Micro-ROV Power

Post by Ayman Selim » Wed Jan 27, 2021 4:24 am

Can we power the Micro-ROV from a 48-12 V DC-DC converter based in the main ROV?

Yes, having the ROV powered from the MATE 48 volt power supply is allowed. You are limited to 12V, but you could use a 48 to 12 converter to power the micro-ROV.

Note: MATE will have a 12V power supply at each EXPLORER station to use. But teams can use the main 48V surface supply as well, you are not required to use the 12V supply provided.

Good luck.
