New Product: The Newton Subsea Gripper!

Today’s new product should grab your attention – it’s the Newton Subsea Gripper for the BlueROV2 and other subsea vehicles! Check out the new product video:

The Newton Subsea Gripper is a single function manipulator that’s simple, robust, and highly capable. It’s controlled by a standard servo-style PWM signal, just like our thrusters and lights, runs on 9-18v, and is rated to 300 meter depth.

It comes with a quick-adjust mount that makes it easy to mount to the BlueROV2 and allows it to be retracted and rotated in the field. The mount attaches with two included M5 screws but you will have to drill the appropriate holes on the BlueROV2 bottom panel. We have clear instructions on how to do that.

That’s it for today! If you are in Japan, please visit our stand at Oceans ’18 in Kobe next week! We’ll have the BlueROV2 and the Newton Subsea Gripper on display.

  2. That’s just perfect for some of planned work. Excellent news.

    (How many apples were harmed in making the video?)

  3. Hi guys, awesome job!

    I was wondering if you guys had considered compensating the electrical side with oil to increase depth rating?

    Cheers,

  4. @etienne Thanks for the praises! We’re excited to see what you do with it! Oil compensation is fairly difficult for us to work with from an engineering and production standpoint. We may get to it one day, but for now we will be keeping things simple and either having air cavities for electronics or free-flood components such as our thrusters.
