Watchdog VIPrm specifically designed for basic rectifier monitoring applications.

Using field-proven Watchdog lightning surge-resistant circuitry, the Watchdog VIPrm is the best choice for any standard CP rectifier monitoring application.

 

 

 

 

The Watchdog VIPrm is specifically designed for most rectifier monitoring applications. Features in-clude pre-configured, dedicated analog measurement channels for volts, current, and pipe to soil. Unit is equipped with an AC Probe to detect and monitor the rectifier input power. An additional dry contact digital channel can be used for momentary alarm monitoring (door alarm for intrusion detection for ex-ample), or for status monitoring (valve position, etc.).

Units come factory configured as Ch 1 – volts, Ch 2 – amps, Ch 3– pipe to soil potential (required refer-ence cell not included). Dedicated channels and the colorcoded wire harness greatly simplify installa-tion at any rectifier location. Compact, NEMA 4x enclosure may be mounted external to the rectifier, or mounted inside the rectifier for additional security. An optional, lockable, external enclosure is available for use where device security is of great concern.
