FAQ#025 – How get good readings with inclinometer probe?

A good practice for getting good readings with inclinometer probe is to follow these simple operations: – Use the same probe for each survey, if possible; – if you must use a different probe, be sure to note the serial number of the probe used for each survey, so any necessary corrections can be made during data processing; – protect the probe from shock, which contributes to zero shift and sensor rotation.

Transport the probe in its carrying case. – power up the probe before you lower it into the borehole. – wait 10 minutes for the probe to adjust to the temperature of the borehole up to the displayed readings will be stabilized within two units and validate data; – validate data on site using checksum statistics, if you are using the Nadir readout.
