The Jupiter Subsea Intelligent Torque Tool – Class 5 Rotary Docking interfaces with subsea production systems, including project specific interfaces with different end effector sockets and is capable of producing torque up to 6 780N·m (5000lbf-ft).
The tool comprises a hydraulic motor, planetary gear box and removable end effectors. In addition the tool provides torque feedback, output turns count, optional docking latches and a visual indication of motor turns.
The tool is designed to allow seamless integration with Zetechtics manufactured Jupiter Subsea Control Systems, however the tool is capable of operating with other systems with suitable hydraulic and electrical interfaces.
When used with a Jupiter 2 Subsea Control System, with the correct software version and configuration, it is possible to determine direction of rotation from the internal quadrature sensors. This is encoded on the single turns count output using Zetechtics’ proprietary turns count electrical interface.
