Implementing WITSML with a PLC

Implementing WITSML with a PLC

Implementing WITSML with a PLC

We have a customer in the oil and gas business that wants us to provide our equipment with
“WITSML Communications Protocol via RJ-45 port" I did some research to determine that WITSML is an XML based protocol and assume that RJ45 port is an Ethernet port. Does anyone have experience implementing WITSML with a PLC? What exactly is involved?

RE: Implementing WITSML with a PLC

IRStuff. Thanks for the response. I will check out the standard from Energetics. In the meantime, I'm hoping to get some guidance from someone with practical experience with the WITSML protocol being used to transfer data generated by a PLC via it's Modbus port.

RE: Implementing WITSML with a PLC

Good idea. I've reposted to the Petroleum Engineering General Discussion Forum.
