Infinity Seismic RFID-enables Its Geophone Testers
The company's CheckMate Land handheld device is available with an RFID reader, to automatically identify the testing of geophones used by the oil and gas industry in measuring seismic activity.
Therefore, a CheckMate Land customer requested an RFID-enabled solution, says Brooks Radighieri, Divercety's manager. The customer indicated that using radio frequency identification would speed up the process of recording geophone test results specific to a particular string, and ensure the results' accuracy.
Consequently, Infinity Seismic developed its Checkmate RFID Accessory device, which plugs directly into the tester. The unit, according to Mike Scott, Vercét's project manager and director of research and development in electronics and materials science, is constructed with a Sparkfun Electronics 125 kHz RFID reader module, which can read 125 kHz LF passive RFID tags made with an EM Microelectronic EM4001 chip.
Since the product's release two weeks ago, Radighieri reports, there have not yet been any end users.
Infinity Seismic is also marketing its CheckMate RFID Accessory as an accessory product for its new CheckMate-Marine hydrophone tester. Hydrophones are used to record sound waves from beneath the Earth's surface, delivering data indicating where oil and gas deposits may be located. The CheckMate-Marine tester is a portable device for testing each hydrophone, in order to verify its ability to provide accurate data.
