Plunger Arrival Sensor

Cyclops sensor

Cyclops is not your average plunger arrival sensor. Utilizing modern Geomagnetic Sensing Technology™, market-leading Cyclops is the most advanced and reliable sensor available.

Within the rugged enclosure lies a geomagnetic “eye” and a tiny yet powerful microprocessor. When powered, Cyclops is actively watching for a change in the earth’s magnetic field around it to signal plunger arrival. Constantly filtering out “background noise” from nearby equipment or environmental changes, Cyclops is able to consistently detect any type of plunger as it arrives at surface.

ETC’s innovative line of plunger sensors provide advantages that no other plunger sensors offer, such as the ability to adjust sensitivity, upgrade software, or troubleshoot problematic wells right at the well head.

Case Studies

Major producer in South Texas uses ALiEn2 to achieve 16,000% ROI

The ALiEn2 plunger controller replaced a competitive controller on a plunger lift well that was not meeting production expectations. Production was doubled within 12 days and the well has continued producing at the higher rate since.
