Initial Startup Screen OEM DDCS™ Software User Manual

2 INITIAL START UP SCREEN

Figure 2-1 Initial Startup Screen

Figure 2-1 is the Initial Startup Screen. When the drillers chair is first powered up
and the internal computers are completely booted up, this is the screen the user
will see. From this screen, the user has several options which are described
below.

2.1 A. OEM POWER SYSTEMS (PUSH TO GO TO DRILLING


SCREEN).

Figure 2-2 OEM Button

When the OEM POWER SYSTEMS (PUSH TO GO TO DRILLING SCREEN)


button is pressed, the “DRILL SCREEN” is brought up.

Page 2-6 Issue (10/06)


OEM DDCS™ Software User Manual Initial Start Up Screen

2.2 B. CLEAN TOUCH SCREEN

Figure 2-3 Clean Touch Screen Button

When the “CLEAN TOUCH SCREEN” button is pressed, the “CLEAN


SCREEN” comes up. See the “CLEAN SCREEN” section for more information.

2.3 C. LOG IN

Figure 2-4 Log In Button

When the “LOG IN” button is pressed, it brings up the Log In window as shown
in Figure 2-5 which allows the user to log in at that time. Log in is not required to
proceed to the “DRILL SCREEN”; however the user will only have viewing
rights once in the “DRILL SCREEN”. If the user tries to access anything outside
the view only rights, the Log In window will once again pop up, prompting the
user to log in with the correct username and password. By logging in initially on
the “STARTUP SCREEN”, the user will avoid having to login at a later time
unless they try to open a screen or operation that their log in does not have access
to.

Figure 2-5 Log In Window

The Log In window prompts the user to enter in a user name and a password.
Next to each entry field is an onscreen keyboard button . When this is
pressed, it brings up the onscreen keyboard allowing the user to enter in both their
user name and their password respectively. Figure 2-6 shows the passwords
onscreen keyboard. If capital letters are needed the user can click on the “Shift”
radio button which will allow the next letter that is typed to be in capital. Once a
button is pressed, the keyboard will revert back to lowercase letters. When the
user is finished typing the entry in, they must press the “OK” button to accept the
entry.

By pressing the “EXIT APPLICATION” button, the user is requesting the


software to shut down. A warning message will display as shown in Figure 2-8
prompting them to be sure they want to close the Hi-Tech Application. If they
press the “YES” button, they will be taken to the Windows Desktop and the Hi
Tech Rig Application will be closed. If they press “NO”, they will be taken back
to the previous screen, in this case the “INITIAL START UP SCREEN”.

3 DRILL SCREEN

Figure 3-1 Drill Screen

Figure 3-1 is the “DRILL SCREEN” which will always be the first monitoring
screen the user comes to after the “INITIAL STARTUP SCREEN”. This screen
allows them to monitor and adjust various rig parameters. They can also set
multiple parameters for the auto driller as well as access other screens in the
DDCS via the “MENU” button. This section is broke up into sub sections for
each of the alphabetic tags shown in Figure 3-1.

Drill Screen OEM DDCS™ Software User Manual

3.1 A. DERRICK HEIGHT (FT)

Figure 3-2 Derrick Height Digital Display

This digital display shows how high, in feet (ft), the derrick is. This display is
view only. The value can only be edited from the “Tech Calibration Screen 1”.
Figure 3-2 shows 110 for the value which means that the Derrick stands 110 feet
high from the drill floor.

3.2 B. BLOCK POSITION (FT)

Figure 3-3 Block Position Digital Display

This digital display shows how high, in feet (ft), the block is. This number is
display only. The value, if incorrect must be calibrated from the “BLOCK POS
CAL SCREEN”. For further instructions on how to calibrate the block position
refer to the “BLOCK POS CAL SCREEN”. If Figure 3-3 had a value of 55.0,
then the block would be 55 feet up from the drill floor.

3.3 C. ENABLE AUTODRILL

Figure 3-4 ENABLE AUTODRILL Enabled and Disabled Buttons

The “ENABLE AUTODRILL” Button enables or disables the automatic driller.


