Q

Can SQUID data be collected wirelessly?

A

Yes, however, wireless collection is only one of 3 available collection modes, which include Hard-Wire, Hard-Wire and Wireless Transmitter, and Wireless Transmitter Only. • The Hard-Wire Connection Mode requires that the SQUID Body and Tablet are connected via wire. Users can view the Force-Displacement plot being developed in real-time. • The Hard-Wire and Wireless Transmitter option also requires a wire and the user can observe the Force-Displacement plots being developed in real-time. In comparison to the Hard-Wire Connect mode, this option requires that the wireless transmitter is lowered into the hole with the SQUID Body. • The Wireless Transmitter mode does not require a wire to perform data collection. The data, however, cannot be viewed until the SQUID Body returns to the surface.
