Change performance

(Saif) #1

What if we wanna change the autonomy of the bluerov2 to 12 hours what are the changes that can be made on the robot?

Hello, the best ways to increase autonomy are either using larger batteries or power over tether.

For larger batteries you will need to modify the ROV, most likely with an additional enclosure for a larger battery. The larger battery will likely affect some flight characteristics as well.

The power over tether is something we have a lot of users asking about and coming up with their own solutions. This has the potential of giving you unlimited autonomy. But please keep in mind that most of these solutions use higher AC voltage to transfer power, which can be very dangerous specially around water or wet components.

Thnx😊

Is better to put other battery’s in parallel with the the first one to multiply autonomy

Hi, if you choose the multiple batteries route, they should be wired in parallel. You need to be careful so they are at close voltages, otherwise they could be damaged. It should work fine if you always charge them both at the same time and use them together.