It’s easy to identify when the automatic driller is enabled because, as shown in
Figure 3-4, the “ENABLE AUTODRILL” Button will be green. If it is disabled it
will be gray. To enable the auto drill, enter in the set point for ROP (Rate of
Penetration) using the “ROP SETPOINT” button. To drill by WOB (Weight on
Bit) enter in the set point for WOB using the “WOB SETPOINT” button. Press
the “ENABLE AUTODRILL” button while it is disabled (gray). Once the Draw
works joystick is moved in the down position (press up on the joystick), the
“ENABLE AUTODRILL” button will turn green to indicate that the auto driller is
enabled. When enabled, the automatic driller can drill by ROP or, if enabled,
WOB. When WOB drilling is enabled, which is indicated by the “ENABLE
WOB” button displayed in green, the automatic driller will try to achieve the ROP
which is indicated in the “ROP SETPOINT” until it reaches the number indicated
in the “WOB SETPOINT”. At this time the ROP will no longer be the automatic
drillers controlling factor as it will now focus on maintaining a bit weight below
the “WOB SETPOINT”. Once it has achieved a stable bit weight below the set
point, the auto driller will maintain a balance of achieving the fastest ROP up to
the ROP set point while staying under the WOB set point.

Figure 3-5 HOOK LOAD Digital Display

This digital display shows the current hook load expressed in thousands of pounds
(klbs). Figure 3-5, shows 500 displayed. This means that the current hook load is
500,000 pounds. This display is view only. This value can only be edited from the
“Tech Calibration Screen 2”.

3.5 E. ENABLE WOB

Figure 3-6 Enable WOB Enabled and Disabled Buttons

The “ENABLE WOB” button enables or disables whether the automatic driller
looks to WOB as a drilling parameter. It is easy to identify when the automatic
driller is referring to the WOB as a limit in its auto drilling operations because the
“ENABLE WOB” button will be green as shown in the right picture of Figure
3-6. When the function is disabled, the “ENABLE WOB” button will be gray, as
shown in the left picture of Figure 3-6. The auto driller will only take the ROP
limit into consideration when WOB is not enabled. When the button is enabled,
the auto driller still drills by the ROP, but will now limit its WOB to the “WOB
SETPOINT”. When the target weight on bit is reached, the WOB takes control of
the auto driller until the WOB drops below the set point. It’s common to see the
control of the auto driller jump between both ROP and WOB when the desired
ROP can only be reached by drilling at or above the WOB set point.
NOTE: The ENABLE WOB will not function unless the “ENABLE AUTODRILL”
Button on the “DRILL SCREEN” is enabled (green).

3.6 F. WOB (WEIGHT ON BIT)

Figure 3-7 WOB Digital Display

This digital display shows the current WOB expressed in thousands of pounds
(klbs). If Figure 3-7 had 10.0 in the display, this would indicate a bit weight of
10,000 pounds. It’s recommended that the bit weight be zeroed before tagging
bottom on each new connection by pressing the “ZERO WOB” button.
The best procedure for this is to:
1. Stop movement of the block within half a foot of tagging the bottom of the
hole. If already drilling, pick up so that the bit is no longer on bottom and then
quit moving the block.
2. Press the “ZERO WOB” button.

Issue (10/06) Page 3-11


Drill Screen OEM DDCS™ Software User Manual

3. Wait for the WOB digital display to read 0.0


4. Proceed with drilling operations.

Following these steps will insure that the bit weight is correct. Bit weight is
calculated by logging the value of the current hook load when the “ZERO WOB”
button is pressed. Once this number is logged, it subtracts it from the actual hook
load and displays the difference as your bit weight. This is why, when zeroing the
bit weight, the user wants to make sure that no weight is resting on the bit
otherwise a good reference for the hook load may not be obtained.

