Down hole camera

Introducing Hitwell Deep Well Imaging’s newest line, the ACE™ Digital Imaging System – our latest in telemetry design with additional features for well and camera readings.

“ACE” down hole cameras are available in both 2‑3/8” (60.3mm) OD HT/HP ‘Big Boy’ and 1‑11/16” (42.9mm) OD ‘SlimHole’ tools. All Hitwell borehole cameras are designed for flawless operation on single or multi-conductor standard electric wireline. Our high temperature cameras also perform well with coiled E-tubing and tractors for surveying in deviated wells.


Down hole camera system“ACE” Advantages … Numerous!

No two wireline cables are the same, so we provide you with new system features for quality viewing at the well surface, plus control and trim functions that overcome wireline problems downhole … all from the provided Panasonic TOUGHBOOK™ laptop and “ACE” Power/Imaging Control Unit. Part of our “ACE” borehole camera system.

From our “ACE” Graphical User Interface, well information and controls are at your fingertips. All image data and well metric information is integrated in the P/ICU to this powerful tool. Your well survey is recorded to a USB thumb drive through a port on the front of the P/ICU in the industry standard AVI format.  Still images can be quickly saved as files on the laptop and sent as email attachments while the log is running.

The “ACE” borehole camera system also includes a built-in printer, allowing well images, along with all well metrics (depth, date, time, etc.) to be distributed immediately at the well site.

Popcorn and a movie …

Up to 6 Wi-Fi connected devices can display real-time deep well camera video onsite. Any device with a web browser (PC, Mac, tablet, iPhone, Android, etc.) can have access to the video stream. This would allow the borehole camera system operator, company representative, winch operator, and consultant to all see the borehole logging progress without the need for all of them to huddle around a single screen.

Included with the “ACE” System is our versatile Hitwell ReViewer™ application (for Windows based PCs). Our new video reviewing app is freely distributed to clients with all supplied Hitwell thumb drives. We provide all the navigation features normally reserved for studio quality ‘video review’ software. With the Hitwell ReViewer™, a user can quickly select an AVI well video file, navigate to areas of interest or use the powerful search features (by depth, deviation, saved text, and more) within the file. In a hurry? Multiple Fast/Forward and Fast/Reverse functions speed you to your destination.
