Abstract : An electronic cyclometer for a cable pulley is described. The readings are displayed on remote digital counters. During coring at 3600 m the readings before lowering and after recovery have never varied by more than 3 m. One can rely on a relative value of the counter indication within 2 m. The cyclometer has been working for two years without failure. (Author)
