The MicroPulse 3 is housed in a uniquely compact unibody chassis machined from a single 19” piece of aluminum. The compact unibody construction prevents bends and twists that can affect directional performance when loading the sensor into a pressure housing while allowing for more innovative placement of the tool. A smaller size means the tool can be installed in more places.
The MicroPulse 3 has a built-in MWD Telemetry Controller (M-Ary) capable of Pulse Widths from traditional 1.0s or 0.8s pulse Widths down to 0.3s to even 0.05s Pulse Widths to support new high speed fast pulsers. The MWD Telemetry is optional and can be disabled for systems with their own telemetry logic.
MWD sensors must enable wells to drill faster than ever before while being more efficient. We need to know where we are, not just when we make a connection, but when we are drilling. Our Inertial Drilling Measurement Unit processes all sensor inputs through an advanced field-proven Kalman Filter to produce advanced “while drilling” measurements such as Continuous Inclination and Continuous Azimuth as well Stick Slip and RPM.
