RS-14V Surface Sampler

Representative samples at your fingertips. The RS-14V Surface Sampler is a remotely-controlled surface sampling system designed for oceanography and limnology research, source water testing and environmental monitoring.

Keeping Your Hands Out of the Water

Robust: The RS-14V Surface Sampler collects up to 14 grab samples and is capable of operating under the most extreme conditions, resists shocks and severe outdoor exposure.

Automated: This sampler offers pre-programming and remote mobile control, as well as automatic triggering via external sensors.


Low-consumption: The RS-14V system offers long-term deployment from 6 weeks to 6 months, greatly simplifying sampling operations and reducing logistical complexities.

Certified: This system is controlled by Fluidion’s patented technology using an internal vacuum pump that has been certified through the European ETV Program, ensuring uncontaminated sampling every time.


  • Environmental

    Water, the lifeblood of our planet, requires vigilant protection. The challenge lies in the complexity of monitoring diverse aquatic environments - from small waterways to the vastness of the oceans. What's more, extreme environmental conditions and lack of infrastructure make the task impossible or very costly. That's where advanced technology plays a key role, providing innovative, automated and IoT-connected solutions. These tools provide continuous, accurate data that drives timely and effective strategies to study and protect our waters.

  • Recreational Water

    Natural waters can be a hub for fun, recreation and sports. Ensuring their safety is critical, as microbial contaminants can pose serious public health risks. Traditional water testing methods often struggle to provide timely and continuous monitoring. Implementing advanced, automated technology not only enhances monitoring programs, but also helps to identify and mitigate potential hazards in a timely manner, ensuring that our recreational waters remain safe and enjoyable for all.

  • Drinking Water

    Access to drinking water is a major global issue, supported by the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals. Providing safe drinking water involves a number of steps - collection from groundwater, surface water or recycled sources, treatment and disinfection, storage and distribution. This task is fraught with challenges, especially the need to comply with stringent regulations and the inherent complexity of water treatment processes. New-age automated monitoring technologies are helping to ensure water safety, facilitating real-time analysis and improving decision-making.
