The purpose of the surface control system, is to allow the team to make progress in software parallel to the development of underwater vehicles. This control setup allows the team to test software on existing and current hardware as needed.
Each Sabertooth speed controller is capable of 10 amps continuous throughput and 15 amps peak current. The speed controllers can work within the range of 2s to 6s (7.4v - 22.2v) battery packs. Each Sabertooth speed controller has two separate controllable channels within a single unit.
Below is an electrical diagram for the surface side control unit.
