Cabled Boretrak® borehole deviation measurement system
Cabled Boretrak, as an alternative to Rodded Boretrak, is used to help achieve safer, more efficient blasts, with reduced environmental impact.
You can read more about borehole deviation, and how Boretrak works to help you address the problems caused by failure to drill to plan on our Boretrak overview page.
Cabled Boretrak is chosen most often for our quarrying customers, who want a quick and and portable device for downhole deployment only.
Portable and easy to deploy:
The complete Cabled Boretrak system fits neatly in a rugged Peli case.
In the field, all that is required is the probe, with cable attached, and a toughened CDU to record data...a total weight of 5kg.
Deployment of Cabled Boretrak first involves lowering the unit to the bottom of the hole. The integral cable is toughened for durability.
Users can retrieve the unit at two metre intervals. At each interval a single button press on the CDU is required. The dual axis tilt sensor and digital compass calculate borehole deviation at each interval.
Data is saved in the CDU and downloaded in the office via serial cable.
Cabled Boretrak is supplied with a weighted extension piece, which customers fill with lead shot or sand, to ballast the system in deep or flooded holes.
A calibration jig is supplied to allow regular in-field recalibration of the compass. This is a simple five-minute procedure.
