Hello everybody

i replace the slipring and the result is good for the first vaccum test.
I bought the parts in "Senring" factory in China. The ref of parts is SNF-0405.
So it's necessary to modify the hole of laser support because the part isn't exactly the same and the 4 wires are bigger.

My d5 has't that slipring. The laser unit is powered by induced power from a widing, and the trasmission seem optical via ir sender/receiver (i think timed via an ire sensor that senses the laser rotational speed (and also the angle).
So they have made the new versions a bit better.

One improvement in the Botvac makeover from the original XV was a Vorwerk lidar with optical signal coupling according to original descriptions. Maybe used in the original Vorwerk XV, VR100 compared to the Neato Robotics models. I think the Botvac lidar though, is still signal compatible with the XV and guessing can be used in XV models for replacements (the slip ring is an internal lidar part).
