[Task1] Trigger of Compressor

Post by Cobanbura » Tue Jun 12, 2018 1:35 pm


We are confused about activating the compressor for lifting the debris mission. Are we allowed to switch on the compressor from the surface or must our vehicle has to do this with a trigger? We have been planned a compressor cable assembled on vehicle's front side (it's assembled to the tether at the same time.) and launch the compressor when cable is under the lift bag. Is that plan suitable?

Looking for your reply, thank you.

You are allowed to switch the compressor on from the surface. Or more likely switch the air flow from a compressor on and off from the surface.

Having the end of your cable (which is on the ROV) under the lift bag, then turning on the compressor on the surface ... that plan is suitable.

Good luck.
