Cathodic protection monitoring for pipelines

Description
Steel pipelines are protected against corrosion through cathodic protection. The cathodic protection needs to be maintained. This means that the voltage and current need to be within the defined boundary. With this remote monitoring device the voltage and current can be measured on a continuous basis. As a result damages and degradation is detected earlier, operational costs are reduced and asset lifetime is increased.

Specifications

  • Easy installation by smartphone or tablet with direct connectivity to device 

-Modern LTE-M mobile communication allows for communication with device even during setup. 

  • 8 channel measurement with galvanic isolation

-3 channel AC+DC and additional current AC+DC measurement for a coupon 

  • On/off measurements and data logging combined

-Define your own desired measurement frequency (1X/5 minutes to 1X/week) and carry out more frequent samplings for stray current measurements (every second for 5minutes or every second for 24 hours). Automatic calculation of min, max and standard deviation for rectifier connected devices. 

  • Coupon measurement with relay

-Carry out coupon measurements including AC+DC current measurement

  • Time synchronisation and coordinates 

-Electronic time synchronisation allows for synchronized switching of rectifiers and test points and measurements. 

  • Rectifier switching and control

-The device can also switch rectifiers with an external relay. In addition with a 0-10V/4-20mA output signal it can also control any rectifier.

  • Cloud based advanced monitoring software

-Create alerts, monitor thresholds, assign actions for your CP personnel all from one always accessible dashboard

-Insert manual measurements including standard routes
