I have another newbie question. What method do you use to change, add or remove BlueROV2 payloads in the field? On the OpenROV we’re using three wire LED connectors for the three AUX wires, and it works fine. Here’s a photo of the setup. You can see that we’re also using a two wire waterproof LED connector for the tether.
If we want to add a water sampler to the ROV, we just unscrew the white connector, plug in a servo powered payload, screw it shut, and go back into the water. It is easy, fast, and can be done on the deck of a boat. I’m sure that BlueROV is using something that is more durable and rated for deeper depths, but I haven’t heard anything about exactly what you guys do or how long it takes. Exactly how do you folks change payloads on the BlueROV2s. Is this something you do in the field? How long does it take?
