The FXTI provides a simple but flexible topside enclosure to interface the BlueROV2 to a computer. Contains a USB to Ethernet converter and a Fathom-X Board, and offers plenty of options for expansion! The FXTI is included with all new purchases of BlueROV2, but is also available separately.
The Binder 770 connector has leads for all 8 wires, providing full support for both the slim and regular Fathom tethers. Those leads are reconfigurable within the box so that you can quickly use an extra twisted pair from the tether for the Water Linked Analog Locator or any RS485 device.
Two additional holes are provided on the box and are sized properly to accept additional Binder 770 connector or our standard penetrators.
Indicator lights on the top of the box show the “power” and “link” status from the Fathom-X board. The USB-B connection provides a solid connector that is unlikely to be damaged during transit or operation.
