The SESCO ADI-100 Satellite Synchronized
Solid State Current Interrupter

The Improved ADI-100 About the ADI-100:
1. Field Tested. This unit has been used in the field for over seven years. The testing has shown the reliability of the hardware and software. IT WORKS!

2. No more synchronization. Once the unit has been programmed for the schedule and times that are to be used, it will operate at the precise time for weeks. This unit has been operational for over 6 weeks at one site.

3. Will interrupt either AC or DC. This allows the user to interrupt individual pipelines, or the entire output of the rectifier on the DC, secondary or primary side of the rectifier unit.

4. The last schedule is maintained in the internal RAM. Should the power of the rectifier be interrupted, the interrupter unit will return to operation once the AC Power has been restored to the rectifier.

5. No power loss from the source. The source of interruption is totally solid state. The resistance of the connection will only be that of the connection cables which are No. 4 welding cables. This means that once the connection is made, the current drop from the unit will be insignificant.

6. Setting the schedule is very easy, and intuitive to learn.

7. This unit is built to last and provide trouble-free operation for many years.

8. We can make the ADI-100 compatible with other units -- call for information.
