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.

Provides Continuous Cathodic Protection to Pipelines; Boosts Surveyor Productivity

AUSTIN, Texas, -- American Innovations (AI), protecting people and the environment with compliance solutions for the oil and gas industry, introduces its industry-first 20 Amp DC Normally Closed (NC) Solid State Relay (SSR).

In partnership with a worldwide leader in solid state switching technology, AI brings to market this new relay, used for current interruption and switching during close interval surveying. Oil and gas companies regularly conduct close interval surveys to assess the effectiveness of installed cathodic protection systems on underground pipelines.

The 20A DC NC SSR provides:

--  Continuous cathodic protection - Because it's a normally closed relay, the switch will default to the "closed" position if the interrupter fails. Current will continue to flow over the pipeline, protecting it against corrosion.
--  Speedier surveys - This SSR is designed for those conducting fast cycle interruption. Because surveyors won't have to wait around for long cycle times, they'll realize a tremendous productivity boost.
--  Superior reliability - Being solid state and not mercury, this relay facilities cleaner cycles with minimal spiking, making it far more reliable in fast cycle scenarios.
--  Full compatibility - The SSR is compatible with all interruption-enabled AI remote monitoring units and interrupters.

"This new relay fills a need our customers have to continually improve the productivity and reliability of their surveys," says Ed Kruft, AI President. "Additionally, it's yet another tool AI provides customers to help them remain compliant with federal regulations and ultimately prolong the life of their valuable infrastructures."
