In order to address the growing demands of the geophysical industry for even larger channel counts, high performance digital receivers, and greater layout flexibility; Sercel has expanded upon the well known successes of the 408UL system to include even greater capabilities and expanded ownership value in the 428XL acquisition system.
New Hardware and Software
Carrying on the efficient design of the 408UL System, the 428XL requires less power, lasts longer, and is more reliable than any of its competitors on the market today. The 428XL offers all new hardware and software which is specifically designed to meet the needs of large channel count operations while improving conventional operations. It is also compatible with the 408UL field equipment.
The 428XL makes it easy for your crews to shoot the most accurate data in the least amount of time, with the fewest possible trucks and people in the field. The 428XL uses new line electronics that are smaller and lighter, and can address more channels as the group interval gets smaller. The 428XL system also introduces a new radio telemetry option. With this increased layout flexibility, seismic crews are able to avoid all types of obstacles and achieve greater field efficiency.
Channel Capacity & Speed
With a capacity of 100,000 channels – backed by a new telemetry structure that boosts by 500 percent the number of channels a wire transverse cable can address in real time at 2 ms – the 428XL gives you outstanding accuracy, speed and ease of use for even the largest surveys.
