I am doing a project involving system similar to that of Ferris Wheel
It needs to rotate at very low speeds, preferably, 1rev/hr or 2 rev/hr
It also needs to stop when the "box" or "capsule" reach the maximum height and hold it there. , i.e. similar to the passenger carrying components in Ferris Wheel.
My solution 1. Since holding is required, a stepper motor will be a good choice. 2. A gears or pulley might be used.
My problem 1. How to step down the speed of the stepper motor to that of 1 rev per hr, from what speed should I step the motor down, and how?
- Seems like its going to be a huge reduction ratio. How a pulley or gear can be used in this case? Is there any other suggestion?
