The WinDART module provides a direct, central collection point for real-time drilling data at the rig, including MWD, LWD, drilling instrumentation and mudlogging. WITS (Wellsite Information Transfer Specification) Level 0 is used to collect standard or custom data records across a network using TCP/IP or via the traditional point to point RS-232 serial interface.
Data can be processed and stored over depth, lagged depth and time based intervals. The stored data is instantly available for display and distribution to all connected users and Gravitas applications. Thus the process of collecting data at the well-site is simplified and time is saved. For example, if Winlog for Gravitas references a table being written by WinDART it will be informed of the new data and this will be shown on the chart with no user interaction.
