The MiniSting is a low cost resistivity & IP meter especially designed for small resistivity jobs like electrical grounding-grid testing, soil resistivity test using the Wenner four electrode method, survey for corrosion control, electrical surveys with the four electrode method (vertical electrical sounding or profiling). This instrument is also recommended for educational purposes.
The MiniSting is pre-programmed for Wenner, Schlumberger, dipole-dipole, pole-dipole, pole-pole, mise-a-la-masse, SP, resistance and azimuthal surveys in the manual measurement mode.
The MiniSting can also be used with the Swift automatic smart electrode system or with Switch boxes (switching 28, 56, 84 or 98 electrodes) and passive electrodes or our down hole electrode cables. The MiniSting/Swift can perform automatic surveys with any electrode array and can also also perform surveys controlled by a computer.
Recorded data is saved in the internal memory and at a convenient time downloaded to a computer for further processing. Our utility sofware 'the Administrator' is included with the MiniSting as well as a serial download cable. The Administrator software is used for data down-load and command file up-load.
Resistivity imaging data and bore hole to bore hole data can be read directly by our EarthImager software to produce brilliant tomographic images in color.
The MiniSting has a built in re-chargeable NiMH battery with power sufficient for one day of manual surveying. The instrument is delivered with a battery charger. During automatic surveys when the instrument uses a lot of power, it is normally powered by an external 12 V battery.
