Technical information of some of the perforating systems offered by Archer can be obtained from the following technical data sheets.

Slickline Perforating Trigger

The Electronic Firing Head (EFH) is a high integrity memory based perforating trigger suitable for any remote explosive or non-explosive operation where the operator requires a reduction in running costs while maintaining the highest possible degree of safety and control for a memory based tool.

The EFH is dualmicroprocessor controlled ensuring no single microprocessor failure can activate the output. The microprocessors continually perform status and operational integrity checks of the other processors for additional safety.

The EFH can be used to perforate, plug and cut tubing, liner or casing and can be run on Slickline, e‐line, coil tubing and is suitable for TCP or DST operations.
