Pig Signallers

4003D MAGSIG®

The online 4003D is a UL/CSA Class 1 Division 1 certified, non-intrusive pig signaller, which quickly and accurately detects, signals, and logs the passage of magnetic pigs at critical points along a pipeline both on land and offshore.

Product Options

See technical information below

  • Quick and easy installation using ratchet straps or steel banding
  • Minimal set up required, ensuring time is not lost setting up multiple parameters
  • Versatile – can be installed on any pipeline up to 60″ diameter with wall thickness up to 50mm, carrying any medium and with pigs running at varying speeds
  • No location restrictions – can be located on major barrel and the magnetic sensor can be supplied on a cable up to 10m long for use with buried pipelines or where access is limited.
  • Unit can be installed close to pig receiver door, allowing for confirmation that pig has passed isolation valved and easy pig recovery
  • Complete skid mounted systems for remote site locations are available inclusive of Solar Power recharging systems and Satellite communication.

Internal LED lamps and the internal electronic display signal pig passage locally. For remote signalling, DPDT dry relay, current loop (HART protocol compatible), low power wireless, MODBUS 485 and satellite communication options are available for one or two way communication enabling remote programming and data download. The unit logs the time and date of up to 99 events in local non-volatile memory. The user can turn the unit ON and OFF as well as modify several settings locally by using a single control button and intuitive menu system.

Internal calibration settings may vary depending on the background magnetic noise, pig speed, pipeline diameter, wall thickness and the quality of magnets fitted so let us know about your installation specifics. It is recommended that pigs should utilize rare earth magnets NdFeB (neodymium iron boron) to maximize magnetic signal.
