MUD Pulse Receiver MPRx (DIS & PCI)

The XXT Mud Pulse Receiver (MPRx) card accepts and decodes the mud pulse telemetry signal provided by the pressure transmitter.

The MPRx is designed to be incorporated into a Rig Floor Display (RFD) assembly.

The MPRx utilizes XXT’s best-in-class decoding algorithms to receive and decode the telemetry pulses received from the standpipe’s pressure transmitter. The decoded mud pulse telemetry is then presented to the DRT for use by the surface equipment. 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.

Licensed version of MPRx includes fully supported latest-generation XXT software suite.
