MS1500E Handheld ER Corrosion Data Logger

The MS1500E is a hand-held, battery-powered, corrosion meter capable of measuring and storing data from all types of electrical resistance (ER) corrosion probes. The instrument is light weight, microprocessor-based, and features a simple, menu-driven interface using a 12-key keypad and a 4-line LCD display.


Corrosion rate measurements are made using the electrical resistance method. Essentially, the instrument measures the resistance of the probe element which changes over time, as metal loss occurs. The rate of change is directly proportional to corrosion rate. This method finds a wide variety of applications since it can be used in conductive and nonconductive environments such as petroleum, chemical, water, soil, or even atmosphere.


After taking a reading, the instrument displays metal loss in mils and corrosion rate in mils per year (mpy). The reading can then be stored to memory or discarded. All stored readings are automatically time and date stamped, and are protected by a lithium back-up battery. The instrument can store a maximum of 3,100 readings on up to 150 different probes.

Stored data can be uploaded to any IBM compatible PC as a comma-delimited ASCII text file. Because the data is in ASCII text format, it can be imported into any standard data analysis program such as Microsoft Excel, Lotus 123, or Corel Quattro Pro. Data can also be reviewed on the instrument’s LCD display for quick reference.

 

The MS1500E may also be used as a data transfer unit (DTU) for the MS3500E Remote Data Logger. Data may be transferred from multiple MS3500E field-based units to the MS1500E, then later transferred to a PC for analysis.
