C-Kore Sensor Monitor

C-Kore Sensor Monitor

The C-Kore Sensor Monitor is a fast and automated subsea tool for reading subsea sensors. It supports an extensive range of pressure, temperature, positional and other sensors and does not require any subsea infrastructure or downlines to operate.

It can be used for construction, fault-finding and decommissioning campaigns. Compared to using downlines it is fast and simple to deploy to get accurate data on the state of subsea assets. By measuring directly subsea, substantial vessel time and cost savings are made, allowing more work to be completed in shorter campaigns. The Sensor Monitor is simple to use while remaining a very versatile product.

When installing new equipment or decommissioning, the Sensor Monitor can be used to display and log sensor readings either before the SCM and data-link are available or after they have been removed. This information can provide vital feedback on the state of a well that would otherwise be unmonitored. By using the C-Kore Sensor Monitor during decommissioning, the wellhead pressure readings can be monitored to ensure safe working conditions for divers and prevent the unintended release of hydrocarbons into the environment.

As a fault-finding tool the C-Kore Sensor Monitor can quickly identify faulty sensors, preventing unnecessary change-outs and troubleshooting, all of which adds up to significant vessel time and cost savings. It can be used in tandem with the C-Kore Cable Monitor, which is used to check the continuity and insulation resistance of jumpers and SCMs to find other possible fault sources.

The unit is powered by a high-capacity rechargeable battery for stand-alone operation. Simple user configuration is possible with a plug-and-play USB connection to choose what the unit will test and when. Every result is data-logged, with large internal storage allowing extensive data to be gathered.

Configuration

C-Kore PC Configuration USB

A copy of the C-Kore Config App is saved on the internal storage of every C-Kore unit. When the C-Kore system is connected to a PC using the supplied USB cable a removable drive will appear in Windows. Just start the program to edit configuration settings and download results using a simple interface.

The configuration application works on PCs running Windows XP, Vista, 7 or 10. The software runs directly and does not require any special installation steps.

Physical

The C-Kore units are small and self-contained, allowing for simple handling on the deck and subsea. To save time they can be deployed in the ROV tooling tray, diver cage or basket.

The exact unit specification varies with the measurement connector type, details for a typical unit are given below:

  • T-Shape Dimensions: 355 x 258 x 124 mm

  • In-Line Dimensions: 357 x 112 x 88 mm  (without ROV handle)

  • Weight (in air): 5 – 7kg

  • Depth Rating: 3000 msw
