Control and Monitoring

Tank Gauging

Our tank gauging systems utilize a continuous liquid level monitoring system with Pulsed Bubbler Technology, all systems have the ability to monitor virtually any liquid, regardless of viscosity, PH, corrosives, foam, or temperature. Tank gauging system parameters are displayed on custom designed HMI's throughout the facility or can be integrated into an existing facility HMI System.

  • Depths from 0 to 2,000 feet
  • Programmable specific gravity allows application for most all liquids
  • Pneumatic and electronic self-diagnostics

Ballast Control System

Ballast Control Systems provide complete control and monitoring of all facility tank gauging, ballast valves and ballast pumps. Functions of the system would include ballasting, de-ballasting and maintaining proper trim and heel of the vessel. Each system is custom designed as an independent system, with the ability to be interfaced with stability software in real-time mode. Basing the design on an open architecture and utilizing off-the-shelf components from major manufactures, ensures the ease of future upgrades and worldwide availability of replacement parts.

The PLC processors are arranged in a redundant hot-backup configuration connected via redundant fiber optic communications to remote I/O panels throughout the facility. Custom main HMI touchscreen consoles for control and displaying of ballast information are located within the ballast control room and another secondary location. Each remote IO panel contains a HMI touchscreen for local / back-up operations.

System Functions

  • Open / close of all ballast and bilge valves
  • Valve status and position indication
  • Start / stop control of all ballast and bilge pumps
  • Pump status and running indication
  • Tank gauging information
  • Draft information
  • Data logging
  • System overall health status and diagnostics

Bulk / Liquid Control System

Bulk / Liquid Control Systems provide real-time monitoring and control for the complete facility Bulk / Liquid material handling components. Bulk and Liquid Systems can be independent / stand-alone or integrated into an existing Vessel Management System or Drilling Control System. Utilizing state-of-the-art, off-the-shelf electronic components and customized HMI solutions, these systems will integrate with new electric and/or pneumatic operated valves or with existing facility valves and P-tanks / material tanks. Contact Jelec for more information on your Bulk / Liquid Control System requirements.

Anchor Line Monitoring

Jelec's anchor line monitoring system monitors the payout and speed in single- or multi-winch applications. Pairing with any running line tensiometer allows for continuous monitoring of tension in the anchor cables and provides alarm if dangerous tension levels are measured. Our system's remote interface panels are watertight so that installation near winch controls is viable. Line status of each winch is shown on the HMI alongside the calculated line tension. Additional details for active lines are viewed by simply clicking on the screen image of each individual winch.

Helideck and Weather Monitoring

Our Helideck Monitoring System (HMS) analyzes helideck motion, vessel motion, and weather conditions to determine if conditions are safe (within safe operational limits).

The system displays real-time weather and vessel motion measurements in a user-friendly HMI. Landing conditions are evaluated and displayed clearly according to CAP and HCA standards. We offer a range of systems based on your requirements: From a simple single sensor solution for weather monitoring only, to a complete standards compliant solution with a fully-redundant sensor suite, weather reporting, and historian capabilities. We can customize your HMS to fit your exact needs.

Distributed Control System (DCS)

Our DCS is based a modular concept, that allows us to combine control systems, monitoring and advanced instrumentation into a compact and powerful package. The modular concept allows for flexible system integration and configuration, while still satisfying all essential safety and control requirements. Typically, our DCS is used for drilling jack-ups, tender rigs and barges.

Asset Information Management

Jelec Asset Management (JAM) is an asset information management system. It is used to organize and centralize information about your assets. With JAM you can manage your asset information from any network connected device (PC/iOS/Android)

  • Organize assets by location (rig, area, and project)
  • Keep track of the individual parts of each asset
  • Upload and associated files with your assets/parts
  • Access and view previously uploaded files
  • Update files and track changes
  • Review all changes made in the system
  • Revert changes made to assets, parts and uploaded files
  • Print QR codes to identify your assets in the field

The salient feature of the system is a 3D user interface. Via this interface you can explore and interact with detail 3D models of your assets. Click on parts of an asset model to inspect the associated fails and details.

JAM Usage

Jelec now offers JAM with select products.

Version Management & Disaster Recovery

We provide a Version Management & Disaster Recovery (VMADR) system for your PLC software. Our VMADR system safely connects to your process network and monitors your software. Any time a change (authorized, unauthorized or accidental) in your software is detected, our system will automatically create a backup and catalog it. This enables disaster recovery, where you can easily rollback any changes. Furthermore, it enables simple examination of all changes.

Our VMADR system runs on a user specified schedule, and checks line by line for any changes to your software. When any discrepancy is detected, our system will notify multiple email recipients that there may be a problem. You may then examine the discrepancy, and rollback the changes to a previously approved version.
