get back to me. I've found someone new who is interested in the project.

Price wise, they be going out for about £500 plus shipping.

I'm working with an engineer in Turkey to make a crystal synch version. He's already worked out stable PID using a TI Tiva board. I'll ask him to design a stand alone solution using the latest technology available as all the solutions currently available use chips that aren't made any more.

However, we might not need to do that if the testing goes well tomorrow.  

I'll keep you posted.

Cheers

Marek

That is most excellent!

Thank you Marek, for all your hard work, and you finally did it !

I would love to test out the new motor. Just received my newly coated mirror and prisms, installed the shutter and looks much brighter already. Very excited to run some film through it. 
 

Can’t wait to see your results as well. 
 

Cheers!
