Hello everyone, I am new to this hobby and I am using T200 thruster with commander but I will be using 20v power supply to drive this kit, I have question in regards to commander, do I need to buy separate step down convertor from 20v to 5 v to power up the commander or I can feed the power from same 20v power supply?
@ravi197699, welcome to the forum
20V should be fine, as per the
Powering the Thruster Commander section of the guide, and the technical details table on the product page
thank you so much, when I heard 5v in the video on webpage, I got confused on if I should be feeding the commander only 5v. But thank you for clarification, how these thrusters hold in saltwater?
T200 product page:
T200 Thruster - Thruster Technology:
The T200 Thruster uses our patented underwater thruster design consisting of a fully-flooded brushless motor with encapsulated motor windings and stator as well as coated magnets and rotor. The thruster body and propeller are made from tough polycarbonate plastic and the only exposed metal components are made from marine grade 316 stainless steel.
T200 Thruster - Guides - Important Information:
The thruster can handle saltwater environments pretty well, but it does not get along with seaweed. Avoid sucking seaweed into the thruster to avoid damage.
