Hey, so our club recently acquired four T100 thrusters and a Fathom-S tether interface with 50 feet of tether to use on our ROV for the MATE ROV competition, and are trying to figure out how the Fathom-S interface works. I’ve viewed your technical documentation and was wondering if anyone knew the awnsers to 1. How you get power to run down the tether from the top board to the bottom board using one tether, or if its that both boards need outside power (we cant tell which it is from the technical documentation) 2. How you would wire analog joysticks to pass through the interface and the tether down to the arduino
We are also having issue getting our arduino code to work well with the Basic ESC. Its a edited verison of the Blue Robotics sample code for a parallax joystick(would link but new user limit) that i’m trying to get to work with a adafruit joystick but when i go into the serial monitor each joy stick seems to control all of the motor outputs, and while we haven’t been able to get all of the motors wired yet, when hooking up just one it is very spotty on whether it will turn at all. Can anyone give me some advice on how to better code this? Im still new to coding and i’m stuck on where i’ve made an error in the code. Ive uploaded the edited code here. The codes goal is to use two joysticks to drive 4 motors (the original code was for 3 motors). We have two horizontal motors, one left one right, and two vertical motors we want to run in sync. There is also side code in their to run a servo to control the Blue Robotics Analog camera, but that hasnt been tested as of yet.
