PermaNET TM gps

PermaNET Trunk Main (TM) GPS is an acoustic monitoring system for trunk mains, plastic and sensitive pipelines that uses GPS Time Synchronisation to product highly accurate correlations over long distances, on large diameter pipes and in difficult conditions.

Combining high performance Hydrophone 2 leak detection capability with flow and pressure transient information not only delivers highly accurate leak noise correlations but will potentially identify from where leaks are originating.  The system is available with flow and pressure channels with fast logging capability.



Combining the proven sensitivity of our new Hydrophone 2 with our advanced-telemetry data logger and GPS Time Sync, PermaNET TM GPS delivers leak noise detection and correlation over greater distance on plastic and large diameter pipes.

A flexible solution, PermaNET TM GPS can be supplied with pressure and flow inputs to deliver multi-parameter monitoring and detect problems as they arise, with the pressure channel supporting a fast-logging mode to detect transients.

The system is battery-powered by the logger, with additional battery packs supporting accelerated dial-in and fast logging. No expensive mains or solar power infrastructure is required, meaning the PermaNET TM GPS has the flexibility for fixed or portable, short or long-term deployments.
