Having enjoyed remarkable success with Sydney Water, the custom Water Sampler V1.0 solution has been updated and operationally improved. Water Sampler V2.0 is now available and while it offers the same full-water sample collection ability in inaccessible and dangerous locations as V1.0, it has been streamlined in design and enjoys greater payload integration and simplicity of use. It can also now collect up to 2 litres a single sample event!
A definitive move away from traditional water sampling techniques, Sphere Drones’ water sampling technology - via its Water Sampler V2.0 - is now allowing for the precision sourcing of water samples from unsafe, hostile and inaccessible human locations. The peristaltic pumps and water reservoir are integrated (as a payload) on the Matrice M600 ‘heavy-lifting’ drone. Flight and manoeuvring are not impeded by the integrated pumping system and it easily operated by a single switch on the drone remote control. With built in GPS, water samples can be taken with remarkable accuracy from almost any location. This is a true innovation for those organisations that require water sampling as part of their operation.
|Pump Speed||≈2L per Min|
|Ambient Humidity Range||20-80% RH|
|Liquid Temperature Range||5-50°C|
|Max Operational Height From Water||3m|
Peristaltic pumps reduce contamination during the collection of samples. This makes sterilisation of the system more simple and provides a more modular design with the potential to remove the pump head if required.
2L is the maximum sampling volume with an overflow outlet in place in case of oversampling.
We provide hose length of up to 3m. Depending on your operating conditions, you may prefer a slightly shorter hose. We sample with a 3m hose in ocean conditions to provide maximum separation from the swell.
Yes. If you require a different filter head, please discuss this with us.
Yes. We recommend utilising an X3/Z3/X5 camera to improve situational awareness, however, if you would prefer to have a fixed, downward mounted FPV style camera, we can assist with this.
Yes. We provide an installation guide with every kit or, if you’re local, we can assist with the installation for you.
We usually get ~15 minutes flight time
We are usually able to collect 2 full samples (Including ‘Seasoning’ the container with sample fluid to reduce likelihood of contamination)
No, Hence the longer hose. If operating around marine environments we recommend a thorough cleaning procedure
We selected a container that is able to be sterilised and is chemistry grade to prevent contamination and safety.
If you would like to sample something other than water or liquids that are very high or low in acidity, please contact us before use.
Yes, please call one of our staff if you would like to discuss optional aircraft.
