OpenROV Controller Board v2.8

The v2.8 OpenROV Controller Board functions as the electronic interface between your control device and your OpenROV. The Controller Board directly handles the low-level commands to devices such as the sensors, motors, servos, and lights. The v2.8 Controller Board is pre-loaded with the latest OpenROV firmware and Arduino boot loader.

Please note that this is included in the OpenROV v2.8 Kit,  If you buy the kit from our website, you don't need to buy another one here.  If you have a v2.7 or earlier OpenROV, you will need to use the backward compatible v2.8 controller board, as the orientation of the DB-25 connecter on this product won't fit older models of OpenROV.

This is also a great development tool for use other projects that use servos, DC motors or I2C sensors and we recommend you check out our v2.8 Dev Kit
