Mud Pulse Surface System

The Enteq surface system is based around the xxMWD/PC program suite. This PC based solution offers a unique, feature rich range of programs and utilities to cover every MWD option. Advanced options such as Dynamic Sequencing save operating time and optimize data throughput.

Each surface unit contains the Enteq MPRx card which utilizes XXT’s best-in-class decoding algorithms to receive and decode the telemetry pulses received from the standpipe’s pressure transmitter. Robust hardware, filtering and embedded firmware is used to remove mud pump and other undesirable noise, allowing the XXT downhole sensors to transmit data at maximum bit rates.

There is a choice of ruggedized surface units both fully rated to Class 1 Div 2 specification:

  • Laversab 4152 unit
