Hi, I’m about to build my second Proffie-based saber, and have a few questions where I would appreciate input.
This design will be based around a v3.9 board as I’d like to take advantage of the native USB charging.
I’ll also be implementing a rotary encoder that has a built-in momentary switch.
Can anyone see any issues with my proposed wiring or make any suggestions?
Given that the charging port will be a USB C port exposed by the hilt, there is no in-built kill switch (like a barrel connector has). Ideally I’d like a saber that I can just charge/flash using the hilt’s USB C, without the need to unscrew the grip to engage a slide-switch style kill switch. Is my design suitable for this use? Can I safely omit the physical kill-switch for the USB charging?
My design wires the encoder’s push-switch to BT1, and the rotary pins to BT2 and BT3. I believe this is fine, but please let me know if there’s any issues with this.
The rotary encoder requires a positive for the encoder’s 2x pullup pins. Is the 3.3v pin on the Proffie board the best to use for this as illustrated in my diagram?
Lastly, I have a couple of suggestions for the website’s configurator pages:
- It would be good to have a option of USB charging + data port (Currently only has barrel connector)
- It would be good to have an option for a rotary encoder in the buttons dropdown.
Thanks in advance!
