AERL CP30 30-Amp Impressed Current Cathodic Protection Controller
AERL COOLPRO Cathodic Protection controllers are suitable for use from either an AC mains powered transformer / rectifier DC supply, or directly from a DC (battery) source in applications where photovoltaics are used to supply electrical power to charge a lead-acid storage battery.
AERL’s COOLPRO CATHODIC CONVERTER™, the latest series in the AERL CATHODIC CONVERTER™ range, is more powerful and efficient than previous Cathodic Protection Controllers with peak power efficiencies now 98%!! AERL’s COOLPRO CATHODIC CONVERTER™ also now has a new revolutionary ultra-low heat, high efficiency thermal design, with passive cooling capacity, eliminating the need for cooling fans or bulky heatsinks and making it, therefore, now the most efficient, reliable, compact and lightweight Cathodic Protection Controller on the market!
Since 1985, AERL has been designing and manufacturing highly reliable and efficient specialised power electronics for use in Solar PV, Micro Hydro, Micro Wind and Cathodic Protection applications. AERL has supplied literally thousands of controllers to satisfied customers all around the world. AERL’s MPPT controllers have now totalled an astonishing 750 million field operating hours and supplied an incredible 12 Megawatts of power (installed capacity) to customers worldwide. AERL controllers have been protecting pipelines and metal structures in the Middle East, Europe, America and Australasia for over 20 years.
What is a Cathodic Protection Controller?
A Cathodic Protection Controller is a highly specialized electonic controller which is designed to protect oil, gas and water pipelines and other ferrous metal structures from rust and corrosion. It successfully reduces the corrosion rate of these metal structures by electronically shifting the corrosion potential of the electrode towards reduced oxidizing potential.
