The Pipeline Sentinel is an automated pig tracking station that can be left at a remote pipeline location for up to four weeks without a human operator.It will reliably detect the passage of any pig equipped with a transmitter and then uplink the passage information to an overhead satellite and then reset itself within a few seconds to await another passage.
The satellite will send the passage information (passage time, asset #, GPS location) to any number of land-based locations, including email addresses and cell phones.
The entire water proof kit can be left unattended at location. Electronic security blocks unauthorized use and theft. Rechargeable battery and recharger allows continual refreshing after 4 week cycle. Operation temperature is 130 F to -40F. Weight is 25 lbs. (Weight adjustable for shorter site durations). Size is 17.5 X 11.5 X 5.5 inches.
