The GreenAmp Industrial Pipeline Remote Monitoring unit is designed to monitor pipe to soil potential data. The unit records the pipe potential every hour and transmits the 24 readings once per day via the LTE M (Cat M1) or Narrow Band Internet of Things (NB IoT) cellular networks onto our secure server. The units will also communicate over Wi-Fi or via Sigfox network if available.
The GreenAmp units features our unique Daisy Chain Data (DCD) capability for areas where cellular coverage is lacking. Each unit will wirelessly communicate it's readings to the next unit within a range of 5 kilometres. DCD can be shared for up to 10 units along the pipeline and all the data is uploaded via Cat M1, NB IoT, Wi Fi or Sigfox by the unit that has coverage . Data is also stored internally on a removable micro SD card so a physical back up is available for over 20 years of readings.
For standard operation the non-rechargeable battery life is 5-years, there is an optional rechargeable battery that couples with a small solar panel to enhance battery life for higher duty cycles and ongoing DCD operation.
The GreenAmp portal provides a platform to view relevant pipeline data in graphical form with an interactive map overlay, lists units and their status with the ability to interrogate individual unit data, set alarm parameters and nominate email addresses to receive alarms.
The system is available as an outright capital purchase or we also have 5-year lease plans which result in ownership of the system at the end.
There is a nominal annual cellular network transmission data and portal subscription fee, typically of $150 Aud per annum.
Our in-house engineers are able to generate annual, quarterly or monthly survey reports as per legislation from this data. This fulfills pipeline licensing obligations, greatly reducing travel expenses, personnel OH&S risk, stakeholder aggravation and interruptions from weather events.
