The CD52-Bandit Non-Intrusive Pipeline Pig Passage Signaller
Using either permanent magnets or active transmitters, the CD52 Bandit is designed to detect pig passages from 0.022 to 45.73 mph (0.036 to 72 k/h or 0.01m/s to 20 m/s). This system has developed a strong reputation in the industry for its reliability and durability in even the harshest environments.
A relay closure on passage allows the Bandit to be interfaced to a wide variety of systems including SCADA, PLC's, lights, horns, etc., and since every unit is explosion-proof it can be used anywhere within a pipeline system regardless of environment.
Main features of the CD52 Bandit:
Completely non-intrusive to the pipeline
Designed for direct burial permanent installation
with many standard stalk heights and types
Designed for temporary use onshore & offshore with carring case
Every unit is housed in a certified explosion-proof enclosure
Detection of both transmitter and permanent magnet equipped pipeline pigs
Automatic retention of the 10 most recent pig passage times and dates
Explosion proof case is standard equipment
Powered for one full year with two D-Cell alkaline batteries or permanently powered with 24VDC
Easily bands to pipelines from 2" to 60"
Works to wall thicknesses of 1.5 inches
The CD52-Bandit allows simple and reliable non-intrusive detection of pig passages anywhere within your pipeline system. Simply strap the CD52 onto a pipeline and it immediately begins scanning for both transmitter and permanent magnet equipped pig passages.
When pig passages occur, their times and dates are displayed to the operator, along with a flashing "Recent Passage" message. If multiple pig passages have occurred, one can simply scroll back through the Bandit's passage memory and retrieve the time and date of any one of the last 10 passages.
When pig passages occur, in addition to visual indications the CD52 Bandit initiates a relay contact closure (which may be wired normally open or normally closed) for 15 seconds by default. This relay can support an electrical connection of 120VAC to 1A or 30VDC to 3A.
The Bandit's standard enclosure is a fully certified aluminium explosion-proof housing with a tempered glass window. This allows installations of the Bandit anywhere within a pipeline network without paying extra for explosion hazard locations.
CDI manufactures a family of permanent magnets that are ideal for use with the CD52 Bandit. They are durable, epoxy encapsulated cylinders with outer jackets and mounting studs which can be mounted to, or placed into virtually any type of pipeline pig to allow it to be tracked through a pipeline network. Since they do not required batteries or have any active components, the usable life of these magnets is outstanding.
Although several options are available for the CD52 Bandit that allow customization to a customer's needs, there are often special uses that require something new. If you have a special requirement for this equipment, just give CDI a call; special orders are commonplace for this type of equipment.
