The Acquisition system hardware incorporates the latest electronic components with embedded systems controlled via the specially developed LoggerSuite Windows interface program.
The software takes advantage of the latest Microsoft Windows operating systems, including Windows 8, (64-bit systems). These multi-tasking software platforms can accommodate all the tasks necessary for maximum data security and ease of operation.
Many new features have been added to the LoggerSuite software and hardware, including:
- New binary data format with .TFD extension
- Dual DSP (Digital Signal Processors) to handle data communications, pulse tool signal detection and analog signal measurement and generation
- Programmable Tool Power Supply
- Tool Voltage and Current monitoring
- USB interface to the PC for higher digital tool data rates allowing faster logging
- The system design philosophy is unique in two respects. First, it has been built to accommodate several generations of single conductor, Mount Sopris tool types, as well as single and multi-conductor ALT tools. And second, it is totally software controlled
The basic system design criteria are as follows:
- Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows XP or Windows Vista operating systems platform running in 32-bit or 64-bit drivers.
- Rugged, fault tolerant electronics with dual DSP processors.
- Easy to use, on-screen graphical user interface -The LoggerSuite Dashboard- with self-diagnostic features, system configurable through screen dialog boxes, with minimal technical knowledge needed by the user.
- Wireline and winch flexibility – runs on most coax, single and multi-conductor wire lines with compatible tools.
- Depth encoder flexibility – compatible with most 12V or 5V AB Quadrature and pulse shaft encoders, and configurable for any combination of wheel/depth pulses per revolution.
- All Matrix Consoles come with latest LoggerSuite software. Latest version of this software package can be downloaded from the MSI Software Downloads Page.
