Connecting T200 thruster motor to gear train?

The T200 has a great underwater motor. I want to hook it up to a gear train to run a winch, while using external control to ensure I don’t exceed the 4000 RPM limit or the power limit.

Are there any guides on using the T200 with gears or similar attachments instead of the propeller?

Since I don’t need the propeller or shrouding, should I buy just the ROV core instead of the whole thruster?

Assuming you’re making your own rotor, that’s likely the best option at this point, yes.

We used to sell the M100/M200 as standalone motors that weren’t built in to a thruster housing. We’re currently working on bringing back the M200 with some extra robustness, but it likely won’t be available again until some time next year (we have several ongoing development projects).

Not that I’m aware of. From a quick forum search of “T200 gear” / “M200 gear” the following comment seemed the most relevant, but you may find other interesting tidbits in other comments/threads :slight_smile:
