Subsite Electronics launches HDD guidance system for high-interference areas
Subsite Electronics has introduced the Marksman HDD Guidance System, ideal for interference mitigation/avoidance and beacon performance.
"Interference can negatively impact jobsite productivity," said Alex Wagner, product marketing manager. "But Marksman cuts through the noise. With the widest frequency in the market today, you can confidently go downhole with 64 power level and frequency combinations at your disposal. The Marksman's Bore Path Analyzer scans the most usable frequencies, selecting the best choice to avoid interference so you can drill more effectively."
According to Subsite, Marksman's beacon performance drives bore productivity in other ways as well. The new guidance system offers improved communication between the tracker and beacon at extended depths (130+ feet). The beacon's dual-power mode offers consistent performance across housing sizes. Calibration speeds have also been increased.
Ease-of-use was another key element in the design of the Marksman system. The tracker is operated with a single toggle control, with no extra buttons or triggers. The system also gives operators their choice of user interface. The streamlined controls and choice of user-friendly interfaces work together to help operators be more productive from day one.
Marksman offers two advanced locating methods. Users can select between Walkover Mode, which lets you pinpoint drill-head location with peak and null techniques, or an improved Drill-To Mode with an unrestricted extended range that enables the drill operator to make real-time corrections further out, expediting the drilling process.