3.8 H. WOB SETPOINT

Figure 3-9 WOB SETPOINT Digital Display/Button

The “WOB SETPOINT” digital display shows the current WOB set point (limit)
for the auto driller in units of thousands of pounds (Klbs). When the “ENABLE
WOB” button is enabled (green) and the “ENABLE AUTODRILL” button is
enabled, the auto driller will insure that this set point is not surpassed. In other
words this is the max bit weight that the auto driller will use to attain/maintain its
ROP. Once this set point is reached or exceeded the main focus of the auto driller
is diverted away from achieving the ROP set points and directed towards getting
below the WOB set point. It is not uncommon for the auto driller’s control to
jump from the “ROP SET POINT” to the “WOB SET POINT”, especially with
the “ROP SET POINT” has a set point achieved at or above the “WOB SET
POINT”. This display also acts as a button which brings up a data entry menu so
that the user can enter in the set point. The display units are in thousands of
pounds so to enter in a set point of 50,000 pounds, the user would type in 50. It is
easy to tell which set points are in control because green lettering will appear on
the screen between the set point and the digital reading of the parameter that is
currently in control. The parameter in control will also be framed in a blue box.
Refer to Figure 3-25 on page 3-17 to see an example of a screen with ROP in
control of the auto driller.

3.18 R. ENCODERS

Figure 3-19 Encoders 1 2 malfunction 3 4 working

This section indicates which encoders are working correctly. If an encoder is


green, this indicates that the system sees the encoder as being calibrated and
functioning correctly. If an encoder is displayed in red, this indicates that the
encoder is either not communicating with the system, has a fault, or is out of
calibration.

3.19 S. CALIPER RELEASE PRESSURE (PSI)

Figure 3-20 Caliper Release Pressure Digital Display

The “CALIPER RELEASE PRESSURE” digital display shows the current


pressure supplied to the caliper release. The caliper release operates in a spring-
applied, pressure-released manner so that when pressure is lost the brake is
applied. In other words the pressure keeps the brakes released. Having a pressure
reading here will indicate that the caliper brake is released. This is also a safety
precaution so if the rig air pressure is lost, the brakes will be set.

3.20 T. Bar Graphs

Figure 3-21 Bar Graphs

The bar graphs display Drive # 1 Torque (DWA), Drive # 2 Torque (DWB), Aux
Brake Pressure, and Caliper Release Pressure in the form of bar graphs. The
Drive Torque bars are displayed in green and represent when the drives torque up
and begin to take the load from the brakes. The Aux Brake Pressure is displayed
in blue and peaks out at 120 PSI. The auxiliary brake is a pressure activated
brake. When pressure is shown on the bar graph, then the brake is set. No
pressure means that the brake is released. The Caliper Release Pressure
represents the pressure supplied to the calipers and will show solid green when
the calipers are released. This indicates that the calipers are disengaged and the
parking brake is on. Once the rig air goes below 105 psi the caliper release
pressure bar turns yellow. If the pressure drops below 95 psi, the bar turns red
and will set the brake immediately due to the fact that there is not enough air to
hold the calipers open and remain operational. Once this occurs, the joystick will
become inoperable. Below, in Figure 3-22, is a picture of the caliper release bar
along with the caliper release digital display to show the different colors and the
pressures they represent.

3.21 U. LOW STOP POINT

Figure 3-23 Low Stop Point

The “LOW STOP POINT” digital display button indicates the lowest point the
block can be lowered in units of feet. Figure 3-23 indicates a value of 20. This
means that when lowering the block it will not go lower than 20 feet. Pressing
this button opens a data entry menu in which the low stop point can be edited. If
the block calibration is incorrect, and the block needs to go lower than the “LOW
STOP POINT” or higher than the “HIGH STOP POINT”, the user can press the
“DRAWWORKS OVERRIDE” button on the left arm of the driller’s chair. This
will override the draw works stop points and will give 10 seconds of 5% throttle
to move past the stop points. If more time is needed, the button can be pressed
again for another 10 seconds of movement or held down until it reaches the
desired position.
NOTE: If the depth calibration is off, the user will not be able to rely on the stop
point for stopping the blocks at the right height. This feature is a helper tool and is
not to be relied on as a failsafe. The user must always be aware of where the block
is at and if it is noticed that the height/depth calibration is incorrect, the user should
attempt a calibration as soon as possible to prevent any false readings or problems.
Refer to the “BLOCK POS CAL” screen for more information on calibrating the
encoders.

