Remote Corrosion Monitoring
Telemetry System

View PDF version

Metal Samples’ remote telemetry system obtains real-time corrosion monitoring data via the Internet from anywhere in the world. The system features communications via satellite to a secure Web Monitor data server. With this powerful web-based back end, you can bring the data to your desk no matter where the site is located.

System Benefits Include:
• Eliminating costly travel to remote sites
• Gathering important corrosion data at a low cost

The built-in solar panel powers the Base Station, allowing for use where no local power is available. Using its internal battery and charge control circuit, the unit functions in the ‘Monitor & Sleep’ mode and can operate unattended for many years.

This 4-input system allows data from up to four corrosion monitoring sites to be transmitted. The system will transmit a daily reading of each monitoring point. The web server will maintain history for each site, and allows for review of the data and calculation of corrosion rates from various, user-selectable time periods.
