Field Data PC promotes productivity for CP professionals.

April 26, 2016

Targeting cathodic protection (CP) professionals, Allegro QX™ is powered by quick-charge Li-ion battery that provides up to 14 hr of continuous in-field use. Integrated digital voltmeter (DVM) delivers 0.25% accuracy when reading DC voltage, even in presence of up to 100 Vac interference, and tactile QWERTY keyboard features full number pad and hourglass shape that reduces slippage. Other features include WAAS-enabled internal GPS and glare-resistant, color VGA display. Read More

Pipeline Compliance System optimizes traceability.

January 28, 2016

With change logging capability, PCS Axis v1.10 enables pipeline operators to track database changes to prove traceability, pinpoint and resolve cathodic protection data errors so they don't come up during audit, identify malicious or unintended changes, and view change history for specific measurement. Program automatically embeds photos in users' PCS databases rather than external drive. It also offers bridge importer and form creation and editing features. Read More

Remote Monitoring Unit helps prevent induced AC corrosion.

December 2, 2015

With Bullhorn RM4210, operators can identify areas where AC may be source of corrosion, ensure that AC mitigation systems are working correctly, and know when AC current density conditions change so that mitigation systems can be adjusted. Remote monitoring unit measures AC and DC coupon current density, AC and DC pipe-to-soil, native pipe-to-soil, instant off, and PCR AC current. Measurements are automatically uploaded via satellite communication to Bullhorn Web, a web-based asset manager. Read More

Pipeline Analysis Tool captures, reports cathodic protection data.

June 12, 2015

Pipeline Compliance System (PCS) Axis v1.9 lets operators capture, analyze, report, and act on cathodic protection data for pipelines. While fostering compliance with PHMSA regulations, solution also aids in monitoring inspection intervals, optimizing geographic routing, and generating reports. Specific capabilities include bulk records adjustment, multiple readings capture, survey route import/export, granular test point data capture, and user-based roles/permissions. Read More

GPS-Synchronized Current Interrupter includes built-in relay.

March 19, 2015

Powered from AC or DC source, MicroMax GPS350 integrates Normally Closed AC/DC solid state relay that can interrupt up to 60 A with on/off cycles of less than 4 sec, and 80 A with 4-sec cycles or longer. Relay also provides voltage suppression which absorbs inductive energy released during on/off switching. Supplied in hardened enclosure for extreme conditions, MicroMax GPS350 can be programmed using built-in keypad or via USB. Unit functions in continuous, daily, dated, and interference modes.

Solid State Relay integrates voltage suppression.

November 3, 2014

With transient voltage suppression technology, 100 A DC Normally Closed SSR ensures inductive energy released during on and off switching is absorbed. Switch will default to closed position if interrupter fails, providing continuous cathodic protection. Unlike AC SSR, which requires up to 24 V across switch to operate, DC SSR operates from 100 V down to 0 V. With fast-cycle interruption, relay is specifically designed for oil and gas companies conducting fast-cycle surveys. Read More

Solid State Relay provides continuous cathodic protection.

May 15, 2014

Suited for oil and gas industry, 20 A DC Solid State Relay is used for current interruption and switching during close interval surveying of pipelines. Because it is normally closed, switch will default to closed position if interrupter fails, and current will continue to flow over pipeline, protecting it against corrosion. Relay is compatible with all AI's interruption-enabled remote monitoring units and interrupters. Read More

Remote Monitoring Unit maximizes gas compressor uptime.

May 8, 2014

By alerting customers within minutes of compressor failure, Bullhorn RM3012 enables immediate action. Built-in backup battery ensures that even when primary power source is compromised, customers continue to receive alarms. In addition, RM3012 reads annunciator alarm codes, rpm, runtime, pressure, and temperature via Modbus. It then communicates data using satellite network to Bullhorn Asset Tracker web interface, which provides immediate visibility of unit status and alarms.

Remote Monitoring Unit provides accurate measurements.

October 14, 2013

Used to monitor cathodic protection assets remotely, Bullhorn RM4150 helps operators meet 49 CFR 192/195 regulations and protect pipelines by collecting and communicating rectifier measurements using GSM networks. Cellular RMU has 5 analog channels and 2 digital channels to monitor rectifiers on pipelines, well casings, tanks, and other assets. Measurement capabilities, accurate to 1% of reading, cover AC and DC volts and amps, pipe-to-soil potential, shunts, instant off, and line power presence. Read More

Remote Wireless Monitors offer voice notification.

August 20, 2003

Bullhorn Monitors allow user to configure alarms, control equipment, and receive data through secure website. They use MicroBurst(TM) wireless network from to transfer information from remote equipment to central database. With voice notification feature, data packets travel from Bullhorn device to server, where system checks to see if alarm conditions are met. Alarm is then sent to up to 5 cell phone numbers until notification is acknowledged. Read More