3.22 V. ROP SET POINT

Figure 3-24 ROP SETPOINT button

The “ROP SETPOINT” digital display button shows the current ROP set point
(limit) for the auto driller in units of feet per hour. This set point gives the auto
driller an ROP to achieve (drill by). With “ENABLE AUTODRILL” enabled
(green), the auto driller will try to achieve, and then maintain the ROP specified in
the “ROP SETPOINT” by altering the WOB and drive speed. When the
“ENABLE WOB” button is activated (green), the auto driller will attempt to

Page 3-16 Issue (10/06)


OEM DDCS™ Software User Manual Drill Screen

achieve the ROP set point until the “WOB SETPOINT” is reached. At this time
the WOB takes control of the auto driller and its main function is to keep the bit
weight below the “WOB SET POINT”. Once the WOB is below the “WOB SET
POINT”, the auto driller will resume trying to achieve the “ROP SETPOINT”. It
is not uncommon for the Auto driller’s control to jump from the “ROP
SETPOINT” to the “WOB SETPOINT”, especially when the “ROP SETPOINT”
is achieved at or above the “WOB SETPOINT”. This display also acts as a button
which brings up a data entry menu so that the user can enter in the set point. The
display units are in feet per hour. If 20 is typed into the data entry menu, then the
auto driller will attempt to drill at 20 feet per hour. It is easy to tell which set
points are in control because green lettering will appear on the screen between the
set point and the digital reading of the parameter that is currently in control. The
parameter in control will also be framed in a blue box. Refer to Figure 3-25
which shows ROP in control of the auto driller. Note the blue frame around
“ROP (FEET/HOUR)” and “ROP SETPOINT” and also note the “ROP IN
CONTROL” dialog displayed in between these two digital displays.

Figure 3-25 Auto driller with ROP in control

3.23 W. ROP (FEET/HOUR)

Figure 3-26 ROP (Feet per Hour)

The “ROP (FEET/HOUR)” digital display indicates the current ROP of the bit in
units of feet per hour. This parameter is updated continuously and is a display
only item. If auto driller is enabled, the number shown in this digital display
correlates with the “ROP SETPOINT” and represents the actual ROP being
achieved. If Figure 3-26 had a value of 50, this would indicate that the rate of
penetration at that point was 50 feet per hour. A value of 0.0 indicates no hole is
being made or that the rate of penetration is less than .0 feet per hour.

3.24 X. HIGH STOP POINT

Figure 3-27 High Stop Point

The “HIGH STOP POINT” digital display button shows the highest point, in feet,
that the block can be raised from the floor before the system will not allow it to go
any higher. Figure 3-27 shows that the high stop point is 100 feet. This means
that once the blocks reach 100 feet up from the floor, the system will not allow it
to go any higher. Pressing this button will open a data entry menu in which the
value can be changed. If the block calibration is incorrect, and the block must go
lower than the “LOW STOP POINT” or higher than the “HIGH STOP POINT”,
the “DRAWWORKS OVERRIDE” button on the left arm of the drillers chair
can be pressed. This will override the draw works stop points and will give 10
seconds of 5% throttle to move past the stop points. If more time is needed, the
button can be pressed again or held down until the block has reached the desired
position.
NOTE: If the depth calibration is off, the user will not be able to rely on the stop
point for stopping the blocks at the right height. This feature is a helper tool and is
not to be relied on as a failsafe. The user must always be aware of where the block
is at and if it is noticed that the height/depth calibration is incorrect, the user should
attempt a calibration as soon as possible to prevent any false readings or problems.

The data entry menu will appear anytime a button is pressed that allows the user
to make changes to the data it is related to. Some data entry menus are
specialized and are not necessarily just for numerical entry. These items will be
discussed in the sections that they pertain to. This section describes the most
common data entry menu that is used the majority of the time. This menu is just a
numerical touch screen display that allows the user to enter a value for the
corresponding data. This section is broken up into sub sections for each of the
alphabetic tags shown in Figure 5-1.

attention to the title to make sure that the values being put in are for the correct
parameter. If the title cannot be read because it is cut off, it can be enlarged until
the title is shown in its entirety. An example of an enlarged data entry menu is
shown in Figure 5-2 on page 5-24.

