Depth Control

The Depth Control knob is used to make the ROV dive or surface by controlling the direction and amount of vertical thrust.

Knob Location and Label

       

Use

Rotate the Depth Control knob forward (counterclockwise) to dive. The greater the rotation from the center position, the faster it will dive. Rotate the Depth Control knob backward (clockwise) to surface. The greater the rotation from the center position, the faster it will surface.

Do not run the vertical thruster in air for an extended period of time. Doing so may cause overheating and damage to the components.

The Depth Control Knob has a center detent so that, by feel, you can tell when the knob is centered.
