S.C.I.N.I. Power Converter
Custom power supply enclosure for a long range tethered ROV known as the SCINI (Submersible Capable of under Ice Navigation and Imaging). This ROV was developed for exploring below the sea ice in Antarctica. AC power was sent through the tether to an AC-DC converter before being sent to the ROV which needs DC power. AC-DC converters create a lot of heat, which can build up in the enclosure even in a cold ocean environment. To improve heat transfer, we developed a tray system that threads into the main housing to allow the maximum surface contact between the converter and the outside environment.
