IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE

Proper service and repair is important to the safe, reliable operation of all M/D Totco equipment.
The service procedures recommended by M/D Totco and described in the technical manuals are
recommended methods of performing service operations. When these service operations require
the use of tools specially designed for the purpose, those special tools should be used as recom-
mended. Warnings against the use of specific service methods that can damage equipment or
render it unsafe are stated in the manuals. These warnings are not exclusive, as M/D Totco could
not possibly know, evaluate and advise service people of all conceivable ways in which service
might be done or of all possible associated hazardous consequences. Accordingly, anyone who
uses service procedures or tools which are not recommended by M/D Totco must first satisfy
themselves thoroughly that neither personnel safety nor equipment safety will be jeopardized by
the method selected.

2-5 SENSORS
The MUDWATCH display panel displays data supplied by:
• Pit level sensors
• Mud flow sensors
• Pump stroke sensors
• Customer-specified optional sensor

2-5-1 Pit Level Sensors


Pit level sensors are used to measure the volume in surface mud tanks so that volume
increases or decreases can be detected. They are powered by +5 VDC from the DAQ and
output a voltage signal that is proportional to the mud level in the tank. The DAQ uses this
signal to calculate individual tank volume, total volume and gain/loss for all active mud
tanks and trip tanks.
Two types of pit level sensors are available. They are described in the following para-
graphs.

2-5-1-1 Pit Level Sensor P/N 272819-series

These pit level sensors (Figure 2-8) are used in MUDWATCH systems contain-
ing a DAQ with internal barriers.
A tubular stainless steel probe containing a staggered series of switches that
make up a voltage divider is mounted vertically in the tank and is connected to
the DAQ. A float attached to the probe moves with the mud level. Magnets in
the float cause the switches to close. Thus, as mud level varies, a voltage propor-
tional to the mud level is supplied to the DAQ.

DESCRIPTION Manual 60-30
2-5-1-2 Pit Level Sensor P/N H10924A-series

These pit level sensors (Figure 2-9) are used in MUDWATCH systems contain-
ing an external sensor barrier box.
A tubular stainless steel probe containing a slider is mounted vertically in a
bracket attached to the tank bottom. The slider is connected to the drive gear of a
potentiometer, located in a housing at the top of the probe. A float attached to
the probe moves with the mud level, and a magnet inside the float attracts the
slider. Thus, as mud level varies, the slider moves, and the potentiometer output
varies proportionally.
For a detailed description of this sensor, refer to Manual TW1022.

MUDWATCH - System 4 CHAPTER 2
Manual 60-30 DESCRIPTION

2-5-2 Mud Flow Sensors


Mud flow sensors are used to measure the amount of mud exiting the well bore so that gas
kicks, invasion of formation fluid or loss of circulation can be detected. They are powered
by dc voltage from the DAQ and output a voltage signal proportional to the amount of
mud exiting. The DAQ uses the mud flow sensor signal to calculate% return flow.
A flow sensor mounts on the return flow pipe between the well head and mud pits, with a
paddle extending through a cut-out in the pipe. As mud flows through the pipe, the paddle
is deflected. The angle of deflection is proportional to the volume of mud flowing and the
rate of flow. The sensor outputs a signal proportional to the paddle deflection.
Two flow sensors are available for use with MUDWATCH. They are described in the fol-
lowing paragraphs.

2-5-2-1 Mud Flow Sensor P/N MFTX4A-5

This sensor (Figure 2-10) is approved for use in all MUDWATCH systems. The
paddle on this sensor drives a potentiometer, which outputs a dc analog signal
proportional to the angle of deflection of the paddle.
Refer to Manual TW658 for details on this sensor.

2-5-3 Pump Stroke Sensor


Pump stroke sensors are used to detect individual strokes of the mud pump. The MUD-
WATCH pump stroke sensor (Figure 2-12) is powered by +10 VDC from the DAQ and is
designed to be mounted through the mud pump inspection plate. It is metal-sensitive and
produces a signal pulse whenever a metal plate (i.e., pump crosshead or collar) passes
within 10 mm of the sensor head. Each pulse typically represents one pump stroke. The
DAQ uses these signal pulses to calculate strokes per minute and total strokes for each
pump, as well as for all pumps collectively.

