The Jupiter Subsea Intelligent Torque Tool – Class 1 – 4 Rotary Docking interfaces with subsea production systems, including project specific interfaces where only the end effector socket is different, and is capable of producing torque up to 2,711N.m (2,000 lbf-ft).
The tool comprises a hydraulic motor, planetary gear box and sprung loaded, nested, multi-class sockets. The tool also provides torque feed-back, turns count, torque range sensing & visual indication of motor turns.
The tool is designed to allow seamless integration with Zetechtics manufactured Jupiter Subsea Control System, 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, together with gear box status.
