Multiwell acquisition unit
Collect and manage data from permanent downhole monitoring systems for improved analysis and sharing.
The next-generation IWIS frequency-shift-keying interface card (IFIC NG) provides communication and power for WellWatcher monitoring system FSK gauges in subsea wells. This card complies with Intelligent Well Interface Standardization (IWIS) specifications for accurate, reliable data acquisition.
The IFIC NG is able to power up to eight gauges on one cable. The card provides the subsea network with both raw data and ready-to-use engineering values and is able to support all WellWatcher system FSK gauges.
By measuring and transmitting diagnostic parameters, the IFIC NG can verify the integrity of the subsea control module’s umbilical link and the downhole signal path. It can validate the digital electronics and card-to-surface communication channels as well as its own capacity to power the downhole gauge by taking cable current and voltage measurements.