3-11 SENSOR INSTALLATION


All MUDWATCH sensors supply input to the DAQ. In systems using a DAQ with internal safety
barriers, sensor cables can be routed through a junction box (optional) and then connected to the
DAQ field termination board. In systems using a barrierless DAQ, sensor cables can be routed
through a junction box (optional), then through a sensor barrier box (required) and connected to
the field termination board. Tables 4-4 and 4-5 list the default analog and digital connectors for
each sensor.

CAUTION
Be sure to connect each sensor to its default connector. Otherwise, the
MUDWATCH configuration must be modified to identify the connectors
used.

3-11-1 DAQ Sensor Connections


All sensor cables are connected to the DAQ field termination board. The main features of
this board are summarized below and identified in Figure 3-15. To connect sensor cables,
use DAQ sensor cable screwdriver mounted in the DAQ to open the connector slot, then
insert the wire.
• Analog Sensor Terminal Blocks - J1A through J23A; used to provide
excitation voltage to and receive input from analog sensors, including
MUDWATCH pit level and mud flow sensors.
• Analog Sensor Voltage/Current Switches - Located to the right of J1A
through J23A, these red rocker switches are used to identify each analog
sensor input as current or voltage and provide the corresponding excita-
tion. For MUDWATCH pit level sensors and mud flow sensor, these
switches should be set to "voltage" (i.e., depressed away from the center
of the DAQ).
• Digital Sensor Terminal Blocks - J1D through J14D; used to provide
excitation voltage to and receive input from digital sensors, including the
MUDWATCH pump stroke sensors. These terminal blocks are also used
if the DAQ is used to drive other instruments, such as chart recorders.
• Power-Out Terminal Blocks - J1P through J6P; supply power to other
instruments. These terminal blocks are used in a typical MUDWATCH
system to power the external pump stroke sensor safety barriers.
• EDMS Input Terminal Blocks - J2S, J1R; used to connect an Electronic
Depth Monitoring System to the DAQ. These terminal blocks are not
used in a typical MUDWATCH system.

Procedures for installing MUDWATCH flow sensors are presented in the following para-
graphs.

3-11-3-1 Installation Of Mud Flow Sensor P/N 270700-116

Follow the steps below to adjust and install this mud flow sensor.
1. Remove transmitter top cover (Figure 3-20). Disconnect and
remove signal cable.
2. Check for the following resistances:
• 1.4 - 1.5 K ohms across terminals 1 and 2 with sensor paddle in
position "A" and
• 3.5 - 4.5 K ohms across terminals 1 and 2 with sensor paddle in
position "B"
3. If resistance from position “A” to “B” is out of tolerance, loosen
bell crank set screw and connect digital resistance meter to termi-
nals 1 and 2. With sensor paddle in position “A”, adjust drive
shaft for reading of 1.4 - 1.5 K ohms across terminals 1 and 2 and
tighten set screw.
If required resistance cannot be obtained, check for faulty electrical and
mechanical components, including potentiometer, resistor and linkage
assembly between paddle and drive shaft. Refer to Manual 27-45A for
additional information.
4. Raise paddle from position “A” to position “B”; if reading
decreases, swap positions of wires connected to terminals 1 and
3. Then raise paddle from position “A” to “B” and ensure that
reading increases to 3.5 - 4.5 K ohms.
5. Ensure that mud pumps are shut down. Then proceed to Step 6.
6. Select a location on the flow line for installing the mud flow sen-
sor. This location must meet the following criteria:
• slopes down toward the shaker pit
• is accessible for servicing
• is above spillover level of shale shaker
• is away from bends in the flow line

NOTE
If a base is mounted to the flow line from a previous rig-up and meets the
above requirements, use it. Otherwise, proceed to Step 7.

Be sure area is free of explosive vapors before using welding torch.

