The C-Kore Cable Monitor is a compact automated tool for testing subsea electrical assets. It can be configured in advance by C-Kore System Ltd or set up in the field easily by the end-user. The Cable Monitor is a very versatile product but remains easy to use.
It can be used for both fault-finding and construction campaigns. Compared to downlines or platform-led testing for fault-finding, it is fast and simple to deploy to get accurate data on the health of subsea assets. By measuring directly subsea substantial vessel time and cost savings are made, allowing more faults to be found and fixed with shorter campaigns.
When installing new equipment the Cable Monitor should be fitted as early as possible, ideally just after factory FAT of umbilicals or equipment. It then remains in place during load-out, transit, lay and wet-storage, taking scheduled automated measurements. This eliminates the delays and costs associated with manual measurement. As the unit is deployed along with the equipment, the second end of umbilicals are not deployed blind and asset health can be confirmed all the way to point of hook-up.
The unit is powered by a high-capacity rechargeable battery for stand-alone operation. Simple user configuration is possible with a plug-and-play USB connection to choose what the unit will test and when. Every result is data-logged, with internal storage allowing years of data to be gathered.
