Ok, I am sure I am not the first perso that has thought of this, but here is a very strange idea.
I would need some serious help with it though if anyone if game.
Has anyone ever thought of driving a stepper motor with relays instead of transistors?
I know it wouldnt be able to go fast as all because of the slow action of relays, but imagine how cool it would look and sound.
I would love to make a demonstration piece like this if it is in fact possible.
I would like to find clear relays as well so you can see through the case and see them working.
I am thinking something like a three dialed clock with seperate dials for hour, minute and seconds using 3 seperate steppers.
possibly at least one of each a unipolar and a bi polar if I could make them each work.
I need help and opinions of if you think this would work
And would probably need help coding this as well, but I think I could figure that out, it should be a pretty simple code.
