Galvanic Cathodic Protection Remote Monitor
What is Galvanic Cathodic Protection Remote Monitor Used For?
Galvanic Cathodic Protection Remote Monitor is battery powered, designed to enable remote monitoring and testing of galvanic anode installations where there is a lack of mains AC power.
The remote monitoring facility enables daily function monitoring and programmable performance monitoring, without attending the site.
Galvanic Cathodic Protection Remote Monitor is specifically designed to enable galvanic anode testing of steel in concrete applications per the testing requirements listed in BS EN ISO 12696, which includes:
Measurement of ON and Instant Off reference electrode potentials
Measurement of the anode to the cathode current
Remotely interrupt the anode to cathode current at a selected date and time for a programmable period while measuring reference electrode potentials (depolarisation testing)
Remotely reconnect the anode to cathode following a scheduled depolarisation test period
Galvanic Cathodic Protection Remote Monitor Product Description
Galvanic Cathodic Protection Remote Monitor is a sophisticated programable communication and interrogation tool which is battery powered and fitted with a permanent SIM card for remote communication.
The units communicate with a website at a pre-determined interval, transmitting site data and receiving user-specific monitoring programs.
The units are designed using a sleep/wake operational philosophy to preserve battery life while maintaining user access and data accessibility via a web page user interface portal. The web portal can be accessed via normal computer or mobile device browsers and enables data analysis, data download, and equipment programming remotely.
Each unit is supplied with two batteries and programmed for seamless battery switchover to provide uninterrupted performance for up to 6 years.
The equipment can also be interrogated directly on-site using hard-wired computer connection for data access and programming locally. Each unit is fitted with a removable 8GB SD card which provides a fail-safe backup of historical monitoring data.
The equipment is supplied with a 1 year Web portal license and supporting SIM card coverage, an annual license is then required for subsequent years to maintain the SIM card communication and provide web portal access.
The equipment can be supplied as a standalone unit or mounted in an optional vandal-resistant, weather-proof enclosure for easy installation and protection.
Where Can Galvanic Cathodic Protection Remote Monitor Be Used?
Galvanic Cathodic Protection Remote Monitor can be used on all galvanic anode applications in all exposure conditions, including atmospherically exposed reinforced concrete structures, buried or immersed steel, or reinforced concrete structures.
The equipment enables remote system interrogation of up to four anode zones including:
monitoring of individual anode to cathode zone currents.
remotely disconnecting the anodes from the structure to enable instant off potential and depolarisation potential testing.
measure reference electrode potentials including On, Instant Off, and depolarised potentials following anode to cathode disconnection.
measure coupon current of up to four fixed coupons connected to the structure.
An additional two, un-monitored anode zones, can be connected through the unit and disconnected at the same time as the monitored anode zones, to prevent reference electrode potential interference from adjacent anode zones during the testing cycle.
Technical Benefits of Galvanic Cathodic Protection Remote Monitor
Galvanic Cathodic Protection Remote Monitor enables regular and programable interrogation of installed galvanic anode systems remotely without having to travel to the site.
The system is easy to install, requires no additional AC power for operation, and is relatively maintenance-free. The units are designed to conserve battery power by using the sleep-wake operational philosophy which can provide a performance of up to 6 years
Secure and user-friendly web access via normal web browser, no need for extra software or hardware, and users can monitor multiple units and sites from a single private web login.
All data can be downloaded from the web portal in CSV format for further interrogation manipulation and assessment.
Secure data access and back-up via built-in SD card installed onto each unit and 1 year free SIM card and Web access to help get you started.
