500-600 meters tether cable usage

Hi everyone,

Has anyone used a tether cable over 500-600 meters in a real operation and have no problems communicating with the rov ? If anyone is having a any problem, can they share these problems with me ?

Thanks everyone.

Hi @nihat_keyikci, welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

Potential problems depend on the type of tether. The following two topics are likely the most relevant:

Note that fiber optic is much better than copper tether for achieving high bandwidth over long distances, but it’s also less physically robust to tight bends so requires a decent amount of extra caution when operating with or handling it.
