collar locator

1. n. [Well Completions]
A downhole tool or logging device used to detect and track (log) casing or tubing collars across a zone of interest, typically for correlation purposes. Most collar locators detect the magnetic anomaly created by the mass of the steel collar and transmit a signal to surface-display and depth correlation equipment.
