Developed to be user friendly and efficient, DeviCore BBT employs premium sensor technology with integrated running gear, where communication between each unit and the supplied Android device is completely wireless. This enables the operator to initiate, operate and download without opening a single thread.

The full operation itself follows a clear step-by-step procedure through the modern and intuitive DeviCore Android application, and in addition to this DeviCore BBT units can be started and downloaded while the alternate unit is down in the hole, working in with the drilling cycle.

The internal sensors are also interchangeable across the entire range of running gear sizes (A to P), offering a cost-effective solution for multi-size drilling programs.

Innovative, efficient, reliable and user friendly. That is why DeviCore BBT is a leading core orientation system.

Frequently asked questions about DeviCore BBT

Does the DeviCore system record inclination?

Yes, the DeviCore records inclination, orientation, and temperature.

See answer

What do I do when my DeviCore will not wake up/start?

Replace batteries, check for water or moisture inside running gear. See if the tool comes up in the Bluetooth overview after waking it up with the magnet, even though it does not blink. If nothing works, contact devico support.

What is the Brilliant Blue Technology (BBT) activation system and how does it work?

BBT is our wireless communication system. It is a Bluetooth signal that is sent from the internal logging tool, through the pressure barrel and to the handheld unit. This replaces the conventional method of cables or having to open the assembly to achieve connect and communication
