VIP 10000

10 KW Power IP/Resistivity Transmitter

VIP 10000

Features:

  • 3000V output voltage
  • 20A output current
  • Standard Motor Generator
General:

The VIP family of transmitters is now available in a 10000 watt version. The VIP 10000 is a power current regulated Time and Frequency Domain electrical transmitter.

VIP 10000 Major Benefits:

The VIP 10000 will generate up to 3000 volts which makes it very convenient for IP surveys in high resistivity areas and for very deep resistivity soundings.

Microprocessor controlled for case of operation and protection against misuse, all injection parameters (current, voltages,...) are controlled. The VIP 10000 can also be operated through its remote control port (RS-232).

The VIP 10000 can either be operated with a three phase, 45 to 800 Hz motor generator for maximum power supply or with a standard 220 V single phase motor generator for lower output power. This flexibility allows the operator to use a standard motor generator when maximum power is required or lighter motor generator that is easily available in most geographical areas when the output power required is lower.

High Output:

In medium and high resistivity areas, the amount of current driven into the ground depends on the maximum output voltage provided by the transmitter, in addition in low resistivity areas, it is also dependent on the maximum output power.

The VIP 10000 features the following major benefits:

  • High output voltage: 3000V
  • High output power: 10kW
  • High output current: 20A
Standard Motor Generator Supply:

In surveys requiring large power, a key practical problem is the local availability of a motor generator. Being powered by a standard motor generator, the VIP 10000 offers the highest flexibility in its class. Its power input requirements are:

  • 180 to 250V voltage for maximum output power
  • 45 to 800 Hz frequency
  • Three-phases for maximum output power
  • One phase for lower output power
  • Motor generator or power line supply
The operation of the VIP 10000 with such a large range of power sources drastically reduces the transportation and maintenance problems inherent to field survey constraints.

Full Microprocessor Controlled:

Full Microprocessor control of the VIP 10000 allows the following basic benefits:

  • Ease of use through interactive menus
  • User friendly selection of the current value
  • Continuous display of output current, voltage, power, ground resistance values
  • Display of intelligent messages and warnings in case of a problem: overload, short circuit, input under or overvoltage.
The VIP 10000 is designed for ease of operation. It has a much simplified front panel: current, dipole and frequency (in the frequency domain), settings are the only parameters to be selected by the operator. All other functions, like voltage range setting, are fully automated.

Programming functions are also available, either through the front panel, with a suitable key, or from an external computer. These functions are used to select the parameters and options that are not normally changed during a survey: operating mode, time or frequency domain, cycle time, frequencies, etc.

Intelligent Regulation:

The VIP 10000 internal microprocessor is capable of excellent current regulation at almost any load. Current is operator selectable in preprogrammed steps from 20mA to 20 amperes. Intelligent current adjustment algorithms are always in operation. For example, the contact resistance will occasionally be too high for the VIP 10000 to provide the requested current setting. In such cases, the VIP 10000 will display a warning message and will set the current to the maximum value allowable under that combination of current setting and contact resistance. Some reserved current capacity will always be kept to insure that the current stays constant during the measurements, whatever the contact resistance fluctuations.

Remote Control:

The VIP 10000 is provided with a remote control port. By using radio modems it can be operated from a remote location.

The VIP 10000 can also be linked to an intelligent receiver such as the ELREC 6 or the ELREC 10, or to a computer for the automatic recording of current settings. Finally, synchronization with a receiver or system is also possible on both directions (i.e. Rx to Tx or Tx to Rx).

Complete Display:

Large backlighted LCD alphanumeric display is provided for the simultaneous indication of all output parameters. Output current, output voltage, contact resistance and output power are continuously displayed.

Heavy Duty Construction:

Very high quality connectors, and heavy duty industrial components are used throughout. The VIP 10000 is shock resistant and weatherproof for a higher reliability.

Specifications:

  • Output Power: 10000VA
  • Output Voltage: 3000V maximum, automatic voltage range selection
  • Output Current: 20 amperes maximum, current regulated

VIP 3000/VIP 4000

IP AND RESISTIVITY ADVANCED TRANSMITTER

VIP 3000/VIP 4000

Features:

  • 3000V output voltage
  • Full microprocessor control
  • Ease-of-use
  • Standard motor generator
General:

The VIP family of transmitters is now available in either a 3000 or 4000 watt version. Both VIP Systems are power current regulated Time Domain and Frequency Domain electrical transmitters.

VIP 3000/VIP 4000 Major Benefits:

Light in weight and provided with a high voltage (3000V) output, the VIP 3000/VIP 4000 are particularly convenient for IP surveys in high resistivity rugged areas and for deep resistivity soundings.

Microprocessor controlled for ease of operation and protection against misuse, all injection parameters (current, voltages, ...) are controlled. The VIP 3000/VIP 4000 can also be operated through its remote control port (RS232).

The VIP 3000/VIP 4000 eight output dipoles provide for higher productivity in the field. Powered from a standard 220V single phase motor generator, the VIP 3000/VIP 4000 eliminate the maintenance and supply problems associated with custom power sources. It also reduces the costs and problems of shipping motor generators over long distances, namely by plane.

High Outputs:

The VIP 3000/VIP 4000 will generate up to 3000 volts for work in high resistivity areas and up to 5 amperes at 600 volts (VIP 3000) / 800 volts (VIP 4000) for low resistivity regions.

With its weight of only 16kg, the VIP 3000/VIP 4000 are the lightest 3000W/4000W units on the market.

Heavy Duty Construction:

Very high quality connectors, and heavy duty industrial components are used throughout. The VIP3000/VIP 4000 are shock resistant and weatherproof, for a higher reliability.

Fully Automated:

The VIP 3000/VIP 4000 are designed for ease of operation. They have a much simplified front panel: current, dipole and frequency (in the frequency domain) settings are the only parameters to be selected by the operator. All the other functions, like voltage range setting, are fully automated.

Programmable:

Programming functions are also available, either through the front panel, with a suitable key, or from an external computer terminal. These functions are used to select the parameters and options that are not normally changed during a survey: operating mode, time or frequency domain, cycle time, frequencies, etc.

This approach reduces front panel cluttering and drastically reduces the possibility of operator mistake. Instrument reliability is also increased. For example, it is not possible to switch dipoles when transmitting. This eliminates the possibility of burning out the selector switch or the output circuitry.

Error Messages:

Intelligent messages and warnings are displayed in case of problem or malfunction. Furthermore, the permanent storage of all the parameters related to the operation of the unit make easier the remote identification of a trouble by the manufacturer for quicker instrument servicing.

Complete Display:

A large backlighted LCD alphanumeric display is provided for the simultaneous indication of all output parameters. Output current, output voltage, contact resistance and output power are continuously displayed.

Intelligent Regulation:

The VIP 3000/VIP 4000 internal microprocessor is capable of excellent current regulation in almost any load.

Current is operator selectable in preprogrammed steps from 50mA to 5 amperes. Intelligent current adjustment algorithms are always in operation. For example, the contact resistance will occasionally be too high for the VIP 3000/VIP 4000 to provide the requested current setting. In such cases, the VIP 3000/VIP 4000 will display a warning message and will set the current to the maximum value allowable under that combination of current setting and contact resistance. Some reserve current capacity will always be kept to insure that the current stays constant during the measurements, whatever the contact resistance fluctuations.