5.2 B. Enlarge, Shrink and Exit


The enlarge and shrink buttons will enlarge or shrink the data entry menu
in its entirety. Enlarging a menu will allow easier access to the touch screen
buttons on the data entry menu, and will also make it easier to read. One of the
other benefits to enlarging the menu is that the title will be fully visible. Figure
5-2 shows an enlarged version of Figure 5-1. Notice that title in the enlarged
version is fully viewable while the original’s title is cutoff. It is possible to
enlarge the data entry menu to roughly 1/2 the size of the screen.
Shrinking the data entry menu will take up less screen real estate and allow the
user to still view most of the other information on the screen without having to
move the data entry menu all over the screen.
The data entry menu remembers the last size used, and will open up to that size
the next time it is accessed, regardless of if it is for the same parameter, or a
different one.

The exit button will close the data entry menu without accepting any changes.

In between the title and the data entry display is the high and low limits for that
particular data entry parameter. In Figure 5-2 the low limit is 0 and the high limit
is 150. This means that the user cannot enter a value lower than 0 or higher than
150. The limit indicated here is always a practical limit that, in real world
conditions, will never or should never be surpassed.

5.4 D. Data Entry Menu Keypad


The keypad is where the user will enter in the values for the selected parameter.
The keypad resembles a calculator’s keypad without the equation symbols. The
following is a brief description of each button on the keypad.
• The “Exp” button allows an exponential entry to be made. For example if the
user where to type “1”, “Exp”, “4”, the result would be 10,000.
• The “Back” button will erase one number from right to left in the data entry
display every time it is pressed. In other words it can be used to erase the last
number entered without having to clear the whole number.
• The “Clear” button will clear everything in the data entry display.
• The numerical buttons are used to enter in the corresponding number.
• The "." decimal button is used to enter a decimal value.
• The "-” negative button is NOT a minus sign. This button is used to give the
entered number a negative value.

The WOB section of the Trend screen is divided up into an “ACTUAL WOB”
digital display, a “WOB TARGET” digital display button, and an “ENABLE
WOB” button. Figure 8-8 is a screen shot of the WOB section. The left picture is
with WOB not enabled, and the right picture is with WOB enabled. When WOB
is enabled and in control of the auto driller, green lettering stating “WOB IN

deleted and drill screen version pasted

Figure 8-10 WOB Target Digital Display Button

The “WOB TARGET” digital display button shows the current WOB set point
(limit) for the auto driller in units of thousands of pounds (Klbs). When the
“ENABLE WOB” button is enabled (green) and the “ENABLE AUTODRILL”
button on the “DRILL SCREEN” is enabled, the auto driller will insure that this
set point is not surpassed. In other words this is the max bit weight that the auto
driller will use to attain/maintain its ROP. Once this set point is reached or
exceeded the main focus of the auto driller is diverted away from achieving the
ROP set points and directed towards getting below the WOB target. It is not
uncommon for the auto driller’s control to jump from the ROP target to the WOB
target, especially with the ROP target has a value that is achieved at or above the

WOB target. This display also acts as a button which brings up a data entry menu
so that the user can enter in the set point. The display units are in thousands of
pounds so to enter in a set point of 50,000 pounds, the user would type in 50.

8.4.1.3 ENABLE WOB


Comment [mg6]: Needs to be
replaced with Drill Screen version for
consistency
Figure 8-11 Enable WOB Button

The “ENABLE WOB” button enables or disables whether the automatic driller
looks to WOB as a drilling parameter. It is easy to identify when the automatic
driller is referring to the WOB as a limit in its auto drilling operations because the
“ENABLE WOB” button will be green as shown in the right picture of Figure
8-11. When the function is disabled, the “ENABLE WOB” button will be gray,
as shown in the left picture of Figure 8-11. The auto driller will only take the ROP
limit into consideration when WOB is not enabled. When the button is enabled,
the auto driller still drills by the ROP, but will now limit its WOB to the “WOB
TARGET”. When the target weight on bit is reached, the WOB takes control of
the auto driller until the WOB drops below the set point. It’s common to see the
control of the auto driller jump between both ROP and WOB when the desired
ROP can only be reached by drilling at or above the WOB target.
NOTE: The ENABLE WOB will not function unless the “ENABLE AUTODRILL”
Button on the “DRILL SCREEN” is enabled (green).

