The Swarm datalogger/transmitter unit also comes in two versions, one with ISA 100 + Bluetooth and one with only Bluetooth.
Wireless communication through ISA 100 will give easy access to the data from the system. A prerequisite for installing the wireless PipeMonit® Swarm system is that the place of installation has ISA 100 infrastructure with access points.
Data is transferred from the PipeMonit® Swarm wireless system directly into the client CCS/DCS or it can be transferred to the cloud. If a Bluetooth solution is chosen the data can be transferred to a PipeMonit® PDL (Portable Data Logger) and gathered in the CCS/DCS from a docking station.
The PipeMonit® Swarm SDL(Safe Data Logger) operates and stores data locally, in addition to providing the data via Modbus interface or 4-20 mA.
The PipeMonit® FDL Ex operates and stores data locally. It can also provide online real-time wall thickness monitoring when connected to a server, it be via Modbus, 4-20mA, GSM or Ethernet.
Alternatively, the stored data on the FDL Ex can be collected using a PipeMonit® PDL – Portable Data Logger. The PDL communicates with the FDL Ex via Bluetooth and it provides the operator with graphical presentations of wall thickness data and corrosion rates.
PipeMonit® Swarm operates with cable lengths up to 500 meters without loss in performance and wall thickness resolution.
