My question is about interference on the tether UTPs.
I’m looking to push what I can install on the BlueROV but I’m unsure on how the Fathom tether can perform when fully used. With it being un shielded I’m wanting to know what everyone’s experience is with the likes of a Sonar combined with additional cameras and payload data links at the same time.
Can the UTP of the pair operate together with Ardusub link as well as Cameras on another FathomX and S on another pair, with say RS485 on another running data and sonar data (2 wire Ethernet) on another? (Just an example there)
What is everyone’s experience with what signal types WILL and WILL NOT work together at the same time? What types of signals, and frequencies, will happily work together on this tether? Anyone tried shielding techniques?
This is leading towards weather or not I change from a Fathom tether to something else. What are other popular choices for tethers out there at the moment?
Thanks everyone for any information, I know there are a lot of you out there who have experimented with various setups. I’m curious to hear your experiences with this…
