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 HQsin 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.

With a host of features built in from the start and new features being added. CPSM / iCPSM is setting the standards.

  • Remote access to rectifier and CP data
  • Standard software interface for all types of MERLIN monitor (3G/2G and satellite)
  • Graphical and numerical data display
  • Overview shows status of all monitors on pipeline
  • Remote synchronised interruption for all rectifiers on a pipeline - with a few clicks of the mouse
  • Notes facility for locations and individual reports
  • Installation wizards for easing rapid deployment of monitors
  • On-demand data from rectifiers
  • Configurable data export and interface options
  • Alarm folders for quick identification of CP incidents - with user alerts to specified email addresses or mobile phones
  • Access to rectifier and CP data anytime/anywhere (iCPSM)
  • Secure database running on dedicated servers (iCPSM)
  • 99.99% server uptime (iCPSM)
  • Scheduled interruption
  • Access control managed licences

Platform Choices

Abriox have also created CPSM Viewer. This allows third parties to view MERLIN data but without access to remote configuration of the monitors in the field.

Both CPSM and the CPSM Viewer are designed and distributed uniquely by Abriox. Software updates are made freely available during the warranty (or service contract) period.

The great advantage of iCPSM is that multiple users can access corporate rectifier and CP data via the internet with no requirement for special software or set-up.

Data is held in a client-specific secure database hosted by Abriox, where it can be viewed and exported at any time from an internet-enabled PC. This is essential where CP engineers are located in different offices – or even in different countries!
