Having a remote monitoring system for cathodic protection on your building is an important part of the overall maintenance program. This helps to ensure that the cathodic protection is in working order and that any problems are detected early, before they become too costly to fix.
Data collected by the system
Using the Cathodic Protection Remote Monitoring System to collect data is a great way to verify the effectiveness of your cathodic protection system. It also eliminates safety concerns.
Using a Cathodic Protection Remote Monitoring System is convenient and economical. It provides information about the status of the system’s performance, and helps operators determine how well it is protecting underground metal objects from corrosion.
The data collected by the cathodic protection remote monitoring system is transmitted to a monitoring unit. It can be stored in the device’s onboard data storage. The device then sends the data to a base station. The base station converts the reading into a signal and forwards the signal to the RTU.
Typically, the cathodic protection remote monitoring system collects data once an hour. However, it can be programmed to collect data at specified intervals. The frequency of interrogations is dependent on the type of data being collected. This can range from once per minute to once a day.
Configuration of the system
CP remote monitoring is one of the most important tools for pipeline operators. It allows a pipeline owner to monitor the health of cathodic protection circuits, which prevents corrosion of the pipe. It also gives a continuous stream of real time data to the operator.
The most common cause of the corrosion on pipelines is electrical surges. These can occur when a power line is near the pipe. These surges can also be caused by foreign lines that are connected to the pipeline. These lines may include water lines, which may cross the pipeline. A foreign line can cause an electrical short in the pipeline, which drains the available CP current.
PWATCH-2’s Remote Monitoring System
Having a reliable cathodic protection remote monitoring system is an important asset for pipeline operators. It provides continuous real-time data and monitoring to reduce the risk of corrosion. Even though you have a reliable cathodic protection system, you need a CP remote monitoring system to keep your CP assets intact. These units are well insulated and allow uninterrupted real time data to be collected.
The PWATCH-2 CP Data Logger’s remote monitoring system is designed to be easy to use and integrate with existing information systems. It provides a graphical data display, and supports fast network operation. It has an effective reporting plug-in that can be used to detect problems in the system and alert the operator.
