The Fathom Spool is a rugged and easy to use spool that simplifies tether storage and management for your BlueROV2! Full IP67 water resistance, 8-wire slip-ring, and integrated quick connectors make it tough enough to use at almost any dive site while remaining easy to transport.
Does not include tether! A Fathom-X tether Interface (FXTI) topside box is required for use, as well as a tether with an installed Binder 770 Connector.
The spool also includes an adjustable drag brake to provide fine control over the resistance while spooling and unspooling. A locking feature in the spool side panels allows the tether to be secured for transport.
The crank handle can be removed with a single thumb screw, allowing it to be flipped around and reinstalled for easy transportation and locking of the spool.
The Fathom Spool comes as a partially-assembled kit with some simple assembly required. It has a Binder 770 connector on both the inside and outside of the spool so that to install the tether, you just plug it into the inner Binder 770 connector, attach a few restraints, and start spooling! An included 8 meter (26 ft) extension cable provides a connection from the outer connector on the spool to your FXTI and computer.
The Fathom Spool is available in two configurations- a standard width version capable of storing up to 150m of Fathom ROV tether, and a double wide large version capable of storing up to 300m.
