The VideoRay Rotating Manipulator Arm is one of the most useful tools in the VideoRay toolbox. With full 360º head rotation and five interchangeable jaws, its uses are unlimited - anything from untangling tether snags and cutting rope, to collecting samples and recovering objects up to 45 kg (100 lb)*.
The Rotating Manipulator Arm features five interchangeable jaws – parallel jaw, V-jaw, sampler jaw, trident jaw, and cutter jaw. The jaws can be switched within minutes, saving valuable operation time.
*Like the standard manipulator attachment, the Rotating Manipulator Arm can lift objects underwater too heavy for the ROV to lift under its own power by gripping them while the operator pulls the tether of the ROV to the surface. With simple maneuvering and hand control buttons, you can grab, scoop, cut, and retrieve submerged items, especially in confined or hazardous locations. The VideoRay ROV's camera can be tilted down to focus in on the jaw to provide a close view of the operation. When not needed, the Rotating Manipulator Arm can be easily removed in seconds.
The Rotating Manipulator Arm is delivered with a mounting kit that will attach to standard Pro 4 ballast skids. It can be used in conjunction with most other VideoRay options and accessories.