7. Cut a 7.5 x 4.00 (190.5 mm x 101.6 mm) hole lengthwise in the


flow line (Figure 3-21) and weld sensor base squarely onto flow
line.
8. Determine flow line diameter and select appropriate paddle size.
9. Measure from top of flow flange to bottom of flow line to deter-
mine where on sensor to mount paddle; attach using furnished
screws. Ensure locking nuts for screws are on downstream side of
paddle. Place paddle through hole in pipe, with concave side fac-
ing upstream.
10. Ensure that when no mud is flowing and paddle is in down posi-
tion, there is a
0.25 - 0.75-inch gap (6.3 - 19 mm) between paddle and base of
pipe and there is no blockage (cement/cuttings) when sensor is
mounted in its base. Bolt sensor squarely to base.
11. Position counterweights along counterweight shaft so that paddle
returns to position “A” with no mud flow. Rotate counterweight
support several times to ensure mechanism moves freely and
returns to position “A”.

3-11-3-2 Installation Of Mud Flow Sensor P/N MFTX4A-5

Follow the steps below to install and calibrate this mud flow sensor.
1. Select a location on the flow line for installing the mud flow
sensor. This location must meet the following criteria:
• slopes down toward shaker pit
• is accessible for servicing
• is above spillover level of shale shaker
• is away from bends in the flow line

NOTE
If a base mounted to the flow line from a previous rig-up meets the above
requirements, it can be used. Otherwise, proceed to Step 2.

WARNING

Be sure area is free of explosive vapors before using welding torch.

2. Cut a 9.25" x 2.50" (235 mm x 63.5 mm) hole lengthwise in return flow
line (Figure 3-23) and weld sensor base squarely onto flow line. Be
sure base containing three holes is upstream from other end.
3. Determine flow line diameter and select appropriate paddle size.
4. Measure from top of flow flange to bottom of flow line to deter-
mine where on sensor to mount paddle, then attach using furnished
screws. Ensure locking nuts for screws are on downstream side of
paddle arm. Place paddle through hole in pipe, with concave side
facing upstream.
5. Ensure that when no mud is flowing and paddle is in down posi-
tion, there is a 0.25 - 0.75-inch gap (6.3 - 19 mm) between paddle
and base of pipe and there is no blockage (cement/cuttings) when
sensor is mounted in its base, adjust paddle using holes in paddle
arm, if necessary.
6. Ensure base has sufficiently cooled from welding; then position
neoprene gasket on face of base.
7. Rotate flow sensor approximately 90o to place paddle through opening;
then rotate it back to align body with base and bolt to base.
8. Remove potentiometer housing cover (Figure 3-24). Set sensor
zero point by holding paddle in down position. Loosen two
screws and slide potentiometer assembly until 150-250 ohms is
present between terminals 1 and 2 on TB1. Tighten screws.
9. Connect sensor cable to TB1 and then either directly to DAQ
(Figures 3-15 and3-25) or through sensor barrier box to DAQ
(Figure 3-26). Replace cover.

5. Drill a 7/8-inch (22.2 mm) mounting hole in inspection plate,
locating hole so that sensor will be in best position for detecting
pump strokes.

NOTE
A pilot hole approximately 3/8-inch (10 mm) provides accuracy for larger
drill.

6. Determine distance between crosshead and inside edge of inspec-


tion plate by placing a straight edge across opening and measur-
ing perpendicular distance. Allow 3/16 - 3/8-inch (5-10 mm)
between sensor and part of crosshead being sensed (Dimension
C, Figure 3-28).
7. Mount bulkhead union and tighten locknut (Figure 3-29).
8. Screw threaded pipe through bulkhead union until enough pipe
extends through to connect adapter and sensor.
9. Thread sensor cable through pipe and out terminal housing; then
connect adapter to pipe.
10. Ensure sensor head is within 3/8-inch (10 mm) of crosshead.
Adjust sensor by loosening locknut and turning threaded pipe as
follows: each 1-1/8 turn of the pipe moves the sensor 1/16-inch
(1.6 mm).

12. Use a voltmeter to ensure that sensor pulses when crosshead com-
pletes one full stroke. Supply power to sensor and connect meter
to sensor as shown in Figure 3-32.
13. When no metal is within sensing range (i.e., further than 3/8-inch,
or 10 mm, from sensor head), meter should read < 3.4 VDC.
14. Bump the pump with the switch or mechanically operate the
pump until the sensor senses the crosshead; meter should read >
7.5 VDC.
15. If the required voltage is not observed, or if sensor does not
respond to metal, remove signal cable, loosen locknut and turn
threaded pipe until sensor responds as required. This procedure
may have to be repeated several times until sensor is correctly
positioned.

