IQ-BORE-PRO_WIRELESS_OEM_vert.jpg IQ-BORE-Wireless BOREHOLE PROFILER is designed for magnetically clean applications and includes SOLID STATE advanced Pitch / Roll / Temperature compensated miniature compass system. It is built around a state of the art Cortex microcontroller utilizing AOSI’s proprietary algorithm on a 0.9″ x 2″ x 0.5″  assembled PCB. It is available as an OEM system with a mini probe or in a field suitable rugged probe, available motorized winches and custom cable. The mini probe can be installed in any larger size probe enclosure for submersible, high pressure  or other custom applications.

The OEM system includes 1” diameter 5” long mini probe, color handheld display controller and cable. The new mini probe is able to provide total borehole profile information. It displays borehole and tool face directions, X-Y-Z magnetic fields, borehole pitch, tool roll and temperature on most ANDROID or I-PHONE smartphones via standard Low Power Bluetooth link.

The system is powered by a single 9Vdc cell. Custom APP monitors and controls all communications with the mini probe, sends and receives user commands and displays graphic and numeric data on the screen. All displayed data is in real time.  The system also includes special reinforced abrasion resistant cable. Due to the systems modular construction the cable is available in various standard and custom lengths and marked depth increments of “1ft, 5 ft, 10ft, 1m, 3m, 5m”. Automatic depth counter/measurement option is available.

The system can profile both VERTICAL as well as HORIZONTAL boreholes, therefor there is no need to have two separate borehole deviation probes (one for each orientation). The user does not need to retract the probe or go through prolonged setups and re-calibration procedures in order to switch between orientation modes.

Single tap on the screen instantly switches from vertical profiling mode to horizontal, or vice-versa. This is achieved by sensing magnetic field of Earth together with pitch and roll orientation of the mini probe. Then it uses AOSI’s algorithm to accurately calculate the 3D orientation of the mini probe and its direction.

Storage of boreholes data is achieved via integrated logging feature and stored in phones memory in dedicated files.  Data is easily transferred  to any PC via E-Mail or text for further analysis. Example of a custom clients software shows easy viewing of each borehole data in graphical and numerical modes. W7.



AileronRoll.gifWhile in Horizontal mode, the system operates in a special ( Aileron Roll mode ). Just like a rolling jet flying forward rolling around its longitudinal axis, the magnetic probe while at any roll orientation inside the borehole, still outputs accurate borehole direction. Accurate direction is maintained at borehole inclinations of -75 to +75 degrees. This advanced feature sets the AOSI’s system apart from other borehole profiling tools.For inclination angles above |75| degrees, it is recommended to switch to a vertical mode.

This system is perfectly suitable for numerous Trenchless applications like HDD (horizontal directional drilling) and verification of prescribed paths for underground conduits, pipes and cables. The probe can detect and display deviations and/or deflections in horizontal directional drilling drills trajectory attributed to fractured formations or formations changing from soft to hard and back to soft sections.

EZ-BOREHOLE-PROFILER OEM can be most useful in any of the following directional drilling applications where other methods are more expensive or not feasible:

Borehole steering

Power cable installation

Crossing waterways and roadways

Water/sewer/gas/oil line installation

Telecommunications conduit installation

Pipeline and environmental inspections

Congested intersection & shore approaches

Reduction of flyrock during blasting

Balancing explosive energy to volume of blasted material

Users can operate the system in both PUSH-IN and RETRACT direction with preset depth segment settings of 1ft, 5ft, 10ft, 1m, 3m and 5m.

Simple file retrieval software lets users transfer files between handheld controller to any PC. Profile and rear views of measured boreholes including TRUE VERTICAL DEPTH ( TVD ) are easily viewed with same software.
