Developed by Telemetry and Remote SCADA Solutions, a division of Schneider Electric, the battery-powered VC10 wireless valve controller is used to control pneumatic valves in hazardous locations with a functionality that offers natural gas wellhead automation solutions to operators. Based on the patent pending Progressive Pulse Control (PPC) technology, it suits operation of pneumatic valves in a wide range of upstream oil and gas applications. Coupled with the company’s Accutech power management technology, the valve controller can deliver 50,000 autonomous cycles, meaning years of maintenance free operation. One of its two digital output can be configured as a counter for use in plunger arrival systems, while the other can be used with any discreet signal. An integrated pressure sensor is incorporated as a feedback mechanism in the PPC circuit and as a useful diagnostic for wellhead operators. Magnetic switches and an LCD allow for configuration settings in the field without compromising zone restrictions.
