Waterproofing Electronics


(Caetano Chappuis) #1

Hey Everybody,

So I am going to test my homemade sub, but I am scared of leakage. I have already brought the sub underwater, and there was no sign of it, but somehow I still don’t want to risk it.

I read that coating with an acrylic coating spray could make the electronics more water resistant. Is that true and what is your experience with leakage?

Can I use this spray on the Arduino Board, the basic ESC and the IC2 Level converter?

Thank you very much,

and best wishes

…you can oil compensate it, but you have to get the camera seperate bottle then, and a small compensator, but its not a really Big task…only need 1 ATM preassure in the compensator… but they are expensive, but im looking at this at the moment;)
