CP Scanet

World's First GSM based Wireless CP SCADA System

Your Online Monitoring System for Any Time / Any Where Access to CP DATA

CPSCANETTM is a SCADA system, designed keeping Cathodic Protection systems in mind. It allows realtime online monitoring and control of all key CP parameters to ensure optimal performance of the structure being protected. It also eliminates the need for lengthy, time consuming and error prone traditional method of manually recording the PSP's at hundreds of test stations along the length of the structure. The entire CP system can be monitored and controlled sitting in your office or for that matter from anywhere in the world, provided you have the authority to do so.

A typical CP SCADA network consists of intelligent Remote Terminal Units (iRTUs) distributed throughout the plant complex or along the pipeline and interfaced with individual Transformer Rectifier (TR) units. All the iRTUs are networked using a single or hybrid mix of communication systems such as existing telephone exchanges, GSM wireless cellular network, dedicated point to point cable network, satellite or radio wireless networks and connected to a central computer or network of computers running CPSCANET visualization software.

iTRU Transformer Rectifier Unit

CIMCON's iTRU is a result of our endeavor to revolutionize the age old CP Systems and is destined to replace the conventional TR Units. These units are remotely operable, designed with built-in control, provide monitoring and CP data storage options, generate large amounts of current while maintaining compact size and light weight, have low heat dissipation and excellent efficiency, resulting in lowest possible cost per ampere.

True Synchronized Off-Potential Measurement

iTRU offers true synchronized OFF potential measurement using GPS based time synchronization for all geographically distributed iTRUs. Typical accuracies in time, range from better than 500 nanoseconds to 1 millisecond anywhere on earth.

Computerized Test Station Units

Computerized Test Station Units (CTSUs) are stand-alone, real time data acquisition and storage units designed specifically for logging of CP parameters for cross-country pipelines. Primarily unmanned in nature, computerized performance analysis of the CP System for cross-country pipelines has acquired mandatory status in today's O&G transportation sector. CIMCON’s CTSU offers an excellent price-to-performance ratio with low installation costs and very low power consumption.

Portable Handheld Reader

Portable handheld reader units facilitate collection of data from remotely mounted Computerized Test Station Units. These units are especially useful in situation where normal modes of communications are either not available or are economically not viable. Each reader can accommodate data from several test stations and once the unit is back at the base station it can download the entire data to a computer for further analysis and visualization using the software provided with the unit. The reader unit is battery operated and does not require any external power to operate while in the field.
