Valve remote control system

The Skarpenord computerized valve control is a centralized system for control/monitoring of valves and hydraulic power unit. The valve remote control functions are carried out via customized mimics on the screen. The operation is conducted on a touch screen or by track ball/keyboard. The solution minimizes the need for cabling between the different units.

The control Station (PC), Logic Controller (PLC) and operator panel in the SVC are interconnected by a bus cable. This will simplify the installation work. All control components are produced by renowned companies with worldwide technical support.

Valve Control Station for control room:

  • Control computer station with onscreen mimics for easy operation
  • Operation by pointing device or touch screen to activate any valve
  • Position/status indicated on mimic
  • Computer stations and operator panels allow pararell operation from different locations
  • Alarm system with logging of alarms and printer support may easily be added

Remote control/monitoring of HPU:

  • Monitoring and control of hydraulic power unit from mimic screen on computer station
  • Alarms, warnings and hydraulic oil pressure visualized and logged

Pump control:

  • Control and monitoring of pumps from the on-screen mimic
  • Pump status, power concumption and pressures may be displayed on-screen

Data from external systems:

  • Valve control station may be connected to any external system for visualizing data
  • Interface with other systems by standard or tailor made protocols

Solenoid Valve Cabinet:

  • I/O units and PLC located in SVC
  • The PLC utilizes a NC common alarm dry contact for connection to ships IAC
  • The locic controller in the SVC runs independently from the control room computer and has a dedicated operator panel mounted in cabinet door
  • The control system will still run from the operator panel, even if the control computer is disabled
  • The operator panel utilizes a powerful tool for maintenance work and as backup control station
