For the first time in 2005, halliburton introduced the Getac strong laptop to its customers. Before working with Getac, repair and maintain the halliburton manager John Wilkins and technical experts, Christopher Pike, who has been struggling to find a device, the device not only need to be able to install industry-specific software program, also must be able to ensure that its customers in bad weather conditions and oil rig site environment normal work. Halliburton first made some very specific requests to Getac. They've used the mainstream laptops, and now they want a new laptop can help them save time and budget, and to ensure that its customers to the equipment needed to get the job.
Getac laptops are used for the exploration of the scene, to record and analyze data, such as: the depth of borehole inclination, azimuth, and the surface of the bit knife, and interconnect with other equipment, in order to realize data sharing. These tasks require very specific physical device attributes and, more importantly, compatible software for their professional applications. One of the problems with mainstream laptops and our former choice of laptop vendors is that the computers we choose never take longer to use.”The specs have changed over the months and are not tailored to our specific requirements," Wilkins said. Getac works closely with halliburton to ensure that the computer is fully in line with halliburton's specific requirements.“The staff of Getac visited us several times and worked with us to determine the required specifications and customized our laptops specifically for our specific needs. ”Halliburton now buys two custom-made laptops, GetacA790 and M230, and the computer's hard disk is partitioned for its software programs.
Getac laptops - the most suitable solution halliburton Application in an oil rig constitutes a major challenge to the notebook computer, therefore, and strong technical professional company cooperation is a very wise choice."The working environment of our laptop is often very bad. There are dust and aerosols in the air, and if there is no dust design, they are easy to attach to these devices," Wilkins said. “The Getac laptop uses a seal cap and door cover to avoid damage to the site and prevent damage caused by an accidental fall. One of the main reasons we chose the Getac laptop is that it is a full-strength feature for standard configuration. The A790 and M230 notebooks meet the MIL - STD 810F and IP54 standard. During the design and manufacturing process, the influence of environmental factors on materials during the lifetime of the whole computer is considered. "You have to face some unexpected circumstances while working on the site, and, of course, the inevitable weather conditions. The Getac laptop we use can work in all kinds of weather conditions.
“If it rains heavily, we don't have to stay out of the rain," Wilkins said. "if the sun is strong, we can still see the laptop screen because of Getac's glare screen technology." In halliburton's original request, it was important that the laptop needed to be able to send data to other devices in use. Serial port technology is the main communication mode between these devices, but the connection between serial ports is difficult to achieve. Many mainstream devices no longer use serial ports, but it's replacing technology like USB.
Wilkins added: "serial technology is our most urgent need to avoid a lot of equipment that we use every day. The serial port is, of course, the important reason we decided to select the Getac laptop." "In the past, it was very difficult to buy equipment that would meet all the needs of our customers, but since working with Getac, all requirements have been met." Wilkins said.
