Consistent and synchronized cylinder control can help minimize potential risks during a rig up. This integrates the telescoping cylinders’ internal positioning sensors with a human machine interfaces package. The Phoenix Mast Raise Automation System optimizes cylinder scaling and performance by improving communication between the lifting cylinders, hydraulic power unit, and control interface.
This control package results in more consistent and synchronized control of the mast raise cylinders to less than one inch variance between each cylinder. It allows the rig up to be completed quickly by reducing cylinder positioning differentials that can stall the mast raise sequence.
