Made some drawings up. I am a bit concerned that water refraction will cause the camera to see the brackets when zoomed out.
For the brackets, I am planning on using: https://www.bluerobotics.com/store/watertight-enclosures/enclosure-clamp-4-series/
These really give a lot of flexibility for mounting the camera.
My Wiring is going as follow:
1 - Network 1
2 - Network 2
3 - Network 3
4 - Network 4
5 - GND
6 - Power (12VDC)
7 - Power (5VDC
8 - Tilt Signal
I am using a piece of tether at the moment which is being potted but a cable with more conductors would be nice.
I also realized that I got 3inch end plates so I will need to buy 4 inch plates and the bracket before I can complete this project.
I used a terminal strip on the motor side for wiring and another idea came to me.
The camera could be used as a network hub for other cameras or peripherals using this network hub in the other side:
I could use wire 7 for a second Tilt Signal and use a 5V regulator hooked on the 12V line. Nothing stoppng you from connecting more than one tilt on the same tilt signal. EX: you are making boom cameras for inspection or you are pairing one with the an aft camera for tether monitoring.
This would allow to use only 1 penetrator on the main BR2 pod for several camera.
You can also apply the same technique on a smaller tube if you are using smaller cameras.
Here are some planned usage for the new camera housing:
A 3 inch housing version would probably sit in nicely as a manip camera.
