Second-hand goods for sale - Excellent working condition.

Easy to use

Gyro Shot® tools are very simple to operate. No special training is required.

Memory based

The Gyro Shot® is a memory-based tool. This means that unlike some other gyro systems, there is no need to connect the instrument to the surface with a
wire. Nevertheless, should you require data in real-time, it is possible to use the Gyro Shot® with a wireline modem.

Operates like a multishot

The Gyro Shot® operates much like a multishot. The tool is run through the hole and is halted at intervals to take static shots.

Instant results

Gyro Shot® tools are completely digital, meaning that survey results are available immediately upon recovery. Digital data also mean no more data entry errors. Menu-driven software provided with Gyro Shot® tools produces data files suitable for loading into spreadsheets and popular data-visualization software.

Any direction

Gyro Shot® tools can operate in any orientation. Horizontal or vertical holes present no difficulties.

Trouble free

Our design philosophy ensures trouble-free operation. Unlike our competitors, batteries are fi eld-replaceable. No special tools are required to operate our equipment and we avoid proprietary “black box” radio communications interfaces that are banned from some work sites.

AT LAST – A TRUE SLIMLINE GYROSCOPIC TOOL

Gyro Shot® tools use a tri-axial gyroscope module to monitor the rotation of the instrument through time. Continuous recording and self-calibration permits long-term operation while maintaining accuracy. Gyro Shot® tools also contain a magnetometer that can be used to record the magnetic profi le of the hole or, in the absence of external fi elds, as a second independent measure of the hole azimuth.

THROUGH-THE-BIT SURVEYS ARE A THING OF THE PAST (unless you want to)

Unless magnetic measurements of the rock are important, the Gyro Shot® is run inside the rods, thereby eliminating the risk of through-the-bit surveys. If you want magnetic data, you must run through-the-bit. The Gyro Shot® is slim enough to do this even in AQ® rods!
