Sea Scout's ROV Saga

It's now just a matter of getting all the bits and pieces and putting it all together.  The picture below shows a ten LED floodlight which at 12 volts only draws 0.15 amps. and provides plenty of illumination.  It will be attached to the front of the ROV and be used to light up the cave containing the crustaceans.


At our meeting this week we also worked on the compressed air controls for the endefector.  We had procured a three way valve only to find that while it would force the cylinder arm open it would not draw it closed.  And so not function as a control valve for the endofector.
