CPRectifier

A rectifier is the source of direct current in the cathodic protection system. Wire connects the pipe to the negative pole of the rectifier. The positive pole is connected to the ground bed that contains anodes. Current flows from the rectifier through the ground bed, through the soil to the pipe, and back to the rectifier. The ground bed deteriorates over time, but the pipe is protected.

You may omit specific feature classes from gas traces. To do this, assign the GASNONTRACABLE model name to the CPRectifier feature class. A rectifier bit depends on the existence of the class model name RECTIFIER. LOCATABLEOBJECT is used to enable the Object Query Locator tool.

CPRectifier acquires properties from the CathodicProtectionDevice abstract class.
