Mezintel Depth Tracker streams out ASCII data every 4 seconds via a 9-pin RS-232 male serial port. This data is in WITS format.
WITS (Wellsite Information Transfer Specification) is a 20 year old worldwide oil and gas industry standard that specifies how to format text-based (ASCII) drilling data for transmission between two devices connected by serial ports (RS-232) or by an Ethernet link.
One of our customers wanted larger indicators on the Mezintel Depth Tracker so that MWD operators can see depth status from 15 feet away.
So, we added an alternative view that enlarges the block height, bit depth, ROP, hook load, hole depth, and slips status.
Simply tap on the Samples button to use this enlarged view.
In order to successfully run a Mezintel program, you must run it as administrator. Mezintel software that is not running as administrator will encounter errors as some point of being used.
If the UAC dialog does not pop up when you try to run a Mezintel program, then it is not set to run as administrator.
