[Explorer] MicroROV

Post by Karim Ashraf » Thu Feb 27, 2020 4:50 am

If our Micro-ROV will be powered from the top using its own tether.
Will Mate provide us with 12V power supply for the MicroROV?

Thanks in advance

Yes. At the world championship competition, MATE will supply a ]12V Powerwerx power supply: https://seamate.org/collections/power-r ... utlet-gfci

Note that these power supplies tend to run at 14.1 VDC.

Good luck.

In this case do we have the option to put the fuse at the top or the bottom?

Thanks in Advance

Any fuse should be at the point of connection to power. So if you use the MATE power supply, you must have a fuse topside.

Good luck.
