Ease of Use
- Obtaining single shot fluid level data is simply a matter of pressing one key on the digital recorder keypad. Fluid level depth determination can be done two ways:
- Acoustic Velocity Calculations utilizing an average joint length and tubing depth entered by user.
- User is able to select the collar spacing of the chart (built in 11 point dividers);especially useful when collars may be masked or the collar reposnse is poor (ie. surface noise or wax).
The preprogrammed function keys make manipulation of data simple. The provided download software has built-in step-by-step instructions to ensure that all collected data is easily downloaded to the user’s computer.
Each fluid level can be viewed or printed as an individual shot trace, fluid level report, or exported to a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. Software can be used on most Window versions.