4-2 MUDWATCH CHANNELS


The standard MUDWATCH configuration contains 42 channels that either represent display fields
(i.e., the RETURN FLOW channel represents the RETURN FLOW field) or are used to calculate
display field values (i.e., MUD PIT 1 is used to calculate the value displayed in the TOTAL
ACTIVE VOLUME field). Each channel is assigned a logical channel number, which the software
uses to identify the channel.
Table 4-1 describes each MUDWATCH channel and Table 4-3 lists the default sensor type and
required configured channels for each. Table 4-4 lists default MUDWATCH outputs, which can be
used to drive other devices, such as chart recorders or meters. Table 4-6 and Table 4-7 list calibra-
tion defaults for standard MUDWATCH systems.

For a summary of all algorithms, refer to Appendix C.
Filter Value The value, in percent, by which raw input data is filtered before
it is used in the algorithm. Each raw data value is averaged
with the previously filtered data value.
The larger the Filter Value, the more the new data value is
affected by the previous value; a Filter Value of 0 results in no
filtering. The maximum allowable filter value is 99.9.
Rate The frequency at which the channel value will be updated
Channel Type The type of channel; The algorithms use the channel type, not
the channel name, to locate input data for their calculations;
consequently, the channel type assigned to a channel should
not be changed.
Sensor Type The sensor type used for the channel.
Connector The number of the connector that the channel sensor is con-
nected to. For analog sensors, select from 1A to 23A; for digital
sensors, select a from 1D to 14D.
Conversion Factor/Con- Used by the DAQ to convert the channel to some unit other
version Addition than English units. The channel value that the DAQ sends out
to the display devices and CalConf will be the English channel
value multiplied by the conversion factor and then added to the

4-6 CALIBRATION
In standard MUDWATCH systems, the following sensor channels require analog calibration:
• All active MUD PIT channels
• All active TRIP TANK channels
• The FLOW OUT % channel
• The OPTION channel, if a sensor is connected
The sensor channels listed below require digital calibration:
• All active SPM channels
• All active STROKES channels
The following paragraphs explain how to calculate pit volume and perform analog and digital cali-
bration.

4-6-1 Mud Pit Volume Calculations


Before calibrating the MUD PIT and TRIP TANK channels, follow the steps below to cal-
culate the volume of rectangular mud pits with constant cross-section.
1. Determine height of mud column that sensor can measure as follows:
a. Record height (in feet or meters) of float when pit is empty. Measure from center
of the float.
b. Record height (in feet or meters) of float when pit is full. Measure from center of
the float.
c. Subtract height recorded in Step a from that in Step b to obtain height of mud
column that can be measured.
2. Measure length and width of pit.
3. Use dimensions from Steps 1 and 2 to calculate pit volume as follows:

mud column height (ft.) x pit length (ft.) x pit width (ft.) x 0.178 = volume in barrels (EQ 1)

or

mud column height (m) x pit length (m) x pit width (m)= volume in m3
(EQ 2)

4. Use volume calculated in Step 3 for VALUE MAX and VALUE MIN in
analog calibration.

4-6-2 Analog Sensor Channel Calibration


The output from pit level and mud flow sensors is continuous and proportional to the
quantity being measured. Analog calibration defines the relationship between sensor out-
put and data values in engineering units. This is accomplished by specifying the four val-
ues listed below:
• CALIBRATION MIN - the value of raw counts when the sensor is at
minimum output
• VALUE MIN - the value (from step 3 of Section 4-6-1) corresponding to
CALIBRATION MIN
• CALIBRATION MAX - the value of raw counts when the sensor is at
maximum output
• VALUE MAX - the value (from step 3 of Section 4-6-1) corresponding to
CALIBRATION MAX
In the following procedure, CALIBRATION MIN is determined first, then VALUE MIN-
IMUM, then CALIBRATION MIN, then VALUE MAXIMUM. However, these values
may be determined in any order.
Table 4-4 lists the default DAQ connector number and default CALIBRATION/Value
Minimum and CALIBRATION/Value Maximum values for each analog sensor channel.
Refer to this table before beginning calibration.

