Turn off thrusters


(Esteban) #1

Is there any way to turn off the thrusters and ESC without turning off the main computer?


(Jacob) #2

Hi Esteban, Are you referring to the BlueROV2, or your own project? The ESCs draw a few watts when they are not running the motors. If you wanted to switch power to them you would need a solid state relay or mosfet capable of handling the current when the motors are running.

Is there a schematic or picture and code to add the solid state relay?
best,
Doyle
