Two wire TSP tether power setup


(Christian) #1

Hi,

I’m going to be using a tether with two TSP wires for our BlueROV and I was wondering what is the best way to send down 120 VAC? I’m looking at the best method to send power down my tether

Christian,

What do mean by “TSP”?

Do you want to send data through the same two wires?

Hi,

Sorry I meant STP (shielded twisted pair), my apologies. We plan on sending power down the two STP wires, we have a Ethernet wire for the data. I’m wondering what would be the best method to terminate the two STP wires on topsides?

Okay. So the STP wires will only carry power, correct? I think there are a lot of ways to terminate this to a 120VAC connection on the surface, but you’ll want to be as safe as possible. I would recommend a GFCI at minimum. Make sure all connections are protected from accidental contact.

Yes only the STPs carry power, I’m wondering what people recommend on topsides as an object to terminate the wires such as what kind of connector?

Hi Christian,

I’m interested to know if you got the external power supply working.

I’m trying the same thing, did you run into any problems? What hardware did you use?
