Surface Depth and Time Recorder (DTS)

Surface Depth and Time Recorder (DTS)

New product


The Surface Depth and Time Recorder (DTS) is a ruggedized depth and speed data recorder for Slickline and Coiled Tubing memory logging, although it may be used for other applications where recording trips in and out the whole will improve the process. The depth from a shaft encoder is recorded against time together with other analogue channels such as wireline tension, wellhead pressure or even a flowmeter. The DTS is intrinsically safe (IS).

The purpose of the DTS is to supply: Data logging against time, Depth/time data for merging in Memory tools, Real time display of depth and Line speed for the winch operator.

Depth, Time, Cable Speed and Tension Cable are displayed in real time. In addition, other parameters and analogue channels, and Frequency channels are displayed.

The system has two modes: Configuration, and Logging Mode.
