MacArtney, together with its long time partner Moog Focal, has completed the sale of ten Electrical Slip Rings and Fibre Optic Rotary Joints.
The sales will see the Electrical Slip Rings and FORJs utilized on umbilical winches for work class ROVs and trenchers aboard vessels completing cable burial and offshore pipeline installations across the globe.
With the Electrical Slip Rings and FORJs the diagnostic board and multiplexer utilizes the Moog Focal Optical Monitoring System and provides a link between seabed and surface. The OMS can log and display data from the multiplexers and slip ring sensors, acting as a central hub for monitoring the condition of the entire communication system.
Ron Voerman, managing director of MacArtney Benelux, said, “Due to the OMS we can now continually monitor how the optical telemetry link between the control unit and the ROV is performing, meaning that predictive maintenance can be done in a much more effective way and extend the lifespan of the slip ring and other components significantly.”
