Qube: The World’s Most Advanced AGM

Qube is the industry’s most advanced AGM. It can confidently and accurately detect the passages of pipeline pigs equipped with MFL magnetizers, EM transmitters, or simply acoustically with its built-in geophone. But Qube is much more than just an AGM. Its advanced features, comprehensive communication options, and real-time tracking capabilities through GlobalTrack make it an invaluable tool for precisely tracking tools and maintaining full visibility of run progress.

Stay Connected, Stay Productive

In business today we demand fast and reliable communication with no excuses. That’s why every single Qube is equipped with an international LTE cell modem, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. For projects beyond cellular coverage, our cost-effective Iridium satellite expansion module offers satellite communication as a dependable alternative, ensuring you have a comprehensive solution regardless of where your work takes you.

Automatic Data Transfers

The Qube instantly transmits tool passage data, including magnetic imagery, geophone audio, GPS time, date, and position, to CDI’s GlobalTrack cloud service through its fully encrypted cell modem, Wi-Fi, or satellite modules. This process eliminates the need for an end-of-run download phase, ensuring that the run report is immediately available as soon as the tool is trapped. Once the last tool passage has been recorded, the devices can be switched off and stored away—there’s nothing more to do.

No SIM Cards to Manage

Every Qube arrives pre-installed with an international SIM card with unlimited data, ensuring uninterrupted connectivity in over 180 countries across 540 cellular service providers. There’s no need for time-consuming SIM swaps or managing multiple carrier subscriptions. The Qube’s SIM card supports over-the-air updates to ensure compatibility with new carriers and countries as they are added, maintaining seamless global access without any manual intervention.

Flexibility and Expandability

The Qube is designed with four expansion slots, offering exceptional versatility for a broad range of add-ons including remote antennas, I/O expansions, solar chargers, SCADA outputs, and more. This flexibility and modularity ensure that your investment is protected, providing a scalable upgrade path for future enhancements. Ideal for CDI or customer-driven accessory modules, the Qube adapts to meet evolving needs and technological advancements, securing its utility for years to come.

Real-Time Tracking and Data Availability

CDI’s Qube and GlobalTrack cloud service work together to provide real-time tracking and instantaneous data availability for any number of stakeholders on desktop and mobile. All stakeholders can access the tool’s location, view real-time sensor data, and even listen to Qube’s live geophone audio over the internet right in their browsers, from anywhere in the world.
