PURPOSE-BUILT technology for a safe operating environment:

Lightning Risk Mitigation – The threat of injury or damage from lightning activity is very real in most survey environments, and this risk is augmented when data acquisition requires the deployment of conductive cabling and wire across survey areas. Dias has implemented effective procedures to mitigate this risk, and has developed unique patented technology which is a critical component of these procedures.

Our lightning shunt technology, DIAS-LS, is proven effective in reducing or eliminating the propagation of lightning energy along acquisition cables or wires. This benefit extends beyond the protection of our personnel to our operational partners, clients, and even our equipment.

Another benefit of this technology is that because the lightning shunts provide protection to the geophysical equipment as well, there is less risk of down time due to equipment damage. As a result of this risk mitigation, our field teams typically spend less overall time on acquisition programs.

Electrocution Risk Mitigation – Our field teams operate high power systems in which energy is transmitted over long distances. Dias’ risk mitigation is designed to protect the entire team by supplying timely, accurate information and control to each team member who may be at risk. Our current lock-out technology, DIAS-CL, places relevant and timely information into the hands of the team members and provides lock-out control to all relevant team members.
