The company I work for supplies us with desks that have a crank on them that can be raised or lowered. It has been a running joke for some time that we are going to automate the raising and lowering with a motor.
So im working on it. Its trial and error so far. Lots of cool things im learning about. I'm beyond proof of concept and now trying to get all the pieces to work together.
Im using a SMC. The motor is a 12v Geared motor (81 RPM). I have a 24t sprocket on the motor to a 16t driven sprocket. I'm not sure how that will work yet. Im waiting for some parts to arrive before I put the electronics under load.
I will post some progress pictures and details as I go along. Your comments/suggestions are welcome.
Pics to come!
