The RSS is a mandatory component in a Memory-RAS string. Positioned between the battery and MLT, it is equipped with pressure and temperature sensors to monitor borehole conditions against user programmable thresholds. A power switch is included in the RSS to disable battery power to MLT (and all attached tools) in case of tool failure.
In a Memory-RAS operation, the RSS will serve as a watchdog for MLT’s health (via handshaking in a designated communication link) and periodically reporting instantaneous pressure and temperature measurements to MLT. In case of communication failure or MLT requesting a reboot, the RSS enters a reset cycle which will cut off power to MLT and RAS, and re-enabling the power downstream after 45 seconds. This operation will automatically put RAS into idle mode and allow MLT to re-initialize and to recover from a failure.
