hey, I am thinking about switching the ROV using a magnetic reed latching switch and I am planning to disable the current switching mechanism which is done using a optocoupler IC 4N33S. Is there an elegant way of doing so? I am planning to remove the R1 (18K), any good ideas?
I am in the process of carrying out the experiment to test whether there is a conflict between magnetic switching and tether switching.
assuming the ROV is already switched on by tether, now if I switch on the power switch (the reed switch) at J4-1, J4-2, what will happen to the current (flow through both opto-transistor and reed switch)?
vice versa in 1 (switch on reed first, then opto-switch)
what happens when I switch off either switch?
