When choosing a remote monitoring system for your cathodic protection rectifiers there are many things to consider such as: do you want the ability to poll and control your rectifiers’ output or are you looking for an inexpensive system to satisfy code requirements [1]? Do you have an existing radio network or will you have to rely on an outside service provider? These are only some of the many questions that require answers before a decision can be made as to which of the many remote monitoring systems available is best suited for your cathodic protection monitoring program. This paper examines many of the questions that need to be answered prior to choosing a remote monitoring system and also discusses the pros and cons of the many options available to the industry. This will allow the reader to make informed decisions when choosing a remote monitoring system and hopefully avoid the costly mistake of installing a system that does not meet your requirements now and in the future.
