MRT-700

Description

The MRT-700 device is an underground cable and pipe locator, which makes it possible to trace distribution networks quickly, easily and accurately.

  • Energised Cables
  • De-energised Cables
  • Low Voltage, Medium Voltage and High Voltage Lines
  • Metallic and non-metallic pipelines

Specially designed for utilities to trace cables in their electric distribution networks. Also, suitable for locating and tracing underground pipe networks.

Other applications

 

Underground piping networks maintenance

 

The MRT-700 device with its different accessories, allows to locate and to trace pipes, in an agile and effective way. It is suitable for both METALLIC and NON-METALLIC pipes, allowing maintenance teams to know exactly where the pipe they need to work on runs, before digging. Avoiding perforate the routes of other services

Metal Piping

  • Direct connection to any accessible point of the pipe
  • No need for guides or probes
  • CPS mode with polarity of the induced signal allows to see the direction of the current and to discriminate returns.

 

Non-metallic pipe

  • Specific guide and probe accessory pack for non-metallic piping

 

Electric distribution network digitisation (*)

 

Once the network assets have been located, the next step in the digitisation of electrical networks is to know where the connection lines run between the different assets.

Merytronic has developed a complete solution, consisting of the MRT-700 device together with the GridGIS Map Creator app. This solution makes it possible to locate and trace the network while recording the data in the digitisation app. Thanks to the app, existing data can be downloaded from the company’s GIS system on a map of the terrain, edited and expanded during field work and uploaded to the system once the work has been completed. This process is carried out in a simple way, thus avoiding transcription errors.

 

Piping networks digitisation

 

The MRT-700 device and its digitalisation app GridGIS Map Creator, help to carry out the digitalisation of distribution networks for Oil&Gas companies in an agile and efficient way.  It is suitable for metallic and non-metallic pipes.

Thanks to the app, existing data can be downloaded from the company’s GIS system on a map of the terrain, edited and expanded during field work and uploaded to the system once the work has been completed. This process is carried out in a simple way, thus avoiding transcription errors.

 

(*) For digitising applications, the device must be ordered with the following extras:

– MRT-700 with integrated GPS (accuracy <1m) and internal datalogger (for data transfer via Bluetooth).

– Digitising App: GridGIS Map Creator. (Developed by Ariadna, our technology partner)
