Communication on offshore platforms is becoming ever more important. In the future, platforms will be operated without personnel, thus making the transmission of information essential. Current systems are also already networked using communication cables or by wireless. This form of communication can be used to transfer measurements for controls, machine or sensor states for predictive maintenance or CCTV for video surveillance of the system.
HUBER+SUHNER can supply a wide range of products and system solutions to ensure this communication. These include CAT of fieldbus data cables as well as fiber optic cables which ensure smooth data communication even in extreme and aggressive conditions as well as in potentially explosive environments (high and low temperatures, saltwater and potentially explosive zones 1 and 21).
Wireless communication is also becoming increasingly established. Remote systems are controlled by wireless control and crew rooms are fitted with Wi-Fi networks to enable Internet access and supply the control room in the field with remote data.