CONFIGURATION & CALIBRATION Manual 60-30
If the new CALIBRATION RATE (pulses per unit) is unknown, follow Steps a
through d below.
a. Verify that the CURRENT CALIBRATION RATE is one pulse per unit.
b. Run the monitored device at a known rate and record the channel value displayed,
in engineering units.
c. Divide the value displayed by the rate at which the device is running to obtain the
number of pulses per unit for the channel.
For example: If the device is running at a rate of 100 and the
channel value displayed is 200, then the CALIBRATION
RATE is two pulses per unit.

d. Type-in the calculated value from Step c for CALIBRATION RATE and press
ENTER.
5. To set the DEBOUNCE RATE, highlight DEBOUNCE, enter a new value,
and press ENTER. (Figure 4-21)

NOTE
The DEBOUNCE function corrects for inadvertent counts produced by
sensors which are exposed to bouncing signals. For example; a pump
stroke switch when activated may spring back and tend to slightly bounce
after the stroke. This bouncing action could cause a false stroke count.
DEBOUNCE corrects this action.

5-2-1 Active Indicators


Active fields are those whose data values are used to calculate the value of a derived field.
For example, if MUD PIT 1, MUD PIT 2 and MUD PIT 3 are the only active mud pits,
then the value displayed in the TOTAL ACTIVE VOLUME field represents the volume in
pits 1, 2 and 3 only, even if additional mud pits are present.
The display panel identifies active fields in one of two ways:
• A dash is displayed in the field. In the example below, only tanks 1, 2, 3
and 4 are active.
• The entire field lights up. In the example below, only PUMP 1 is active.

5-4-6 Counter A/Counter B


COUNTER A and COUNTER B (Figure 5-8) are used during drilling to continuously
monitor pump strokes. The value displayed in the COUNTER A field represents the total
number of strokes made by the pump(s) designated as “active” in the COUNTER A indi-
cator field. Likewise, the value displayed for COUNTER B represents the total number of
strokes made by the pump(s) designated as “active” in the COUNTER B indicator field.
During tripping, these counters are used to monitor the number of pump strokes required
to fill all or a part of the hole or to perform a particular task. They do this by counting
strokes only while the RETURN FLOW is less than 3% (i.e., RETURNS indicator is on).

5-4-6-1 Function Codes 1 and 2: Set Zero

Enter these codes to zero the number of strokes counted by Counters A and B,
respectively. When either code is entered, the corresponding counter is zeroed
and then starts counting. Refer to Paragraph 5-3-1 to zero a field.

5-4-6-2 Function Codes 10 and 20: Preset

Enter these codes to specify a starting number of strokes for Counters A and B,
respectively; subsequent strokes will be added to this value. Refer to Paragraph
5-3-2 to preset (change) the field value.

5-4-6-3 Function codes 15 and 25: Set Counter Alarm

Enter these codes to specify the maximum number of strokes allowed for the
pump(s) being monitored by Counter A and Counter B, respectively. If the num-
ber of strokes reaches this value, the COUNTER field flashes and the alarm horn
sounds. Refer to Paragraph 5-3-3 to set the alarm value.

5-4-6-4 Function Codes 11, 12, 13, 21, 22, 23: Pump 1, 2, 3

Enter codes 11, 12, or 13 to change the “active” status of pumps 1, 2, or 3 for
COUNTER A. Likewise, enter codes 21, 22, or 23 to change the “active” status
of pumps 1, 2, or 3 for COUNTER B. The strokes of active pumps are included
in the associated COUNTER field. For example, if COUNTER B is currently
counting strokes for pump 2 and function code 22 is entered, COUNTER B will
stop counting strokes for pump 2 and the PUMP 2 indicator field will darken.
Refer to Paragraph 5-3-4-1 to change the “active” status of pumps.

6-1 INTRODUCTION
This chapter contains periodic inspection procedures for MUDWATCH devices and sensors, a
troubleshooting table and list of initialization codes for the MUDWATCH system. For parts lists
and illustrations depicting component locations, refer to Chapter 7 or to the related device manual.

