Digital Control’s Eclipse SST
March 3, 2008

Digital Control’s DigiTrak Eclipse SST advanced HDD guidance system is easy to use, and it delivers quick and accurate steering data. The system eliminates the need for a DC wire grid and its lengthy setup time. Due to the small size of the SST transmitter (4), tight turning radii can be achieved. The SST system monitors the tool”s compass heading (azimuth) in degrees and provides the operator with a lateral deviation (in degrees) from the intended path for quick steering corrections. With the Eclipse receiver (1) and remote display (3), the operator can view real-time position and depth data. A laptop computer (2) also graphically displays the tool”s progress in real time. It shows both a profile view of the bore and a bird”s-eye view of the lateral deviation. Real time measurements features include: Compass heading (azimuth) in 0.1 degree increments; Tool face (roll) in 360 positions; Inclination (pitch) in 0.1 percent or degree increments; Computed depth and lateral position; Available as an upgrade to the Eclipse iGPS Locating system.
