22 AUGUST 2018 W W W.MATERIALSPERFORMANCE.COM Portable Current Interrupter for Cathodic Protection Surveyors Compliance solutions company American Innovations (Austin, Texas, USA) released the MicroMax GPS360, a portable current interrupter designed for cathodic protec- tion (CP) surveyors who need to interrupt facilities in remote locations. Instead of relying on a large external battery to power the interrupter in these areas, CP surveyors can use the GPS360. Weighing just over 3 lb (1.4 kg), it can interrupt up to 100 A for 60 or more hours without a power source. In addition to a built-in bat- tery, the product includes other hallmarks of the MicroMax product line, such as an integrated relay, rugged design, and a form-factor small enough to fit inside most rectifier cabinets. By eliminating the need to select the right relay, get the wir- ing polarity correct, find a way to keep the interrupter secure, and bring an external power source, the GPS360 will signifi- cantly improve the efficiency of CP surveys.

The product's drain hose diverts the leak to a closed container, thereby reduc- ing the potential danger of accidents or inju- ries caused by spills around equipment and walkways. It also eliminates the mess and any ground contamination. The product reduces work stoppages and overtime, thus enabling any leaks to be fixed on a planned maintenance schedule. An optional remote moni- toring system from Andax can be used in tandem with the Xtreme Shell system to eliminate the need to visually monitor remote locations. The system allows users to monitor f luid levels from a smartphone or laptop computer at all times, with instant alerts and notifications available via text or email.
