Schneider Electric's VC10 Valve Controller is used to control pneumatic valves in hazardous locations
Telemetry and Remote SCADA Solutions, a division of Schneider Electric, announced the launch of the VC10 Valve Controller to its Accutech wireless sensor network product line. A battery-powered wireless field device, the VC10 is built to control pneumatic valves in hazardous locations.
Using Progressive Pulse Control (PPC) technology, the VC10 is designed for operation of pneumatic valves. Coupled with Accutech’s power management technology, the VC10 is engineered to be capable of operating in the field autonomously for over 50,000 cycles.
Included with the VC10 are two digital inputs, the first configured as a counter for use in plunger arrival systems and the second for use with any discreet signal. An integrated pressure sensor is designed to be incorporated as a feedback mechanism in the PPC circuit and as a diagnostic for wellhead operators. Magnetic switches and a LCD display are made to allow for configuration settings in the field without compromising zone restrictions.
