The C-Kore Topside Wireless unit provides a live dashboard of C-Kore test results, presenting the user with a consolidated view of the health of equipment before it is deployed subsea. It is typically used in conjunction with C-Kore Cable Monitor units fitted to an umbilical termination to monitor and log umbilical electrical test results until the second end is deployed subsea.
Physically, the Topside Wireless unit is a small self-contained weatherproof enclosure that is temporarily fastened next to the C-Kore units it will be monitoring. It is powered by a replaceable rechargeable battery and connects wirelessly to both the C-Kore units and computers, so does not require any physical connections to other equipment. Once in place, the Topside Wireless unit will collect test results from adjacent C-Kore Units and log these to an interactive dashboard. The dashboard can be accessed over Wi-Fi and can also be coupled into existing network infrastructure if required.
The Topside Wireless unit provides an overview of test results as a live interactive dashboard. It runs as a local webserver, so no software is required on connected computers. The dashboard updates to show the latest readings from the connected units as well as graphing the trends in data over time. Further, any individual test result can be explored remotely, removing the need to connect to units via USB.
