New Products! Servos, parts, and some basics

This post is the first of (hopefully) many "New Product" posts here at Blue Robotics. In addition to thrusters, there are a whole lot of other things you'll need to get your underwater creation in the water. Today we're introducing a few new products to help out with that.

Waterproof Servos from Hitec

These three servos are just like ordinary servos but waterproof for use on underwater robotic arms, actuators, pan/tilt systems, and just about anything else. With an IP67 rating, they are officially waterproof down to about 1 meter. We've heard reports of people using them deeper than that, but nothing official.

The HS-646WP is a standard size, analog servo. Analog (versus digital) servos work great for most applications. This servo is strong with 133 oz/in of torque at 6.0V. Although this servo is "standard" size, it is slightly larger than Hitec's other standard sized servos. HS-5646WP is a digital version of the same servo - meaning that it has a microcontroller inside to control the servo position giving it more precision, strength, and the ability to be reprogrammed. Last is the HS-5086WP, a micro-sized digital servo. It's quite a bit smaller than the standard-sized servos for smaller applications. All of the servos come with standard 3-pin connectors, several servo arms, and mounting hardware.

Spare Thruster Parts

We also have a few spare parts in our store now including spare propeller sets and spare thruster cable, sold by the meter.
