Limpets controlled by this module can collect canisters and asteroid chunks automatically. Two modes of operation are possible. First a chunk or canister can be collected quickly by deploying the limpet whilst targeting the object in question; this will consume the limpet. Second a limpet can be deployed with no collectable object targeted and will result in the limpet entering a slower autonomous mode where it will collect any available object automatically for a set time. To collect asteroid chunks in either mode requires a Refinery module to be fitted.
— In-game Description
Collector Limpets are used to Collect canisters or asteroid chunks within a given area. If the object is not targeted the drone will collect within an area for as long as it is alive. Collector Limpet module can stack as having more than one fitted can deploy as many active limpets as described, one at a time if necessary.

Engineer Modifications Edit
The following modifications can be applied to this module by Engineers to enhance it's abilities:
- Limpets are stored in the ship's cargo hold.
- Limpets are consumed/expired when used. Each limpet gets destroyed after it did its job or a timer ran out.
