It is comprised of a fully redundant, third party subsea electronic module (SEM) with transducers, an oil-filled, pressure compensated, electro-hydraulic (E/H) housing, and a lower valve unit (LVU).
The SEM provides the acoustic communication link and electronic logic. The E/H Housing contains readback pressure transducers and switches and solenoid controlled pilot valves to open and close the function valves.
The LVU contains the all of the BOP function valves and manifolds.
The system can be controlled via mobile command unit, or via optional, compatible rig/ship acoustic telemetry system.
