Is it possible to use a fathom-s board set with a four wire (two pair) tether
Hi @pgmcphail, you could use just the video from the Fathom-S, which takes two wires, or just the communication, which takes four wires. Unfortunately it wouldn’t be possible to do both.
I’d recommend taking a look at the Fathom-X Tether Interface, which just needs two wires for high speed data.
Thank you Rusty you certainly saved me some time and money I will look at the Fathom-x paired with a pixhawk.
You’ll need a computer as well since the Pixhawk does not have Ethernet. You might want to check out our Advanced ROV Electronics Package, which comes with everything you need.
I did buy the rest of what I needed to install an advanced electronic package. I have not had any experience with linux is there a setup guide for a newbie like me.I have setup on bench installed the sd card from Blue Robotics powered up and logged in that’s were I need help from.
Hi Phillip, Can you tell us more about what you’re trying to accomplish, and where you’re at with it?
Are you building an ROV?
I first brought a Trench Rover but after a short time things started failing and it had no backup so i decided to up grade. I have replaced the complete thrust system, lights and I was never happy with how unstable it was so i thought i would like to upgrade the electronics. looking around the market the best supported product seemed to be Blue Robotics. I now have the advanced electronic package less the camera which is coming.I have taken some photos of what I have not sure how to insert them here. I have assembled all the parts ie Fathom x boards x 2, Raspberry pi 3 B, Pixhawk 2.4.8 and as I said earlier put the pre loaded sd card in the Raspberry pi after sorting out the change of the password logged in,The Pixhawk has been loaded with Ardusub as well I just need to know what to do from here any help would be much appreciated.
