All products supplied by ClampOn; Particle Monitor, PIG Detector, Vibration Monitor, Well Collision Detector, Corrosion-Erosion Monitor and Leak Monitor are based on the same, well proven technology platform. Both the topside and the subsea instruments incorporate Digital Signal Processing (DSP), complete digitalization eliminating analogue filters, circuits and amplifiers.
The intelligent sensor concept, of doing all signal processing within the sensor itself, has been developed since we founded the company. With the introduction of DSP technology, the sensors are fully digitized and more intelligent than ever. This means that one and the same sensor can be used for a number of different applications.
The digital signal processor within the sensor has access to the full ultrasonic spectrum and the type of result is decided by the software module it is running. The functionality of the sensor can be upgraded and/or extended by downloading new software.
There are two basic sensor models; one for topside applications and one for subsea applications. Depending on the application, additional hardware modules like active ultrasonic (for condition monitoring / erosion and corrosion monitoring), accelerometers (for vibration analysis), or temperature meters, etc. can be built in.
From the users point of view however, the sensors are normally used for one specific type of monitoring and we have thus chosen to simplify the product range marketed by separating the sensors by the assigned application.
