RM4016 Rectifier Monitor, Solar (SAT)

×

Bullhorn RM4016

The RM4016 remotely collects cathodic protection (CP) measurements used to demonstrate corrosion mitigation effectiveness. It monitors pipelines, well casings, tanks and other assets by reading rectifier AC and DC volts and amps, pipe-to-soil potential, shunts, test points, and critical bonds. The unit can survive the harshest of conditions, with built in surge protection and optional high energy surge arrester.  Solar panel and battery provide reliable power in areas where the main power source may be unreliable or unavailable.

Remote monitoring for:

  • Rectifier AC and DC volts and amps
  • Pipe-to-soil potential
  • Shunts
  • Critical Bonds
  • Test Points

Overview

The RM4016 remotely collects cathodic protection (CP) measurements used to demonstrate corrosion mitigation effectiveness. It monitors pipelines, well casings, tanks and other assets by reading rectifier AC and DC volts and amps, pipe-to-soil potential, shunts, test points, and critical bonds. The Orbcomm IsatData Pro satellite network is used for one-way, global, reliable, low-latency communications. The solar-paneled RM4016 reduces the costs and risks of connecting to 120 V/240 V AC “mains,” as well as providing a more reliable power source in areas where the main power source may be unreliable. Measurements are automatically uploaded to Bullhorn Web, a web-based asset manager that works with AI’s Pipeline Compliance System to form a full end-to-end regulatory compliance solution from measurement to reporting.


  • Rugged – The unit can survive the harshest of conditions, with built in surge protection and optional high energy surge arrester.
  • Reliable – Solar panel and battery provide reliable power in areas where the main power source may be unreliable or unavailable.
  • Integrated Compliance Solution – Complete end-to-end system to prove regulatory compliance, with filtered measurements easily imported into PCS where they can be made into compliance reports.
