We have designed a special waterproof servo capable of operating at depths exceeding 100 m. Use the servo to build an underwater robot arm, trigger a water or sediment sampler, or drop a clump weight after your vehicle has made it to the bottom of a deep lake. We are very excited to see how these servos are going to be used. Here are a few projects that already use this device:
The servo has a standard three-wire servo connector so it can be adapted for use in many different projects. It is compatible with OpenROV 2.7 through the auxiliary wires but will require modification to the controller board. More detailed instructions and integration documentation will be released soon.
Why is this in the experimental category?
This is our first stab at a waterproof servo. So far we’ve done basic testing in the field (watch a video of our first test at Lake Tahoe here), as well as tests in our pressure vessel with both freshwater and seawater. Before starting out with this servo here’s a list of some things to be aware of:
