Description

LineMinder products are state-of-the-art, rugged, high-brightness, capacitive touch-panel screens. They are available in either 7- or 10-in. versions for ATEX Zone 2 areas (with USB connections for data export) or in 10 in. for safe area operations. The ATEX versions are rated for operation from -4 to 122 °F (-20 to 50 °C) and can be stored between -40 and 140 °F (-40 and 60 °C).

The LineMinder Slickline provides depth, speed, and tension, with a safety shutdown function on tension. The LineMinder Logging also features a full-screen trend display and safety action functions triggered by differential tension limits. Optionally, the LineMinder Logging version can be extended with serial or Ethernet data forwarding and a configurable well-pressure display. The LineMinder Winch Control offers all the features of the LineMinder Logging with the addition of constant speed control, thus enabling smooth logging operations.

LineMinder Logging

The LineMinder Logging provides depth, speed, and tension, with a safety shutdown function on tension, and features a fullscreen trend display. Optionally, the LineMinder Logging version can be extended with serial or Ethernet data forwarding and a configurable well-pressure display. These options require additional hardware. The product has been designed for use in harsh environments and outdoor applications. Its robust glass touchscreen and AR glass surface treatment provide superior performance.

LineMinder Logging software features

  • Trend chart displaying up to 3 curves from depth, speed, tension or well pressures
  • Well pressure monitoring
  • Data forwarding capability
  • Diff tension sound and/or action alarm

LineMinder Winch Control

The LineMinder Winch Control provides constant speed control, speed limitation, pay-out function, and joystick control with sensitivity adjustment—all in addition to the features of the LineMinder Logging. Like the LineMinder Logging, it can be optionally extended with data forwarding and a configurable well-pressure display. These options require additional hardware. The product has been designed for use in harsh environments and outdoor applications. Its robust glass touchscreen and AR glass surface treatment provide superior performance.

Note: The LineMinder Winch Control requires a PLC-controlled Elmar™ winch unit.

Winch Control software features

  • Magnetic mark detection and depth correction
  • Constant speed control
  • Speed limitation
  • Joystick control mode with sensitivity adjustment
  • Pay-out function

LineMinder Backup

The LineMinder Backup is designed for use as a secondary backup display for measuring head signals. The screen has the same touch and feel as a LineMinder Slickline, but the alarms and shutdown are suppressed.

LineMinder Options

In addition to our standard products, we offer several options and upgrades to the LineMinder software.

Well Pressures – The LineMinder Logging system can display well pressures where suitable sensors are connected. These signals are input into the system through the well-pressure interface box, which is connected to the LineMinder Logging system through a serial bus. The box is available in Rigsafe and ATEX Zone 2 versions.

Through the well-pressures interface box, up to four well pressures can be displayed on the LineMinder Logging main screen (not available with the LineMinder Slickline). A maximum of three well-pressure signals can be displayed on the trend display of the LineMinder Logging, giving the operator direct visible feedback on the main job parameters. The pressures are recorded together with depth, speed, and tension signals, making job analysis and reporting easy.

Each well pressure can be assigned with a specific name. This name is used as reference in each of the display locations: main screen, recording files, and trend chart.

Data Forwarding – The LineMinder data forwarding box is required to interface with logging systems. Eclips and Warrior systems are supported as standard; please contact us for details of other systems.

Eclips (Serial) – When using the Eclips system, the data forwarding box receives depth, speed, and tension data from the Eclips system via serial communication. The Eclips data are displayed on the LineMinder. Commands (e.g., set depth) given on LineMinder will be sent through the data forwarding box to the Eclips system. The physical connection type is serial RS-232 with full handshake.

Warrior (Ethernet) – When using the Warrior system, the data forwarding box sends depth, speed, and tension data to the Warrior system via Ethernet. Commands (e.g., set depth) given by the Warrior system are processed by the LineMinder system. On the Warrior system, SmartOff ice needs to be installed. This program is responsible for the Ethernet communication with the Warrior system.
