The Watchdog Tracker remote monitoring system features state of the art measurement precision, and remote datalogging capability, making it the ideal choice for every test point and bond monitoring application. The Tracker can be used with single, double, or triple coupon test stations. The Tracker measures and records all standard test point values plus: AC potential, AC current density, and AC drain current.
All measurements are stored to the internal memory and can be remotely downloaded from the unit using any webenabled device. All alarms, schedules, and scan rates are programmable over the web. The Tracker is built to withstand extreme conditions and perform reliably in the harshest environments. Like all of the Watchdog CP monitoring systems, the Tracker is designed and manufactured in the USA at our state of the art manufacturing facility in Olathe, Kansas
The Watchdog Tracker is ideal for all test point and critical bond monitoring applications, but was designed particularly to meet the challenges of induced AC interference on buried pipelines. Elecsys Corporation has led the way in providing the CP professional with monitoring and remote data-logging devices optimized for measuring critical AC values on the pipeline. The Tracker continues to lead the pack by incorporating higher resolution current density and current drain measurement accuracy, support for dedicated AC coupons, and the ability to measure current density directly at the coupon or using a calculated value from the AC voltage and soil resistivity value. The Tracker provides “around the clock” assurance that your AC mitigation is operating properly and that induced AC on the pipeline is reduced to acceptable levels. The remote data-logging gives you access to all of the measurements from any web enabled device, from anywhere in the world!
