Battery-powered valve controllerThe VC10 Valve Controller is a battery-powered wireless field device 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 power management technology, the VC10 is capable of operating in the field autonomously for over 50,000 cycles, which equates to years of maintenance free operation.
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 incorporated as a feedback mechanism in the PPC circuit and as a useful diagnostic for wellhead operators. Magnetic switches and a LCD display allow for configuration settings in the field without compromising zone restrictions. The VC10 is protected by an industry leading 3-year warranty.
