Pipeline Current Mapper, Models PCM Plus or PCM+ by Radiodetection


Radiodetection’s PCM+ Pipeline Current Mapper System is made up of a hand-held receiver and a portable transmitter that is connected at the CPS station and applies a special signal to the pipeline. The signal can be detected by the receiver at distances up to 30 km (19 miles) to identify the position and depth of the pipe. Once it has been located, the technician can quickly identify coating defects and map the leakage currents both in magnitude and direction along the pipeline. Its feature set consists of a powerful combination of Automatic Signal Attenuation (ASA), Advanced Current Direction (ACD) and Adaptive Ground Compensation (AGC), increasing accuracy and the ability to easily map the pipeline even in areas where there is contact with other electrical interference, metallic structures, or congestion. data gathered by the PCM+ can be sent via Bluetooth® to either a PC or an optional PDA accessory equipment (with GPS), and then be displayed in a number of graphical formats for fast analysis.
