Ray-Trac™ is an Australian invented and internationally patented RFID data writing, capture and storage system. It is exclusive to Westernex and provides total sample control, reduces labour, eliminates all errors and gives the best chain of custody for samples.
The Ray-Trac™ system replaces conventionally numbered or bar coded bags with microchip tags that are readable and writable with any drill data you want as well as traceable anywhere in the sampling chain by radio wave scanners.
As well as this the ‘smart’ scanners autonomously enforce company drilling and material handling rules thereby decreasing operator error and increasing safety. Benefits include; save drilling and sampling costs, increase your sampling system efficiency, track your samples live, increase safety.
In a time of industry cost consciousness and when new technologies can assist then it’s time for RayTrac™.
Radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology allows you to record and track uniquely identified bags at each point in the sample chain between the rig and the lab. Unlike bar-codes, it works through mud, water and other objects. Also unlike bar-codes, it works instantly and effortlessly, reducing the time to track and handle samples and freeing your field staff to do more productive tasks.
The RayTrac™ RFID sampling system is built for the drilling environment and can take a beating which has been proven in the harshest field environments time and time again.
