IGPS Locator for the HDD Industry
August 1, 2003
The DigiTrak Eclipse system from Digital Control Inc. is an iGPS locator for the HDD industry that displays drill head location and locates points in a real-time bird’s-eye view. Because of its antenna configuration, the Eclipse system can perform techniques such as left/right and up/down remote steering. Overhead depth, projected depth and slant depth are presented in real time. Its calibration procedure offers accuracy and the ability to recalibrate while drilling. Other drilling features include off-track guidance when access is limited, a simplified remote steering function and a programmable target depth and direction feature. Digital Control Inc.
