- Model CD52 Bandit - Non-Intrusive Pig Signaler



Non-Intrusive Pig Signaler with UL/CSA Class 1 Division 1 Hazardous Location Certification. With thousands of systems sold around the world over the past 15 years, the CD52 pig signaler has developed a strong reputation in the industry for its reliability and durability in even the harshest environments. The CD52 Bandit is a non-intrusive pig signaler which uses either permanent magnets or active transmitters mounted onto the pig to detect passage from 0.022 to 45.73 mph (0.01m/s to 20 m/s). A relay closure on passage allows the Bandit to be interfaced to a wide variety of systems including SCADA, PLC’s, lights, horns, etc.

  • Passage Electrical Indicator: Isolated Dry Contract Closure
  • Detection Speed: 0.01 meter/sec to 20 meter/sec
  • Battery Life: One full year minimum on tow standard 1.5VDC
  • D-Cell alkaline batteries
  • External Power: 24VDC (21.6 to 26.4 VDC Allowable Range
  • Enclosure: Aluminum
  • Window: Tempered Glass

  • The CD52 Bandit provides quick and easy non-intrusive pig passage detection of any pig and transmitter moving between 0.1 and 20 meters per second. Non-intrusive means less maintenance and corrosion, and no possibilities of pipeline leaks.
  • Quick and Easy Installation: No hot-tapping required. The CD52 Bandit can be installed in minutes by any field technician.
  • Sensing means of the CD52 Bandit consist of a set of patented, non-intrusive proprietary noise-canceling antennas invented by CDI specifically for pig passage detection. This antenna system gives the Bandit its ability to reject nearby magnetic noise and halt costly false-positive triggering. A small, safe, permanent magnet or active transmitter installed on a pig is all it takes to put the Bandit to work!
  • Remote Signaling of a passage is easy with built-in flashing LCD visal display and dry-contact relays. These normally-open or normally-closed relays may be used in conjuction with existing SCADA systems to integrate the CD52 Bandit into a pipeline control and signalling network. An optional array of four high-luminosity LEDs can be seen over distances as great as 100 meters (328 feet).

  • Sunshade helps protect the Bandit from intense sunlight by reducing overall temperature inside, thus prolonging the life of the electriconic components. 316 stainless steel construction guarantees long life in a harsh pipeline environment.
  • Heater system recommended for operation below -22°F (-30°C).
  • LineStat satellite radio for transmitting passage time, date, and GPS location via email or SMS message.
  • Remote Indicator System provides passage indication up to 328 ft (100 meters).
