Manipulator Control System

The leaders in subsea control

Zetechtics are world leaders in subsea control systems for ROV Intervention tooling to the oil and gas energy markets, providing proven industry solutions many of which are continually working in high integrity applications.



Jupiter 2 Proportional Manipulator Control System

  • Can proportionally operate Subsea Manipulators

  • Option 1 - Manipulator Control consisting of: 7 x NG3 Proportional Flow Control Bi-DirectionalValves
  • Option 2 - As above with additional 1 x NG6 Press & Bi-Direct Flow Control Prop Valve &
    • 4 x NG3 Bi-directional Solenoid Valves

Zetechtics designed and built a new variant of the Jupiter 2 ROV intervention tooling control system specifically for proportional control of manipulators. With two Jupiter 2 Control System options – one with manipulator control and additional Torque Tool control (housed in one enclosure) and the second unit – controlling just the manipulator. This provides first class control of manipulators such as the Schilling Atlas Arm and other industry Manipulators providing a High Quality, Low Cost solution.

Zetechtics’ range of Jupiter Subsea Control Systems offer one of the most advanced solutions for the control and instrumentation of hydraulic tools and systems integrated into a single unit. Our ultra-compact and light weight units provide both simple on/off, proportional pressure and bi-directional flow control.

Expandable functionality can be achieved through the use of Master/Slave arrangements or system modification. Jupiter systems can interface with our High Flow Valve Packs or third party equipment, as required.

All systems come with the powerful Jupiter software, which allows total user control over the operation of the Jupiter system. Software features include Data-logging, Automatic Calibration of Torque Tools, User Customisable Set-up and comprehensive diagnostics.

All supplied systems are supported in the field through a dedicated Technical Support Helpline available 24/7 via phone or e-mail.  In addition, we offer a program of Certified Jupiter training courses that can be delivered throughout the world.

Software Upgrades are available free of charge.
