This fifth-generation subsea electronics module draws on our field-proven technologies based on more than 30 years of subsea experience. Ruggedized to exceed ISO 13628-6 2006 requirements, the radical new design optimizes flexibility, durability, reliability and obsolescence mitigation.
Since its unveiling in November 2008, the VetcoGray SemStar5™ has been critically acclaimed, including receiving a Spotlight on New Technology Award at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) 2009.
Flexible Communications. An internal Ethernet data bus supports TCP/IP with flexible subsea communications options.
Proven Durability. Extensively qualified beyond the requirements of ISO13628 Part 6 2006. Highly accelerated life testing (HALT) program validates ruggedness and reliability.
Enhanced Reliability. Key features focus on reliability: Single board computer, reduction internal wirings, simplified press fit connectors, built-in diagnostics for each functional circuit board, and redundant internal power and communication busses.
Obsolescence Management. Offers backwards compatibility for legacy subsea electronics modules and built-in obsolescence management strategies for electronic components.
Industry Standard Interfaces. Meets and exceeds industry standard SIIS (Levels 1, 2 and 3) and IWIS.
