REO UK introduces REOTRON SMP-CP power supplies

September 22, 2015 - REO UK announces REOTRON SMP-CP transformer-rectifier power supplies designed for impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP) applications. Using primary switch mode technology, the SMP-CP provides an economical and reliable solution to remote cathodic monitoring and control.

Traditionally, the maintenance of ICCP systems relies on engineers frequently performing extensive field surveys on systems to assure everything is working correctly. This factor alone can generate high costs for businesses, excluding any servicing that may be necessary.

SMP-CP allows accurate measurement of ICCP applications and is controllable from true zero to maximum voltage or current. Internal regulation electronics ensure a steady output and units are configured to return to their programmed operation after any power interruption.

Compatibility with Fieldbus interfaces allows SMP-CP to integrate easily with SCADA-based systems, while also being suitable for retro-fitting in older systems to provide remote monitoring to existing installations.

ICCP is widely used in many industries to protect iron and steel structures from corrosion. An electrical current is produced from a system and is passed through to the metal to suppress electrochemical activity, slowing the rate of corrosion and extending the lifespan of structures.
