SeaBotix offers a variation to the standard thrusters for use on alternate systems such as home built, project or production ROVs and AUVs. The high performance, simple to integrate and low cost thrusters have proven popular in many areas.

Proven design and technology
Utilizing the same construction as the SBT150 thruster but removing the LBV electronics make integration simple. A long whip is provided with two (2) wires - Power & Ground. The mounting holes on the thruster provide a simple way to mount to different systems.

Powerful small robust thruster
Continual Bollard thrust is an impressive 2.2 kg f (4.85 pd f) at only 4.25 amps. Peak thrust is 2.9 kg f (6.4 pd f) for short periods by increasing the current. At 4.25 amps the BTD150 thrusters only require 19 VDC making the power requirement only 80 watts.
