Short Bench Tree Electronics Module (BTEM)

The Short Bench Tree Electronics Module (BTEM) allows customers to utilize their legacy orientation modules with the added benefits of the 3D-Instrument (3D-I). The BTEM combines intelligent processing, efficient power, improved durability, and proven high-temperature electronics. It can be integrated into most standard legacy MWD-LWD systems, providing added flexibility during drilling operations and offering an innovative and competitive solution.
The chassis design improves stability, reliability, and accuracy over other configurations since the connector system is reduced and boards are potted directly into the chassis; thus, eliminating connector and vibration issues that plague legacy drop-in processors and power supplies.
