The world’s first north seeking solid state GYRO has arrived. Designed for driller operation.

The Champ Gyro™ is an innovative North Seeking solid state gyro system that allows users to take high accuracy singleshot, multishot or orientation measurements at the push of a button.

It’s tough, reliable, requires no starting azimuth and is ready to survey within minutes.

The Champ Gyro offers the ultimate in simplicity, performance and productivity.

At surface the user initialises the Champ Gyro via tablet. Downhole, singleshot or multishot measurements are taken at desired depths. On return to surface, data is downloaded via highspeed wireless communication and is immediately accessible without any need for post processing or interpretation.

Run the Champ Gyro on wireline or in the Champ OSA™ (Overshot Assembly) which allows a survey to be taken each time you pull core, thus greatly reducing rig downtime associated with conventional surveys.

The Champ Gyro has a robust design capable of performing surveys for both diamond and RC holes in both surface andunderground environments.

Housed in 36mm (1.41”) running gear the Champ Gyro measures 1.64 meters (5.38ft) long and weighs less than 7kg (15.43 lbs).

Battery modules have a 15 hour life and with two supplied as standard you will never run short on power.
