Engineering Marvel – The CPI SL6000 30 Meter Hardened Linear Position Sensor Since the introduction of our SL series hardened draw-wire Linear Position Sensors almost 20 years ago, we’ve learned a lot about long stroke hydraulics from our hydraulic cylinder… Continue reading The SL6000 Subsea Draw Wire Breaks the 100 Ft Barrier
As oilfield engineering enjoys a resurgence of interest and investment, companies continue to look to advancements in technology to both reduce costs, and improve the safety of offshore drilling operations. In particular, active heave compensation systems use advanced hydraulic cylinders… Continue reading Heave Compensation Systems for Offshore Drilling
As Oil and Gas companies seek to expand and extend their retrieval capabilities both on and especially offshore, concerns about safety and exploration costs are never far from mind. Things have come a long way since the tragedy of Deepwater… Continue reading CPI Subsea Sensors Can Detect Reservoir Tank Levels 2 Miles Under the Sea
The environment in which the search for oil is conducted beneath the surface of the seas is ever changing and often treacherous. It changes constantly due to the ebb and flow of the surface of the water and operation during… Continue reading Motion Compensation System Hydraulics Can Get A Whole Lot Smarter.
We have to look at the CPI sensor as having two subsystems: 1.) The mechanical draw-wire mechanism which reduces the long travel of the draw wire to a highly accurate, directly proportional short stroke, and 2.) the electronics that very… Continue reading Reinventing Draw Wire Sensors Part 1 – Mechanical Revolution
Those of you following our blog for the last few years, already know a few things about our linear position sensor products: They are based on a sophisticated re-implementation of the draw-wire class of linear position measurement systems, proven in… Continue reading A New Angle On Linear Position Sensing
When CPI introduced its first version of a harsh duty draw wire sensor over a decade ago, it was because one of our large customers making construction vehicles needed something that would hold up better under harsh outdoor conditions and… Continue reading The Expanding list of Harsh Duty Draw Wire Sensor applications
