The UPRS MkII is a hand-held diver-deployed underwater UV/LUX/Mag meter for confirmation of underwater MPI parameters, fitted with OLED full-colour display, internal rechargeable battery and rugged waterproof housing pressure tested to 600ft water depth.
The UPRS / UFM is designed to enhance the integrity of subsea MPI and has been field-proven over many years’ service all over the world. The unit enables measurement of magnetic field strength, ambient visible light, and ultra-violet irradiance with a single subsea module.
The UPRS / UFM allows the user to replicate previous work face MPI conditions on subsequent inspections, thus reducing the probability of spurious or missed indications.
Updates to the UPRS
TVC has made an improvement on earlier versions of the UPRS / UFM and the unit has a single flying lead to a combined probe head. This contains the UV and visible light sensors, together with the magnetometer probe, dramatically reducing the number of both penetrators and trailing cables.
Power is from an internal Ni-MH battery, which will provide over 20 hours of continuous use. The charging circuit allows the system to be recharged with no additional connectors or penetrators, by using the control knob and grab ring as the charging connections.
