American Innovations Introduces New Technology Platform for Cathodic Protection

Intuitive Software with Real-Time Mapping on a Rugged Tablet for Periodic and Close Interval Surveys

Austin, Texas, Nov. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- American Innovations, Ltd. (AI), the leader in solutions for the Cathodic Protection (CP) industry, announced today the launch of a new software platform that increases operational efficiency for periodic and close interval surveys. CartoPac Cathodic Protection software gives users data visualization and mapping capabilities in a user interface designed to simplify the data collection process. The software runs on the seven-inch Mesa 3 rugged tablet and the Allegro AX field data PC, with AI's patented Digital Voltmeter technology to ensure highly accurate measurements.

CartoPac Field Integration, an extension of the CartoPac brand AI acquired in 2019, adds to the company's extensive suite of hardware and software platforms that deliver the most complete toolkit for Cathodic Protection professionals. The new solutions expand the company's position as a leader for mobile enterprise data solutions for Cathodic Protection in the oil and gas pipeline industry.

"We know the workforce of pipeline operators and utilities is constantly asked to do more with less, so we challenged our product team to think big," says AI CEO Ed Kruft. "The CartoPac Cathodic Protection software allows our customers to be more efficient and effective with the improved workflows so necessary in today's workplace. We are excited about the future of our CartoPac Field Integration platform and the opportunities for introducing new features to further increase operational efficiency."

The CartoPac Cathodic Protection software bolsters External Corrosion Direct Assessment (ECDA) programs by letting users visualize their routes with maps, perform close interval potential surveys (CIPS) and periodic surveys, and quickly identify and troubleshoot problems using the waveform functionalities of the digital voltmeters. GPS capabilities allow users to sync with any interruption programs and collect highly accurate location data. While CartoPac Cathodic Protection is supported on previous versions of PCS software, the newly released PCS Axis 2.1 offers a more seamless survey transfer workflow, and with Android OS, data transfer is quick and easy.

Product Manager Alex Rodriguez and his team worked closely with end users while developing CartoPac Cathodic Protection.

"This platform is the culmination of two decades of real-world user feedback and AI expertise," says Rodriguez. "The Mesa 3 tablet is a game changer. It is rugged enough to survive the harsh environments our users are subject to. Users can also download other apps so they can be as productive in the field as they are in the office. The Allegro AX's integrated form factor is tried and tested but has updated electronics for a fast and secure user experience."
