Valve Controller for Wellhead Automation

The VC10 Valve Controller has been added to the Accutech wireless sensor network product line.

A battery-powered wireless field device, the VC10 is used to control pneumatic valves in hazardous locations with unique functionality that offers optimized natural gas wellhead automation solutions to operators. Using a patent pending technology called Progressive Pulse Control (PPC), the VC10 is ideal for operation of pneumatic valves in a wide range of upstream oil and gas applications. Coupled with Accutech’s state-of-the-art power management technology, the VC10 is capable of operating in the field autonomously for over 50,000 cycles, equal to years of operation. Together with other Accutech field devices, the VC10 lets users deploy entirely wireless battery-powered wellhead automation systems without the costs of wiring, trenching and maintenance, with Class 1, Div 1 certification.
