The Buckleys Surface Display Unit (SDU) has been designed to provide a remote method of verifying the corrosion voltage readings of the Buckleys Bathycorrometer®. The SDU would typically be placed on board a ship or on a platform, and is connected to the Bathycorrometer® being used underwater by a diver via a robust, two core water-resistant cable of suitable length (supplied separately).
The measured structure to seawater potential is then transmitted from the Bathycorrometer® to the SDU by a 4-20mA signal. The SDU then converts this signal to a direct voltage read-out, providing the corrosion engineer with a quick and easy verification.
It is recommended that the SDU is purchased with the Bathycorrometer® it is going to be used with, as this allows both units to be checked together.
The standard kit includes a mains supply lead, calibration leads from the Bathycorrometer® to the SDU and a comprehensive instruction manual.
Note: The SDU is not suitable for use with old Roxby Bathycorrometers®, units fitted with Buckleys Retrofit kits or early Buckleys units. Contact Buckleys for advice.
