Allegro QX Field Data PC by American Innovations

When facing a long day of close interval, DCVG or periodic surveys, the Allegro QX field computer is the one instrument you want to have.

Description

This ruggedized PC is a complete solution for the pipeline survey technician for applications that span production, midstream, transmission, and distribution. The integrated digital volt meter and GPS with the bundled suite of applications fully support periodic surveys including: facilities, leak, atmospheric, and valve. Indirect surveys include: close interval, DCVG, ACVG, ACCA, and Soil Resistivity. All surveys can be GPS time sync’d to your current interruption schedule. The RFID pen accessory can uniquely identify facility locations from tags as well as log visits to the tags for positive audit support.

Features

  • A color VGA display with a resolution that’s four times better than previous models and is easy to read, even in direct sunlight.

  • A QWERTY keyboard, full number pad and hourglass shape that reduces slippage.

  • A WAAS-enabled internal GPS that provides coordinates quickly and accurately.

  • A quick-charging lithium-ion battery that will last for up to fourteen hours of nonstop surveying.

  • An integrated DVM that delivers accuracy of 0.25 percent when reading DC voltage, even in the presence of up to 100 volts of AC interference.

  • The option to couple the field computer with RFID technology to make data 100 percent verifiable.
