IntelleX™ Low Power Electronic Firing Head
Probe’s IntelleX™ Low Power Electronic Firing Head is a high-integrity, memory based tool, suitable for any remote explosive or non-explosive operation where the operator requires a reduction in running costs while maintaining the highest possible degree of safety and control for a memory based tool.
The field-replaceable electronics and sensor section ensures multiple backup tools can be available at a fraction of the cost of a complete tool. A complete log of time, status, pressure, temperature, axial and radial acceleration (tilt and shock) and output voltage is stored to the tool’s flash memory for post-job analysis. A low-cost passive CCL can also be added to collect CCL data during drift run, eliminating the need for an additional correlation tool. The tool is activated or de-activated using a pre-programmed sequence of time, pressure/temperature safe windows and if required a series of pressure pulses and/or acceleration movements.
The tool is independently certified as safe for use in offshore environments and meets the recommendations of API RP67.
Various options to fire different devices are available:
• 0010-0027 IntelleX™ Low Power Electronic Firing Head (Configured to fire Dynawell Electronic Devices)
• 0010-0030 IntelleX™ Low Power Electronic Firing Head (Configured to fire EBW using the OM-1 Fireset)
• 0010-0077 IntelleX™ Low Power Electronic Firing Head (Configured to fire JRC RED Devices)
The IntelleX™ Low Power Electronic Firing Head can be used to perforate, plug and cut tubing, liner or casing and can be run on Slikcline, Electric Line or coil tubing and is suitable for TCP or DST operations.
The following data is from 11 tools purchased by one Client and gives a very good indication on the reliability of the IntelleX™ Low Power Electronic Firing Head. The following data details that some problems were seen with initial tools delivered in early 2010 and the failure modes reported have now been overcome as shown, when the data from September 2011 tool deliveries are compared with the earlier tool deliveries.
