Fathom x tether interface board set

I am from Malawi…am doing a school project concerning building the ROV from scratch… So I need fathom x interface bord set… To buy…I will be highly appreciate if you help me…

Or how can I buy from this link to reach me in Malawi??

Hi @Junior1, hopefully that’s an interesting and fun project :slight_smile:

Questions about shipping locations are best directed to our sales team, who you can reach at sales@bluerobotics.com.

Note that we’re currently on break until 2/Jan, so you’ll most likely get a response next week :slight_smile:

Is it possible to connect the rov directly to pc with 5m ethernet cable without fathom x interface board??

Absolutely. No other changes needed. Just connect the ethernet cable between the RPi, and the surface computer.

Hi @Junior1,

Yes, direct ethernet connection at such a short distance should be fine, you’ll just need to find a way to waterproof the connection :slight_smile:

Depending on your cable shape you may be able to use one of our WetLink Penetrators, but that would require you removing the connector from the vehicle end, and attaching it again once the cable had been passed through the penetrator.
