DCS Utilizing Maxon Heavy Duty Motors for Drilling Electromate 1 400

Having reliable information is crucial for drilling technicians so that they can respond quickly and make corrections when needed. The term Measurement While Drilling (MWD) refers to the use of measurement modules behind a drill head. How does it work?


The control system measures angle, vibration, and drilling speed. The pulser unit sends the collected information back to the surface, across thousands of meters, through pulses in the drill mud ( called Mud Pulse Telemetry or MPT). These pulses are generated by an actuator system driven by maxon’s Heavy Duty assembly.

ENI90 Series Incremental Rotary EncodersAsynchronous motors or generators require high-precision speed control. For such applications, Pepperl+Fuchs has expanded its portfolio of hollow shaft rotary encoders with the ENI90 series.

With integrated BlueBeam technology, these compact and robust incremental rotary encoders bring maximum precision to any standard or heavy-duty application, and can withstand rotational speeds of up to 6,000 rpm due to strong shock resistance. For speed control, scanning is performed with blue LED light. Compared to infrared light, this achieves the highest signal quality currently available, the best efficiency and a very high resolution.

Omron Whitepaper - MVRC: Mark, Verify, Read and Communicate

Utopias are common in fiction, from Plato’s The Republic to The Federation in Star Trek. For manufacturers, a world without unplanned downtime would be the perfect utopia. The question is, is abolishing unplanned downtime a far-fetched dream, or is it closer than we think?

According to research by Oneserve, machine downtime is costing British manufacturers over £180 billion a year. Unplanned downtime halts production, but can also lead to wasted raw materials or damage to the system itself – amplifying the cost beyond loss of production. Further research conducted by GE Digital found that 70 per cent of companies lack full awareness of when equipment is due for maintenance, upgrade or repair..