6-2 PERIODIC INSPECTION OF MUDWATCH DEVICES


Perform the following checks weekly. Always complete these checks before performing more
extensive repairs.
• Verify that primary power is supplied to all units and that it is the power required
by the unit (Table 2-1).
• Check for loose, crushed, frayed, cut or otherwise damaged cables.
• Check wiring connections for loose or broken leads.
• Ensure that all ground connections are secure and free of corrosion.
• Ensure all component mounting bolts are securely fastened.
• Verify that all components are properly interconnected and seated in their mating
connector or socket.
• Check all enclosures for moisture ingression; correct as needed.

6-3 PERIODIC INSPECTION OF MUDWATCH SENSORS


Perform the following sensor checks as recommended.
• Ensure that all strain reliefs are secure and that all strain relief connections are not
stressed.
• For mud flow sensors, periodically perform the following:
- Flush out the flow pipe to prevent mud build-up, as this can cause sensor
malfunction or result in incorrect readouts.
- Verify that the paddle arm swings full span under no-flow conditions. If it
does not, remove flow sensor from base and flush out all lodged-in cut-
tings or other obstructions.
• For pit level sensors, perform the following:
- Check for caking or build-up of debris that might interfere with move-
ment of the float up and down the sensor tube.
- Every two years, disassemble the unit and inspect the sealing O-rings for
deterioration. For sensor P/N H10924A-series, also inspect the gearbox
assembly, toothed drive belt and housing tube for corrosion and wear.

6-4-5 VIP Workstation Communications Board


The DCM communications board is shown in Figure 6-5. This board contains three DIP
switches, which should be set as follows:
• SW1 - position 2 is ON (closed) and all other positions are
OFF (open). This selects the IRQ to the host PC
from the 68HC11 processor as 5.
• SW2 - positions 1 through 6 are OFF (open). This allows
the VIP Workstation device I.D. to be set and/or
changed using the Configuration/Calibration soft-
ware (Chapter 4).
- position 7 is OFF (open) and position 8 is ON
(closed). This sets the baud rate to the default net-
work baud rate of 42.8K.

NOTE
Baud rate must be the same for all network devices.

• SW3 - positions 3, 6, 7 and 8 are ON (closed) and all other


positions are OFF (open). This sets the dual port
RAM address space and interrupt request from the
host PC to the 68HC11 processor.

6-5 INIT CODES


During MUDWATCH system initialization, one of six initialization codes (INIT codes) may be
displayed in the display panel KEYBOARD DATA field. These codes inform the operator of SIF
initialization conditions and are typically displayed for 2-5 seconds. Table 6-7 summarizes each
INIT code. The T-POT communications LED is the red LED on the SIF PC board labeled D1.

CAUTION
If any INIT code is displayed for longer than ten seconds, reset the SIF
board by pressing push button switch S1.

NOTE
Always check for faulty wiring and power before replacing the SIF board.

ILLUSTRATED PARTS BREAKDOWN

7-1 INTRODUCTION
This chapter contains an Illustrated Parts Breakdown (IPB) and recommended spare parts inven-
tory for MUDWATCH. The IPB consists of component illustrations and accompanying parts lists.
IPBs of the DAQ, pit level sensor P/N H10924A-series and both mud flow sensors are presented in
their respective manuals. Features of the IPB are described below.

7-2 ILLUSTRATIONS
On the illustrations, stand-alone parts and assemblies are assigned index numbers. If an assembly
is detailed in a separate figure, its index number is circled.

7-3 PARTS LIST


Parts list contents are described in the following paragraphs.

7-3-1 Figure & Index Number


This column lists the figure and index number of each illustrated item.

7-3-2 Part Number


This column lists the M/D Totco part number of each item.

7-3-3 Description
This column contains the name and description of each item. If an assembly may be disas-
sembled in the field, its component part descriptions are indented to the right one period
( .) from its description.

7-3-4 Units Per Assembly


This column lists the number of items required for one next higher assembly (NHA).

