Inertial Sensing recently released their 32mm NorthFinder MEMS based survey system at the PDAC conference in Toronto. The tool was on show and created a lot of interest from various sectors.
The new NorthFinder takes independent readings at survey stations, giving gyro toolface, azimuth, inclination as well as gravity highside. The main purpose of the NorthFinder is to serve as an independent reference together with the isGyro for deep vertical boreholes.
The NorthFinder consumes very little power due to being based on MEMS sensors, using as little as 1 W of power. This is especially useful when running the instrument in a heat shield as it vastly improves the downhole time, generating very little heat compared to competing systems.
The gyro compass and accelerometer data are transferred to the field computer using WiFi which ensures very fast data transfer. The transfer time is less than a minute even for large surveys. The NorthFinder survey software is easy to use and install. The survey software runs on multiple Windows platforms including XP, 7, 8, 10 on both 32 and 64-bit systems.

Today marks an exciting day for the Handheld Group with the much anticipated release of the all new Algiz RT7 Rugged Android Tablet.
The Algiz RT7, which runs Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop), provides a wide range of features and exceptional value to mobile workforces. It’s fully rugged, meeting stringent MIL-STD-810G U.S. military standards for protection against drops, vibrations and extreme temperatures, and its IP65 rating means that it’s waterproof as well as fully sealed against sand and dust. Weighing just 650 grams, the Algiz RT7 is designed for mobility.
Industry-leading technology from Qualcomm — an MSM8916 (Snapdragon) chipset and 1.2 GHz quad-core processor — powers the Algiz RT7 for impressive processing speed, ultra-fast connectivity and long battery life. The Algiz RT7 comes standard with LTE data and voice capabilities as well as 802.11 b/g/n WLAN, BT Class 1 and Class 2, and NFC functionality. It also boasts dual cameras (8-megapixel rear-facing and 2-megapixel front-facing), as well as dual SIM card slots. The unit comes with a built-in accelerometer, gyroscope and e-compass and a stand-alone u-blox GPS receiver for navigation.
Designed for the mobile worker, the Algiz RT7 sports a high-brightness 7-inch outdoor-viewable capacitive display that can handle true outdoor challenges. Battery performance is key for any mobile application, and the Algiz RT7 comes with a long-life 3.7V 6000mAh lithium-ion battery. Four programmable buttons allow users to launch and use applications in the field. To enhance data capture, users can choose an optional 2D imager or RFID plus 2D imager.
After years of research and development, Inertial Sensing's all new SlimGyro boasts significant hardware improvements.
The innovative electrical design features built into the ultra-slim gyro have resulted in huge performance increases in rate measurement and survey data management.
State of the art power management systems incorporated into the new SlimGyro deliver spectacular energy efficiency improvements, dramatically extending downhole survey time capability. With less than 0.2 watts of power consumption, the standard battery can keep the gyro system powered up and surveying for up to 80 hours, longer than necessary to complete the most demanding time-wise surveying job.
These new and exciting innovations are now being incorporated into existing products such as the isGyro, demonstrating Inertial Sensing's dedication to constant improvement and development of the technology.
The all new SlimGyro and isGyro are now available.
GyroMax utilise Handheld rugged field PC's for operational control of their directional survey instrumentation.
We are currently undergoing field trials of the Algiz 10X in running our isGyro survey systems. To date our gyro systems have been controlled using Handheld's Algiz 7 field PC. This system has proven to be extremely reliable in harsh Australian conditions.
The Algiz 10X offers the same level of ruggedness with the added benefits of a larger screen for easier viewing and touch functionality. It is rated to IP65 and meets stringent MIL-STD-810G military standards for protecting against dust, water, vibrations, drops, extreme temperatures and varying altitudes.
