CPDL-1 data logger technology overview

PA-EL’s CPDL-1 data logger provides simple and reliable way to store measured data on the state of cathodic protection of metal structures. In use, the CPDL-1 data logger behaves like a “black box” on cathodically protected structures and stores cathodic protection data within its memory until it is recalibrated.

Storage of cathodic protection measurement data on the CPDL-1 is performed in the defined time intervals during which the measurement data from the reference electrode is written to the data logger’s memory. The frequency of data logging on the CPDL-1 can be set in the range of 5 seconds up to a week per record, while the built-in non-rechargeable battery inside the data logger allows device autonomy of at least one year at a recording rate of 1 log/hour.

The collected data from CPDL-1 can be transferred to the computer using the software tool CPDL-1 user, for which it is necessary to connect the data logger to the computer with a USB cable type “USB-A <-> USB mini”. After downloading, data / measurements taken from the data logger are stored in .csv format and after transferring to a computer, it can easily be opened via standard spreadsheet applications such as MS Excel, Libre / Open Office Calc and similar programs, where the data can additionally be processed as required.

LNG Croatia

PA-EL is participating in the construction of the LNG terminal on the island of Krk, which is known as the most important energy project that was realized in Croatia in last twenty years. Start of operational activities on LNG terminal are planned for the beginning of January 2021, which will bring a numerous and significant new opportunities for development of Croatian gas market and economy as well. During the construction of the LNG terminal, PA-EL was given the task of creating a complete impressed current cathodic protection system, which is at the moment approaching the final stage. System that has been pre-commissioned successfully yesterday is composed of:

  • cathodic protection for immersed piles  
  • cathodic protection for transport gas main
  • internal cathodic protection for fire water tank
  • cathodic protection for fire water tank bottom

We in PA-EL are exceptionally proud to be a part of this significant project for Croatia.
