The top side transmitter PCB is measures 45.7 mm x 89mm and is powered by 12 Volt DC 500 mA. It can control

1. 4 Thrusters. Two aft, one lateral and one vertical. Can control both DC brushless and DC brushed motors with external circuit upto 1KW motors.

2. Two servo units for Pan and Tilt functions for

camera viewing angle control.

4. Light dimmer control.

3. Leak alarm.

The inputs of the transmitter board are connected with a 10 K Ohm potentiometer or a joystick.

Receiver PCB

The receiver PCB is 33.0 mm x 35.5 mm and receives information from the transmitter PCB and then outputs a signal into R/C PWM format to control the following.

1. Four ESC units (not supplied) that are used to control

DC brushless motors.

2. Light dimmer control board used either for control of

LEDs or 2 x 12 Volt halogen 75W bulbs.

3. Two Servo units (not supplied) which control pan and tilt

unit for the control of the viewing angle of camera.

4. Leak sensor board.

The receiver only provides the PWM signal and not the power for these external Functions. The sevo functions for pan and tilt are the only two functions that can take power from the receiver.
