Power Supply Blue Rov 1


#1

Hello everyone,

I am currently assembling the BlueROV1 and I have problems understanding how to supply power to the whole ROV.
As the 4’’ watertight enclosure is too small to put a battery in it, and as the only cable that comes from the surface is the tether (which has itself all its 8 wires connected to the surface computer), I have the feeling that I am missing something.

Is it the computer that supplies the power to the whole system?

Could anyone help me clarifying this?

Thank you all very much in advance,

Seb

Hi Seb,

Yes, the battery is supposed to go in the 4" enclosure on the original BlueROV. Check out this article about original BlueROV battery selection for dimensions, suggestions, and a calculator.
