The sensor utilises a proprietary flux-gate magnetometer design and high grade quartz-hinge accelerometers for excellent precision and stability. High reliability electronics packaging and printed circuit board mounting, provide an extremely robust instrumentation assembly with industry leading performance.
The unit communicates through a simple serial TTL/CMOS interface using a proprietary protocol, which can be easily configured to provide the appropriate data as required by the customer. A single polarity power supply, operating across a wide voltage range, further simplifies the integration of this module into the customer’s MWD/LWD system.
The Orientation Module is designed for extreme downhole oilfield environments, qualified for high temperature and drilling shock and vibration levels - designed for reliability under the most demanding of environments.
