Long Distance Gas and Liquid Pipelines are a Major Infrastructure Cost.
Historically this has been a time consuming process. The Cathodic Protection system needs to be switched off and on during measurement. Most pipelines extend over extremely long distances and it becomes impractical to manually switch the Transformer Rectifier units whilst taking the measurements.
This problem is solved by using Omnitronics’ GPS Synchronisation Controller.
The GPS Synchronisation Controller has a programmable internal calendar. The internal calendar provides a means of switching the Cathodic Protection Systems on and off at pre-prescribed dates and times, within an accuracy of ±3 milliseconds.
