Product Overview

The WITS Level 0 Active driver is used for the transfer wellsite data from one computer system (such as a Measurement While Drilling [MRD] device) to HMI, SCADA, and OPC client applications. Exploration and production service and operating companies are able to monitor real-time data like compass direction, borehole pressure, temperature, vibration, shock, torque, and more.

Added a new state to ensure that request timeout error messages are only logged once between the acquisition of data.



This new serial driver supports Wellsite Information Transfer Specification (WITS) Level 0, which is used primarily in Oil & Gas applications. It is an ""active"" driver that receives data from devices configured to send updates when solicited (polled) from the driver.
