NIC Carbon Fibre Telescopic Manipulator
NIC Part No: EOD000122
The NIC Carbon Fibre robotic manipulator allows EOD operators to manipulate suspect devices and objects at a standoff distance of 3 metres.
Tube sections are fully telescopic, with a powered claw attachment at the operating end. The claw has a frangible joint, which fails in the event of an unplanned detonation. This ensures the load transferred to the operator is reduced.
A fragment shield forward of the operator offers extended protection in the event of an unplanned detonation.
A counterweight tube assembly is behind the operator, which balances the manipulator.
The claw opens/closes and rotates under powered control. The angle of the claw is adjusted manually with locking screws.
The manipulator collapses down and is stored in a 1700 Pelican case.
