We have a client that is looking to run power over the tether for a drop cam project using the Fathom-S for the video transmission interface. As well would like to also power a GoPro camera.
As I’m not an electrical guru just looking for some general thoughts on this approach and if anyone has tried it. I know BR is working on a power over tether approach for the BlueROV2 so figured it was doable for this smaller application given the the low power an amp requirements.
Adding a BEC for th 5V GoPro power conversion is a non issue and the Fathom-S handles a wide voltage range from 7-20V.
Will be using the BR tether cable in 100M length.
Open to thoughts and suggestions.