7-3-5 Use On Code


This column is used only when the illustrated assembly has more than one configuration.
Each configuration is assigned a Use On Code (A, B, etc.) and, thereafter, only its constit-
uent parts are assigned the same Use On Code. For example, in the parts list for Figure 7-
1, a MUDWATCH system containing a DAQ with internal barriers is assigned a Use On
Code of “A”, whereas a system containing a barrierless DAQ is assigned a Use On Code
of “B”. Thereafter, all MUDWATCH components that are used only in systems containing
a DAQ with internal barriers (for example, the junction box) are assigned a Use On Code
of “A”; components used only in systems containing a barrierless DAQ (for example, the
sensor barrier box) are assigned a Use On Code of “B”; and components used in both sys-
tems are assigned a Use On Code of "A, B".

APPENDIX A
SHIELDED CABLE GUIDELINES

A-1 INTRODUCTION
This appendix provides guidelines for connecting sensor signal cables.

A-2 GUIDELINES FOR PREVENTING CABLE DAMAGE


Observe the following practices when routing sensor signal cables.
• Route cables so that they are out of walkways and vehicle traffic and are not
exposed to sharp corners that could wear through insulation.
• Plan signal cable runs to avoid wet areas and close proximity to power cables.
• Use nylon (land rig) or stainless steel (offshore rig) tie wraps to dress, secure and
support cables.
• Protect splices from moisture and excessive strain.

A-3 ELECTRICAL INTERFACE


Use shielded cable whenever signal cables must be run in cable trays or otherwise located next to
electrical power cables. This prevents induced noise from causing erratic sensor channel values.

A-4 SHIELDED CABLE SPLICING


Sensor cables must typically be spliced in the field. Figure A-1 shows the recommended method of
using butt splices to join two pieces of shielded cable or a length of shielded cable and a shielded
cable pigtail assembly.

WARNING

Plan each rig-up so that splices are not located in hazardous areas.

Follow the guidelines below when splicing shielded cable:


• When joining two cables, cut individual conductors (Figure A-1).
• Stagger butt splices along length of cable splice.
• Observe color code when cutting and splicing conductors.
• Use a crimping tool and apply enough pressure on each butt splice connector to
ensure a good compression connection between conductor and connector.
• Always seal and protect each splice with a strip of mastic tape that extends up the
cable about one inch past both sides of splice and wrap mastic tape securely with
black electrical tape.

SHIELDED CABLE GUIDELINES Manual 60-30

A-5 CONNECTING TWO DEVICES WITH SHIELDED CABLE


Follow the guidelines below when connecting two devices with shielded cable.
• Connect shield to ground at only one end of cable. When connecting a DAQ and
sensor, connect shield to ground only at DAQ end.

CAUTION
If the shield is connected to ground at both ends of the cable, the shield will
attract electrical interference, rather than shield against it.

• When using butt splice connectors to fabricate a length of shielded cable, splice
cable to shield only in pigtail connected to DAQ. At other end of cable, cut off
shield even with cable insulation; do not connect shield to any other shield or
device.

CONVERSION DATA

B-1 INTRODUCTION
This chapter contains the following conversion information:
• Methods for converting temperature from degrees Fahrenheit (oF) to degrees Cen-
tigrade (oC) and vice versa
• Conversion factors for commonly used units

B-2 TEMPERATURE CONVERSIONS


To convert from degrees Fahrenheit (oF) to degrees Centigrade (oC), subtract 32 from the degrees
Fahrenheit, then multiply by 0.556, as shown below:
oC = [ oF - M32 ] x 0.556

To convert from degrees Centigrade (oC) to degrees Fahrenheit (oF), multiply the degrees Centi-
grade by 1.7985, then add 32, as shown below:
o
F = [ oC x 1.8 ] + 32

B-3 CONVERSION FACTORS


Conversion factors for commonly used units are presented in Table B-1.

This appendix contains instrument block diagram drawings for the five most common
MUDWATCH configurations. Use these drawings to document a MUDWATCH system.

C-2 HOW TO DOCUMENT A SYSTEM


To document a system, combine the first three general information and schedule sheets with the
appropriate block and interconnect drawing sheets. Then edit the drawings as needed to correctly
represent the system (i.e., mark out inapplicable equipment, etc.). Finally, copy the drawings and
place them in the “DRAWINGS” section of the supplied binder.
