Data from MERLIN Monitors is automatically stored and transmitted in a management report to the system HQ where it is displayed and archived in the MERLIN CPSM software (PC based database software) or accessed online via the internet based iCPSM.
A CPSM or iCPSM package is required for every MERLIN monitoring network. In CPSM-based systems, monitors can be configured to send their data to two CPSM HQs in different company locations; changes made at one HQ are automatically updated at the other HQ with a full audit trail of all changes made to the system.
iCPSM (Internet based Cathodic Protection System Manager) enables clients to view CP data from MERLIN monitors via a web browser. Clients selecting this method access their CP data via Abriox’s iCPSM website. Data is held in a client-specific, secure database, hosted by Abriox, where it can be viewed and downloaded.
