RM4210 RMU and Triton Test Station (SAT)

×

The Bullhorn RM4210 AC/DC Coupon remote monitoring unit (RMU) monitors oil and gas assets in cathodic protection (CP) applications. Combining the RM4210 with the award-winning TRITON Coupon Test Station ensures unparalleled durability, accuracy, and ease of installation. With the combination, you can diagnose AC current issues, monitor AC current, and optimize AC mitigation systems. These devices take accurate AC and DC measurements on three coupons, along with pipe-to-soil measurements using the TRITON’s built-in reference electrode. The RM4210 uploads the measurements via satellite to Bullhorn Web, a web-based asset manager, making it easy for you to view your measurements and determine the best ways to mitigate the risks associated with induced AC corrosion.

Together, the RM4210 and the Triton coupon test station are a turnkey solution for monitoring:

  • AC coupons
  • AC and DC current density
  • AC and DC pipe-to-soil
  • Native pipe-to-soil
  • PCR AC Current

Mounted on a test station, the RM4210 measures induced AC voltage, AC current, and associated current density. It also measures DC voltage, DC current, instant-off and current flowing through a decoupling device. These measurements are automatically uploaded to Bullhorn Web via satellite communication. Once uploaded, you can easily monitor them and use them to design andoptimize your AC mitigation systems.


Key Benefits:

  • Form factor – The RM4210 is a fully integrated unit that is mounted on top of the TRITON. All components, including the antenna, are internal so it is easier to transport and install as well as it’s less likely to incur damage that will require a future repair visit.
  • Ease of installation – The TRITON coupon test station includes AC and DC coupons and a reference cell in an integrated package that’s simple to install, regardless of where the installation site is located. The RM4210 is also easy to set up – simply connect the pre wired harness to the RMU, affix it to the top of the test station and establish communications using Bullhorn® Tools Mobile. Once the TRITON is in place, the RMU installation take just a few minutes, and you can use Bullhorn Web to apply detailed configurations from the comfort of your office.
  • Accuracy – The RM4210 measure AC and DC voltage with one percent of reading accuracy all the way through the range with auto calibration and autozero for every measurement. For example, a 1 mV measurement will be accurate within ±10 microvolts. The TRITON uses a 1 cm2 AC coupon to represent a relatively small coating holiday. It’s important to use a coupon that approximates the size of the holiday so that small measurement errors are not magnified when the current density is calculated.
  • Detailed Reporting – Quickly identify problem areas and ensure mitigation effectiveness using flexible reports and graphs.