8.5 E. HOOK LOAD (KLBS)

Figure 8-12 HOOK LOAD Digital Display

This digital display shows the current hook load expressed in thousands of pounds
(klbs). Figure 8-12 shows 500 displayed. This means that the current hook load is
500,000 pounds. This display is view only. This value can only be edited from the
“Tech Calibration Screen 2”.

8.9 I. ZERO WOB

Figure 8-16 Zero WOB Button

It’s recommended that the bit weight be zeroed before tagging bottom on each
new connection by pressing the “ZERO WOB” button. The best procedure for
this is to:
1. Stop movement of the block within half a foot of tagging the bottom of the
hole. If already drilling and the weight on bit is incorrect, pick up until there is
no longer weight on the bit and then quit moving the block.
2. Press the “ZERO WOB” button.

3. Wait for the “ACTUAL WOB” digital display to read 0.0


4. Proceed with drilling operations.

8.10 J. Trending Display

Figure 8-17 Trending Display

The Trending Display is a graphical display representing the items listed in the
Trend Legend. The X- Axis (Horizontal Axis) represents time and the Y-Axis
(Vertical Axis) represents the respective units for each line. The X- Axis displays
1 hours worth of time with 15 minutes of data between each grid line. The Y
access is scaled from -100 for the low scale to 200 for the high scale. This is a
relative representation of the items being displayed depending on which item is
being looked at and its default unit of measurement. For example, the red line
represents ROP. If the red line was riding the horizontal grid line marked as 50
then this would mean that the ROP for that moment was 50 feet per hour. If the
yellow line was riding the 50 however, it would not mean that the hook load was
50 foot per hour; it would mean that there was 50,000 pounds or 50 klbs at that
point in time. To find what units are being represented, refer to the coinciding
digital display and look at what units are presented there. For example the ROP
digital display shows the units in feet per hour, so the scale is in feet per hour. The
“HOOKLOAD” digital display shows the units as KLBS. So the Y-axis is in
thousands of pounds. This allows the user to view a multitude of items using the
same graphical display.

8.15 O. BLOCK LOW STOP POINT

Figure 8-22 Block Low Stop Point

The “BLOCK LOW STOP POINT” digital display button indicates the lowest
point the user can lower the block in feet. If Figure 8-22 were 20 instead of 0 it
would mean that when lowering the block the user would not be able to go lower
than 20 feet. Pressing this button opens a data entry menu in which the user can
change the value for this item. If the block calibration is incorrect, and the user
need to go lower than the “BLOCK LOW STOP POINT” or higher than the
“BLOCK HIGH STOP POINT”, the user can press the “DRAWWORKS
OVERRIDE” button on the left arm of the driller’s chair. This will allow the user
to override the draw works stop points and will give 10 seconds of 5% throttle to
move past the stop points. If more time is needed, the user can press the button
again, or hold it down until the user has reached the desired position.
NOTE: The Block Low Stop Point Operates exactly the same as the “LOW STOP
POINT” digital display button on the “DRILL” screen.

NOTE: If the depth calibration is off, the user will not be able to rely on this stop
point for stopping the blocks at the right height. This feature is a helper tool and is
not to be relied on as a failsafe. Always be aware of where the block is at and if it is
noticed that the height/depth calibration is not correct, attempt a calibration as soon
as possible to prevent any false readings or problems. Refer to the “BLOCK POS
CAL” screen for more information on calibrating the encoders.

