Cathodic Protection Sensor



Cathodic protection is one of the most effective methods for preventing corrosion on a metal surface. Therefore, it is commonly used to protect all submerged or buried metal structures against corrosion, such as ships, offshore floaters, pipelines, and tanks.
The CP-SAT sensor is designed to accurately and efficiently monitor cathodic protection voltages and currents. In the case of threshold crossing, it sends early warning messages over satellite or terrestrial networks.
CP-SAT is an ultra-low-green power device equipped with a photovoltaic panel and supercapacitors with an optional primary battery.
It has 3DC + 1AC analog inputs, galvanically insulated from each other and from the ground, bipolar, and with SW selectable. All sensor parameters can be remotely programmed. In additions, an internal storage memory logs the acquired data for later retrieval and in-deep analysis.

› Unattended and long-term monitoring of the health status of the cathodic protection.

› Cooperative terrestrial and satellite communication system enabling bi-directional and real-time transmission.

› In satellite communication mode, no gateway or other infrastructure is required.

› Solution based on LoRa® technologies and LoRaWAN®-compatible protocols.

› Easy integration with existing terrestrial network.

› Suitable for long-range coverage of areas normally not covered by GSM, LTE, NB-IoT, and 5G.

› Use of ultra-efficient integrated antenna with no pointing required.

› Wireless and energy-efficient solution with photovoltaic power supply and battery life extension.

› The system ensures a high level of cybersecurity within the entire signal chain due to the encryption of messages.

› Access to collected data via a dedicated web dashboard or locally via a wireless connection.

› Possibility to set system operating parameters remotely or locally, including full firmware upgrade.


› Real-time monitoring of cathodic protection status along the pipeline in a point-based manner.

› Accurate voltage and current monitoring.

› Measurement of pipeline potential to the zinc reference,

› Detection of anodic potential vs zinc reference.

› Measurement of anode current.

› Diagnosis and measurement of residual AC on the pipe’s potential.


› Sending early warnings over LoRaWAN®-compatible satellite or terrestrial networks for anomalies or exceeding safety thresholds.

› Bi-directional transmission. All our IoT devices integrate the technology to transmit and receive both in the S-band satellite network and terrestrial in the ISM, EU868, US915, and AU923 bands.


› Photovoltaic-powered and battery life extender for multi-year life.

› Waterproof device supplied in IP67 enclosures for outdoors installations.

› Easy installation. Sensor can be pole mounted and is equipped with multi-pole cables connected to the field inputs.


› Optional input modules for additional external digital or analog sensors such residual AC components of a selected DC input.

› On-board calculation and storage memory capabilities to log event and vibration waveforms for later retrieval and in-deep analysis.

CP-SAT sensors are designed for the following applications:

› Submerged or buried metal structures monitoring.

› Ships, offshore floaters, pipelines, and tanks cathodic protection.

› Oil&Gas, Water, Energy T&D infrastructure.
