  • The skid control system offers a powerful control system that integrates dual torque tool control and deployment or skid functions into a single unit with sensor inputs and powerful software control.


    Drill Support, Field Support, Construction

    • Dual proportional pressure and flow control 0-210 bar (0-3,045psi), 0-32 L/min (0-8.4 gpm), torque and speed calibrated
    • 8 x Bi-directional solenoid valves (11 L/min) (2.9gpm) adjustable pressure and flow on each valve, other options available
    • Strain gauge interfaces accurate to 0.5% designed to handle large strain gauge offsets
    • Simplify skid design, SIT and in field integration
    • 'Closed-Box' configuration, no internal access required for links, fuses, datalink settings
    • Fully secure calibration and setup
    • Various external sensors available
