ALT develops and offers versatile data acquisition systems designed for your unique applications.
Our products MATRIX , SCOUT and OPAL are based on modern electronics design in which software control techniques have been used to its best advantage to make the logging operators life easier and reduce the fail rate.
The hardware incorporates the latest electronic components with embedded systems entirely controlled by the operator through the specially developed LoggerSuite software application.
Our smallest data acquisition system SCOUT offers the unique combination of high performance, ruggedness and ease of use appreciated by logging operators worldwide.It supports all tools with an ALT protocol including all ALT/Mount Sopris probes from the Quick Link (QL) product line. SCOUT is optimized for use with the 2nd generation acoustic and optical televiewers – collecting data at baud rates of up to 500,000 bits per second.
The data acquisition box MATRIX is able to accommodate multiple telemetry systems, including all ALT/Mount Sopris probes, past and present, as well as many 3rd party tools.This versatility, combined with its compact size and dependable performance, has made the MATRIX one of the most popular loggers in the industry.
The system design philosophy of the Open Platform Advanced Logger is unique in two ways when comparing with other acquisition systems of the same class.Firstly it is totally software controlled, and secondly it has been built to accommodate multivendor tool types. By default the OPAL operates all tools using the ALT/MSI, the PROBE PTX-Intellex and KUSTER telemetry communication protocols.
It is also the preferred system to run the Borehole Magnetic Resonance (QL40 BMR60) developed by Qteq.
For customers running ALT tools without the latest generation of telemetry, we supply a telemetry trainer that improves telemetry performance on long, bandwidth limited wirelines.
The Telemetry Trainer, in conjunction with an OPAL, SCOUTPRO or SCOUT acquisition system allows the electrical transfer function of a wireline to be computed. A filter is calculated from the transfer function that can be applied to the telemetry signal to counteract the distortion of the communication pulses sent through the wireline.
