I would like more information or a guide on how to mount the switch. I found only how to install the button on the flange but no information on how it goes connected to the electronics of the BlueRov
The Switch is only rated for 5A, it doesn’t have a high enough current rating to support being a primary on/off switch for the BlueROV2.
Here is a previous discussion on the subject and what modifications would be needed: BR switch as a battery disconnect
Thanks, but I want to mount it without further modification and only turn off the electronics when I do a mission and avoid disconnecting the battery repeatedly. I noticed that if I leave the battery inserted and move from one observation point to another, the ROV overheats a lot and gives me a temperature alarm. Does turning off the Pixhawk electronics, Fathom board, Raspberry solve the problem?
I understood that I have to make a bridge with the Switch on the UBEC 5V 6A power supply but which wires? I’m not an electronics expert. If I bridge the UBEC entrance, am I right?I understood that I have to make a bridge with the Switch on the UBEC 5V 6A power supply but which wires? I’m not an electronics expert.

I solved, I joined the red cables coming out of UBEC and connected to the switch. I turned on the BlueRov and the internal temperature went to 50 C° in a few minutes. I switched off with the swicth, communication with the ROV is lost. Then I waited a quarter of an hour and turned it back on. I am happy and I saw that the internal temperature has dropped to 40 C°. Just what I expected
