In its 300m version, the 5-function arm 5E Mini is known as one of the first eco-friendly arm for ROV's since it combines a very lightweight shape with a complete no-oil system, thus avoiding any risk of pollution for the environment. 

For operations up to 6000m depth, an oil-filled alternative version is available.

The arm 5E Mini is mostly used  to lead meticulous and articulated manipulations. It can operate in locations that are confined and out of reach.

The continuous rotation of the jaws makes it a significant asset for inspection missions. 

This arm can be installed on any type of ROV and can be fitted with many kinds of grabbers : standard, bucket, with parallel jaws. 

Two  arms can be embedded on a single skid and can work simultaneously, each arm having a strong lifting capability.
