Collar-Based Downhole Logger

RECON™ CB1™ downhole tool: increasing your intelligence spectrum

The RECON CB1 is a collar-based high-density data logging tool that captures high-resolution data to provide the most accurate picture of the drilling environment to allow you to zoom in and see everything, including torque, weight-on-bit and internal and external pressure. As in the case of the MK1, you can use this for environmental measurements, support information for equipment research and development activities and optimization of your drilling procedures and practises.

The solution for BHA monitoring

  • On-site summary report, generated in seconds, to make fast decision on operational parameters for subsequent runs.
  • Near-bit high-fidelity environmental data collection for increasing efficiency on subsequent operations and drilling optimization without affecting the bottom hole assembly (BHA) design.
  • Logging for preventive maintenance of equipment used in harsh environments.
  • Data collection for field trials of new tools during research and development when high frequency environmental data is not available from the R&D tool.

Recon Downhole Data Loggers


The RECON MK1 is a miniature high-density data logging tool that captures high-resolution data to provide the most accurate picture of the drilling environment.


The RECON TR1 is a tiny logging tool that captures statistical and burst environmental data to provide a high quality overview of the drilling environment.


The RECON LT1 is a tiny indicator that can measure the use of equipment for preventative maintenance schedules.


The RECON CB1 measures all the high-density parameters of the MK1 and, because it is collar-based, it also records force, torque and pressure.
