The Cyclops uses Geomagnetic Sensing to read the Earth’s magnetic field and then look for changes in the field to indicate the arrival of a plunger. This single eye allows you to see what is happening inside the well.
The Cyclops by default will take magnetic readings and apply a filter to remove the high frequency noise. These filtered readings are then both incorporated into the long term baseline and used to determine whether the plunger has arrived.
Once the signal has exceeded the baseline by at least the threshold (defined by the sensitivity switch), the plunger is considered arrived.
SWITCH CLOSURE AND HOLD
Once the Cyclops has detected the arrival, it sets and holds the output switch.
The output switch is held for at least 5 seconds. The Output Hold Timer is continuously reset while the plunger continues to move in front of the plunger leading to a single arrival indication even when the plunger is bouncing around. Once the Output Hold Timer expires, the switch is opened.
