Matrikon announces the release of its new OPC server for Well Site Information Transfer Specification (WITS).
WITS provides open data connectivity to well site data systems using WITS-compliant devices. Areas where WITS-based data is common at a well site include geology, drilling, cementing, drill stem testing, and electronic data recorders (EDRs) that capture logging while drilling (LWD) and measurement while drilling (MWD) data.
Darek Kominek, marketing manager at MatrikonOPC explains that the new OPC server for WITS enables end users to gain direct access to their WITS data via any OPC-enabled application, making it easier to share and work with key data onsite and with the rest of the enterprise.
Feature highlights of the MatrikonOPC server for WITS include support for communications through TCP/IP, UDP and/or serial channels; simultaneous support for WITS Level 0 compliant active and passive devices; read and write access to available data points; and full compliance with OPC DA 1.0, 2.0a and 3.0 specification.
