The operator can program the tool (on surface) for the parameters needed for a specific well. Some programmable features include:

  1. Data rate
  2. Order in which data is sent to surface
  3. Length of time in which sensors are sampled for acquiring data.
  4. Angle at which tool changes from magnetic updates to gravitational updates
  5. Type of data sent to surface (raw or calculated)
  6. Threshold at which the magnetic anomaly or vibration flag is set
  7. Which integrity checks are sent to surface after transmission of data
  8. Resolution of rapid tool-face updates (normally 2.0 degree every 12 seconds)
  9. Threshold for rotary mode. Tool-faces are not sent during rotary mode to conserve power consumption
