In order to comply with the latest specifications and the new technical standards within the sector, Pietro Fiorentini is now working to develop latest-generation dataloggers for remote monitoring with communication modules that can support the new 4G/LTE technology and an on-board cyclic switch for EOFF measurements.
The Company started developing and creating cathodic protection monitoring systems in 2016 with the acquisition of the Tecnosystem Group, a renowned Italian company in data acquisition services for the sector. Pietro Fiorentini’s product portfolio therefore expanded to easily installable field acquisition units that automatically record and send the main electrical parameters to data collection centres without any kind of manual control.
Hardware and software for cathodic protection
In 2019, Pietro Fiorentini provided new cathodic protection monitoring software to its French customer GRTgaz: Service2Business. The platform fulfils all the characteristics of remote monitoring while also improving the centre and service procedures offered. Since 2020, S2B has also been available to customers in the Italian market and is able to interface with NEXT and Drone Kompact, Pietro Fiorentini’s devices for the monitoring and remote control of cathodic protection systems.
The cathodic protection test field in Rosate
In 2019, Pietro Fiorentini built a cathodic protection test field at its factory in Rosate (Milan), certified in accordance with UNI EN ISO 15257. The facility meets the training needs of internal and external staff and is used to develop applications and new products. It is also available to polytechnics, universities and research institutions that request to use it to carry out tests, studies and measurements of various kinds.
