I’m in the process of developing a drop camera.
I need to run the following:
1 x Pi
1 x Pixhawk
1x Fathom X
1x BR Low Light Camera
1x BR Camera Servo
1x Continuous Rotation Servo
1x Bar 30 Pressure Sensor
1x Ping 360º Sonar
No Thrusters and No Lights
I have the whole lot hooked up to a 50m standard 26AWG tether. I’m using 2 pairs positive and 2 pairs negative and I’m trying to piggyback the comms between the two fathom x boards on the blue pair.
Running this on the bench from my power supply set to 24V and 4.4A I’m getting 7.6V to the Bus Bars at the bottom of the 50m Tether.
I am currently only trying to run the Fathom X, the Pixhawk, The Pi and the camera.
I haven’t yet hooked up the sonar, either of the servos or the pressure sensor
I’m getting an intermittent yellow flash from the main LED on the Pixhawk, A flickering light on the subsea Fathom X power LED and no light at all on the Link Active LED.
First of all, does this set up sound like it could be achievable and if so, am I missing something glaringly obvious?
All help greatly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance.
