Product Description

This is the power cable set on the BlueROV2 that connects the battery enclosure to the main electronics enclosure. It has preinstalled WetLink Penetrators and 5.5 mm bullet connectors.

These cables use the same three-conductor cable as our thrusters and the 6.5mm version of the WetLink Penetrator that work with that cable. With three 16 AWG conductors for both positive and negative, this is equivalent to a single 11 AWG wire, providing ample copper for efficient power transmission. The cables include red and black heat-shrink to indicate polarity when installed.

This cable can be used as a replacement on your BlueROV2 and it’s a great option if you’re building an ROV from scratch as well!
