T200 (with 18 AWG cable)
These T200s are the original R1 variation and are built with a 18 AWG cable. If you are looking for the updated T200 Thruster with 16 AWG cable, you can find them here.
- 1 x T200 Thruster w/ Cable Penetrator
- 1 x Cable Penetrator Nut
- 1 x Cable Penetrator O-ring
- 1 x CW or CCW Propeller (Reverse propeller is already installed on the thruster)

*Values limited by ESC used to drive thruster.
Note that nominal operation at 12-16 V is recommended for the best balance of thrust and efficiency, though operation at up to 20 V is allowable. Exceeding 20 V is not within the rating and not recommended, please see here for more information.
For more detailed performance specifications, including thrust, RPM, power, and efficiency at various throttle levels and supply voltages from 10-20 V, please see the performance charts below.

- R1 – Initial Release
1. Connect motor wires to ESC and connect the ESC to power and a signal.
2. Send a signal and the thruster will start spinning. That’s it.
Always practice caution when you’re working with electricity in water and with the spinning blades of the propeller. Keep body parts away from the thruster inlet and outlet to avoid injury.
Do not operate the thruster for extended periods out of water. The bearings are lubricated by the water and vibration and noise will be greater when dry.
The thruster can handle saltwater and sandy environments pretty well, but it does not get along with seaweed. Avoid sucking seaweed into the thruster to avoid damage.
