Pressure tolerant motor controller


For our pressure-neutral ROV drive prototype, we needed a suitable motor controller in addition to the BLDC motor. Here we decided to use the ODrive from ODrive Robotics. The design is compact, powerful and simply well thought out.

After all the adjustments to the electronic components for use in the deep sea, we were able to connect the controller to our BLDC motor and integrate it into the network of our ROV via our pressure-neutral Ethernet adapter. Furthermore, we can communicate with the controller via UART, USB and CAN BUS.

In combination with our BLDC motor we are able to develop high precision and powerful manipulators for the deep sea.
