hi, from the above picture, it seems that you are not using the Pro Camera-HD.

and I notice the software you are using is not 30.1.0 . The user interface looks like you are running 30.0.3

There are two lasers that we are going to mount to the ROV. These laser beams will be 10cm apart and be parallel. When turned on underwater the dots will always be 10cm apart acting as a scale for underwater measurements.

  • Create a "Laser Calibration Station" (Piece of paper with two X's that are 10cm apart in a straight line).

Place your calibration sheet 3-4 meters away from your e-chassis lasers with the bottom X on sheet at the same height from the ground as the laser on the ROV.

Only put glue on these sections, not on the sides.

While the glue is drying do not put the electronics chassis in your ROV. The fumes will cause the inside of your tube to cloud, damaging it. Wait at least 1 hour before final assembly.

Once your ROV is fully assembled, you may need to change the buoyancy and ballast on it to make sure it is neutrally buoyant in water.

  • This camera runs warmer than the previous camera. When operating we recommend letting the camera warm up the air in the tube before completely sealing it, otherwise there is pressure that can cause the endcaps to pop off.

    • To do this, turn your system on, remove the vent syringe in one of the endcaps and let your ROV sit for 30 minutes. This will warm the air and letting the built up pressure escape.

    • Make sure you insert the syringe before your dive!

  • Congratulations on finishing the build, if you run into any issues during operation please email us at support@openrov.com
