AC-CESS - News - March 05, 2005


As with every technology based company, AC-CESS seeks continual product development and advancement, thus ensuring their clients get the best performance from their AC-CESS equipment.

Designed and manufactured by our friends at All Oceans Engineering Ltd, AC-CESS are very happy to introduce to the market their new 2 function manipulator. The ability to inspect, pick-up and grip items is a standard requirement of all ROV’s, whatever their size. AC-CESS don’t do standard equipment, so our manipulator combines grip and full continuous wrist rotate via a ground breaking drive-train, resulting in the smallest 2 function manipulator in the ROV market.

Consisting of titanium, aluminium, stainless steel and plastic components, the AC-ROV micro-manipulator system comes completely integrated into its own bottom buoyancy block. There are no underwater cable connections limiting snagging potential, while the integrated nature of manipulator and block gives the system inherent strength and robustness - a feature demonstrated by all AC-ROV components. Simply remove the standard bottom block from your AC-ROV and fit the manipulator block, the manipulator is 100% interchangeable between individual AC-ROV units, giving maximum functionality and cost savings to our clients.

Topside control is a thumb activated one handed joystick controller that simply connects directly to the control box without need for modification, with all manipulator operations viewed via the state of the art camera system. Two and three jaw options are available and customers can specify special gripper heads for specific jobs. Three screws secure the jaw assembly to the arm and change-out could not be easier. A demonstration movie is available on the AC-CESS website –

The AC-ROV is the only one handed system on the market, even with the addition of a manipulator the AC-ROV is still the only genuine one man system available.
