DEAL™ and Smart Modules – the key to drilling automation
MHWirth’s drilling system platform enables digitization, increased automation and integration of MHWirth and third party software products and services.
DEAL™ by MHWirth is a platform that enables the installation of performance enhancing software modules called Smart Modules. Smart Modules communicate with the drilling equipment controllers to optimize the operations required to drill a well. The platform is an open interface that enables a reliable, simple and effective gateway to the MHWirth drilling equipment. With DEAL™ installed, adding of select Smart Modules is done with reduced downtime and risk.
DEAL™ acts as a layer between the equipment PLCs and Smart Modules. Equipment PLCs control the drilling equipment. Smart modules are modules that are added to enhance the control system of the rig. For example, a module that enables automated tripping.
DEAL™ enables simple installation of new Smart Modules through a defined interface, not requiring changes to the machine. DEAL™ removes the need for new connections to all the machines when introducing new Smart Modules.
