Oil & Gas Products - CTSU-Computerized Test Station Unit

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.

  • Dedicated data logging unit for cathodic protection of cross country pipelines
  • Designed to directly connect to CP field inputs without requiring external transducers thereby reducing cost
  • Capable of withstanding electrical surges prevalent in any CP installation
  • Allows measurement of AC interference voltage due to over head transmission line on Pipe to Soil Potentials
  • High resolution 16 bit Analog to Digital converter ensures very high measurement accuracy for low range PSP values
  • Eliminates common mode noise signals prevalent in CP installation using differential measurement for all inputs
  • Highly configurable to meet your specific application needs
  • Configure logging and other parameters from remote locations. Logging frequency can be configured from several times every second to once a year.
  • Logged data can be retained in memory for upto 10 years using battery backup.
  • Supports data transfer to web server for web-based visualization from anywhere in the world
  • Multiple communication modes such as wired, telephone, Satellite, GSM/GPRS using cellular network and VHF/UHF based Radio network
  • Low power models for solar applications

Hand-Held Portable 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 economical 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.
