SURREY, UK – Pulse Structural Monitoring, an Acteon company, has launched a third generation INTEGRIpod platform as a new addition to its INTEGRI range of structural monitoring sensor systems.
Typical applications for the INTEGRIpod range include linear displacement and static and dynamic inclination of subsea structures such as BOPs, wellheads, conductor systems, mooring lines, and jumpers. With on-board processing capabilities, measured data is processed in real-time and transmitted wirelessly or hardwired enabling instantaneous operational decision-making.
The new platform, INTEGRIpod NXT, also allows for deployments in excess of one year between battery change-outs due to new features such as “Smart Logging,” which enables the device to deploy and only record phenomena over client-defined thresholds. This reduces campaign costs and the need for offshore interventions.
Sandip Ukani, technical director, Pulse, said, “At the core of the new platform is a 32-bit ARM processor, which offers low power consumption with significant on-board processing capability; delivering best-in-class battery life. The on-board MEMS gyroscopic sensors deliver unrivalled precision and accuracy.
“The platform allows communication over various connectivity options, including hardwired and acoustic, and can communicate over various industry standard open communication standards, such as RS232/485.”
The company says the third generation INTEGRIpod platform underwent extensive sea trials in the harsh weather of the North Sea, and in deepwater offshore Brazil.
