Our team in Leeds have successfully completed FAT of our Power Distribution System Low Voltage Expansion Junction Box (PDS LV Expansion JB).
This Isotek product is used to switch 110V 3-phase, 110V single phase and 155VDC power, Ethernet comms and video signals, from our PDS Pods to various subsea tools and other power consumers on seabed equipment.
PDS Pods switch redundant 1kV surface feeds to high-voltage consumers (HPUs, welding power supplies, etc.) and derives, switches, and monitors lower voltage (110VAC, 155VDC) instrument supplies for on-tool use.
The Junction Box is oil-filled and pressure compensated for up to 3000m subsea depth. Fully remote controlled, this technically complex device is simply operated from the surface via an Ethernet link through the PDS Pods.
This unit is scheduled for delivery to the customer in June and due to be installed onto working equipment. A follow-up order of two further units has been received for this project.
If you have requirements for power distribution on any equipment that needs 110VAC, 155VDC or 1kV supplies, Ethernet, and video, please send us an enquiry by completing our contact form.
