    Hello,

    I’m Gil, An Msc student designing a module for an ROV. I have a few questions regarding your products.

    1. Is the M200 water and pressure proof?
    2. Whats is the maximum Torque for the M200/T200? RPM vs torque chart?
    3. Can the T200 be mounted from its back – opposite to the propeller? the mounting bracket shown in your site is not suitable for my application.

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Gil,

    Thanks for the post.

    1. Yes, the M200 is water and pressure proof. It’s a “flooded” brushless motor so water runs through it to lubricate it and keep it cool.

    2. We don’t have torque measurements from the thruster, unfortunately. The maximum theoretical torque is about 0.8 N-m at 16V. We haven’t had a chance to validate that empirically.

    3. I’m not exactly sure what you mean by mounting it from it’s back. You mean from the tailcone?

      Can you please elaborate on the M200 sealing mechanism? is it oil compensated? how how does the torque is being delivered? is it magnetically coupled? or the shaft is penetrating?

       

      Thanks!

    Hi Rusty, thanks for the quick response.

    By mounting the M200 from the back, I mean from it’s tail cone.

    Thanks!

    Hi Gil,

    Our thrusters and motors do not have any sort of seals. They are a fully flooded design in which water flows throughout the motor while its running, and the individual parts of the motor are coated with waterproof compounds to electrically seal them from water and make them resistant to corrosion. This is possible thanks to their brushless outrunner design- there is no physical or electrical contact between the stator and rotor. This design with its lack of any cavities also means that pressure is not much of a concern. The propeller is directly attached to the rotor.

    The T100 and T200 thruster do not have any sort of mounting mechanism on the tail cone, but you could definitely modify it to make this possible. The M100 and M200 motors mount with threaded holes in the bottom of their base.
