The Vertex is a compressor controller designed for use on industrial sized axial or centrifugal compressors. This controller includes specifically designed algorithms and logic to start, stop, control, and protect industrial compressors driven by a stationary speed motors, variable frequency drive motors, or turbines. OEM qualified algorithms are used within the Vertex control for straight-through, iso-cooled, double flow, stand alone, and back-to-back compressor applications.
Configurable Control Solutions
Woodward offers user-configurable controllers designed to control and protect industrial-sized axial or centrifugal compressors with one or two recycle loops. These standard off-the-shelf controllers are field configurable, allowing OEMs and users to easily configure/select the specific control algorithm required for a particular compressor loop and application.
The Vertex-Pro is an anti-surge controller for control and protection of industrial-sized, motor-driven axial and centrifugal compressors. This purpose-built controller is available in standard off-the-shelf models for 1-2 recycle loop applications and custom models for 3-4 recycle loop applications.
Built on Woodward’s field-proven MicroNet™ platform, Vertex-Pro is available in simplex or dual-redundant models. All models utilize the MicroNet’s compact 8-slot chassis and robust field termination modules. Simplex models include one of every module while dual-redundant models include two of every module, allowing users to perform both bumpless on-line program changes and on-line module replacements.
