In deep or shallow water, a revolutionary advancement in OBN acquisition.

Clarity meets flexibility.

With ZXPLR technology, Magseis Fairfield simplifies node management, maintenance and inventory even further. This hybrid system is suitable for both deep and shallow water via either passive-rope or ROV deployment. In deepwater applications, High-Speed Loader (HSL) capacity is increased, employing mid-water docking and active heave controls on HSL and ROV systems. In shallow-water operations, hands-free rope connection/disconnection and automated retrieval/deployment offer greater safety and efficiency.

Innovating economics, too.

Emerging imaging technologies demand densely sampled, longer offset, full-azimuth data. ZXPLR delivers it, more economically than ever, with redesigned deployment methods that allow for exploration-scale surveys in any depth.

Onboard data QC is also automated, enabling processors to quickly and consistently verify node data, while simplifying downstream processing and node performance tracking.
