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.
