Paper Abstract

In this paper we present a multi-point magnetic inclinometer which is of great value to oil well drilling. When directionfixed drilling is finished, the spatial position of the well must be measured and compared with the design. By using a compass type sensor, the apparatus detects the principal parameters indicating the spatial position of the well axis, inclination and azimuth angles. The angles shown by the angle-measuring system are recorded through photography method. Based on the direction-fixed properties of both the compass and the weight force, design of the sensing part is introduced. The electronic control of the photographic and film feeding system is also described based on the predetermined program.