8.16 P. BLOCK HIGH STOP POINT

Figure 8-23 Block High Stop Point

The “BLOCK HIGH STOP POINT” digital display button shows the highest
point, in feet, that the user can raise the blocks from the floor before the system
will not allow the block to go any higher. Figure 8-23 show that the high stop
point is 100 feet. This means that once the blocks reach 100 feet up from the
floor, the system will not allow the block to go any higher. Pressing this button
will open a data entry menu in which the user can change this value. If the block
calibration is incorrect, and the user needs to go lower than the “BLOCK LOW
STOP POINT” or higher than the “BLOCK HIGH STOP POINT”, the user can
press the “DRAWWORKS OVERRIDE” button on the left arm of the driller’s
chair. This will allow the user to override the draw works stop points and will
give 10 seconds of 5% throttle to move past the stop points. If more time is

needed, the user can press the button again, or hold it down until the block has
reached the desired position.
NOTE: The “BLOCK HIGH STOP POINT” digital display button operates exactly
the same way as the “HIGH STOP POINT” digital display button on the “DRILL”
screen.

NOTE: If the depth calibration is off, the user will not be able to rely on this stop
point for stopping the blocks at the right height. This feature is a helper tool and is

The Encoder Positions Screen Indicates the current position of each encoder,
Drum 1, Drum 2, Draw Works A, and Draw Works B. When an encoder is
labeled in red as shown in Figure 9-3, this indicates that the encoder calibration is
out or a signal is not being received from the encoder. If the encoder label is
green, the encoder’s calibration as far as the system knows is correct and the
signal from the encoder is working correctly. When an encoder is red, the
calibration from a working encoder (indicated by the label appearing green) can
be copied to the other encoders by pressing the corresponding copy to others
button. This will allow the user to get up and running until a full calibration on
the encoder can be performed.

9.5 E. DEAD WRAPS ON FIRST LAYER

Figure 9-6 Dead Wraps on First Layer Section

This section indicates the number of unused (Dead) wraps on the drum. This can
be identified by physically counting the number of wraps on the last layer that has
wraps that are used in the actual movement of the block. Usually this is the
second layer on the drum. For example, when the Kelly or Top Drive is at the
lowest point it can go, the user would look at the drum and count how many
wraps are left on the current layer. This number is what the user would put into
the system. The “CURRENT VALUE” digital display indicates the current
number of dead wraps set in the system. To enter a new value, the user will press
the “NEW VALUE” digital display button. A data entry menu will appear and
the user will put in the new value. The new value will now appear in the “NEW
VALUE” digital display button, but will not become the current value until the
“ENTER VALUE” button is pressed. Once the “ENTER VALUE” button is
pressed the “CURRENT VALUE” digital display will indicate the new value, and
the “NEW VALUE” digital display button will show a value of 0.

pressed the current value digital displays will show the new values, and the
new values will be reset to zero.
• A “SCALED VALUE” digital display which shows what the current reading
is for that particular parameter.
• A “RAW COUNTS” digital display which represents the current sensors
actual “raw” reading not scaled to the parameters engineering unit. This value
will differ depending on what type of sensor it is, if it reads current or voltage,
and what the actual bit rating is for the module it is being fed through.

The current values for each section are what the current minimum and maximum
values for that parameter are set to. An example would be the Aux Brake Pressure
in Figure 11-1 which has a current min value of 0 and a current max value of 300.
This indicates that the respective sensors lowest raw count value is equal to a
scaled value of 0 (0 PSI) and that the respective sensors highest raw count value is
equal to a scaled value of 300 (300 PSI). To enter in a new value, the user will
press the “NEW MIN” or “NEW MAX” digital display button and will enter a
numerical value for that parameter in the data entry menu that pops up. Once the
new value is input, it will display on the respective “NEW MIN” or NEW MAX”
digital display, but will not actually be set to the current min or max value. To
activate the new values as the current min or max value, the user must press the
“ENTER NEW VALUES” button. Once pressed, the new value will be assigned
to the current min or max value, and the system will now display this value in the
respective “CURRENT MIN” and/or “CURRENT MAX” digital display.
Typically a sensor will indicate what its low and high scaled readings are. For
example, an air pressure sensor may show that it is a 0-300 PSI sensor. It may
also indicate that it outputs a 4 – 20 mA signal. This would mean that when
outputting 4 milliamps, the unit is showing no pressure. With an output of 20
milliamps the sensor has 300 PSI or more applied to it. This value is the scaled
value; the sensor is actually outputting a digital value or “raw” value which the
Interview software or the PLC translates or converts to a scaled value. This “raw”
value is represented by the “RAW COUNTS” digital display. The “SCALED
VALUE” represents this “raw” value converted to the parameters engineering unit
of measurement. Sometimes outside variables such as temperature, humidity,
interference line loss or power may vary the actual values of a sensor. So a 4
milliamp output may give a reading of 10 PSI instead of 0. This is why the Tech
Calibration screen allows users to change the min and max values, so that the
readings can be adjusted accordingly to compensate for outside factors or if a I/O
module or sensor is used with different values. Each section on the Tech
Calibration Screen 2 has an alphabetical label in Figure 10-1 and is described
below.
NOTE: An engineering unit is a broad term representing the actual unit of
measurement for that particular parameter. The engineering unit for Aux Brake
Pressure would be PSI because PSI is the unit used to measure the pressure of the
auxiliary brake. So referring to Figure 11-1, the current max value for Aux Brake

