Developed by ECA Group in order to be fitted on lightweight ROVs, the arm 5E micro is entirely electrical which makes it a key element for tricky tasks requiring high accuracy without jolt. It is also one of the lightest 5-function electrical manipulator arm available on the market.

This arm incorporates brushless motors, which leads to an appreciable ease of maintenance. It can conduct a large range of operations, thanks to the continuous rotation of the jaws.  The 300m version is eco-friendly as its no-oil system avoids any risk of pollution spillage; the 6000m alternative is oil filled.

It can be fitted on any inspection-class ROV available on the market and can be fitted with a micro grabber.

Two arms can be installed on a single skid and can run diverse operations in complete autonomy from one another. This configuration is highly profitable for ROVs owners who desire to achieve complex underwater operations.

Examples of solutions brought by  this manipulator arm for subsea applications :

  • Recovery of objects laying on sea bottom 
  • Action on activators on well heads
  • Carrying a sensor (e.g. CP probe or NDT) or a light tool  to complete the ROV inspection task
  • Assistance to divers (e.g. carry a rack of tools or bring back to the surface an object found by the diver)
  • Soft rope cutting
  • Sample recovery

Examples of solutions brought by  this manipulator arm for nuclear applications :

  • Extraction of foreign objects inside spent fuel assembly within the BK pool ; this requires a specific grabber to be mounted on the arm
  •  Mounted on a special skid attached under lightweight ROV’s like ECA Group’s H300 Mk2, it performs foreign object recovery inside nuclear pools and decommissioning operations
