    • " It drills a better hole with reduced torque and drag."
    Description

    • Advanced Technology:  The AMPHION Integrated Drilling Control System is a high-availability integrated rig control system for managing, controlling, and monitoring rig floor equipment in independent and activity-based operations.  The system is designed to allow operators to focus on Drilling, Tripping, and Stand-Building processes by providing an efficient and intuitive rig floor command center.
    • Interactive Controls:  The AMPHION Integrated Drilling Control System is interactive through the use of color-graphic data and control screens viewed on any of the AMPHION Touchscreens integrated into the operator workstations. Touchscreens allow the Driller, Assistant Driller, or Pipehandler to supervise and control all drilling-related functions.
    • Multi-Tool Control Cabinet:  The main elements of the AMPHION Integrated Drilling Control System are the Multi-Tool Control Cabinet, which houses control modules and network devices, one or more operator workstations, and one or more control modules to drive the rig equipment. All modules include an AMPHION Tool Controller, communication hardware, and user software interface functionality. The design avoids single point failures through a robust network with redundant touchscreens running in parallel.
