Thruster not give the same thrust


(arif) #1

hi,

i have a problem with my T200 thruster,
i use 2 thruster for submerged my auv, but when i set the same signal to both thruster, i doesn’t give the same thrust between the thruster, the starboard thruster give least thrust compared to the port thruster even though i give both the same servo signal.
from your professional view, how can i get the equal thrust between my submerged thruster so that my AUV doesn’t tilt while diving.
thank you.

Hi @arifaiman,

What device are you using to drive your the ESCs for you thrusters? (Pixhawk, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, etc)

If you assume the signal to be the same, but the thrust is different, you can always check by using a servo Y-harness and comparing the output.
