As the system records and controls above 30 sets of parameters, the computer requires a high computing performance. Moreover, the operating equipment installed in an oil well should be able to withstand the strong electromagnetic interference, noise, vibration, and even unstable electricity supply and other harsh conditions. Therefore, Advantech offered the IPPC-9151G all-in-one industrial panel PC. With its wide operating temperature and humidity range, rugged features and Pentium 4 processor, it provides excellent performance and meets the demands of the customer. In addition, the mudlogger system also employs a distributed control architecture. Therefore, it adopted Advantech’s EKI-2528 Ethernet switch for uploading up a dozen kinds of data on an onsite PLC through a PPC-9151G to the workstation.
Advantech indicated that with China's economic growth and surging oil and gas demand as the catalysts the oil and gas well industry has been developing rapidly. Advantech high-performance and rugged solutions not only improve monitoring efficiency but also reduce maintenance difficulty, and oil and gas well management becomes more efficient with less time and effort.