The Tech Calibration Screens are where the user will enter in all of the parameters
for the rig. This includes all sensor calibrations and rig values needed for the
system to give the user relevant feed back.
Tech Calibration Screen 3 is broken up into multi function sections for each
parameter on the screen. Each section contains the following:
• A “CURRENT MIN” and “CURRENT MAX” digital display which indicates
what the current minimum and maximum values are set to based on the scaled
engineering unit for that parameter.
• A “NEW MIN” and “NEW MAX” digital display button which allows the
user to input a new value for the selected item. These digital display buttons
are labeled “NEW MIN” and “NEW MAX” and have black backgrounds with
green text.
• An “ENTER NEW VALUES” button which assigns the new min and new
max values to the current min and current max values. Once this button is

Page 12-58 Issue (10/06)


OEM DDCS™ Software User Manual Tech Calibration Screen 3

pressed the current value digital displays will show the new values, and the
new values will be reset to zero.
• A “SCALED VALUE” digital display which shows what the current reading
is for that particular parameter.
• A “RAW COUNTS” digital display which represents the current sensors
actual “raw” reading not scaled to the parameters engineering unit. This value
will differ depending on what type of sensor it is, if it reads current or voltage,
and what the actual bit rating is for the module it is being fed through.

The current values for each section are what the current minimum and maximum
values for that parameter are set to. An example would be the Aux Brake Water
Inlet Temp in Figure 12-10 which has a current min value of 32 and a current max
value of 212. This indicates that the respective sensors lowest raw count value is
equal to a scaled value of 32 degrees Fahrenheit and that the respective sensors
highest raw count value is equal to a scaled value of 212 degrees Fahrenheit. To
enter in a new value, the user will press the “NEW MIN” or “NEW MAX” digital
display button and will enter a numerical value for that parameter in the data entry
menu that pops up. Once the new value is input, it will display on the respective
“NEW MIN” or NEW MAX” digital display, but will not actually be set to the
current min or max value. To activate the new values as the current min or max
value, the user must press the “ENTER NEW VALUES” button. Once pressed,
the new value will be assigned to the current min or max value, and the system
will now display this value in the respective “CURRENT MIN” and/or
“CURRENT MAX” digital display.
Typically a sensor will indicate what its low and high scaled readings are. For
example, an air pressure sensor may show that it is a 0-300 PSI sensor. It may
also indicate that it outputs a 4 – 20 mA signal. This would mean that when
outputting 4 milliamps, the unit is showing no pressure. With an output of 20
milliamps the sensor has 300 PSI or more applied to it. This value is the scaled
value; the sensor is actually outputting a digital value or “raw” value which the
Interview software or the PLC translates or converts to a scaled value. This “raw”
value is represented by the “RAW COUNTS” digital display. The “SCALED
VALUE” represents this “raw” value converted to the parameters engineering unit
of measurement. Sometimes outside variables such as temperature, humidity,
interference line loss or power may vary the actual values of a sensor. So a 4
milliamp output may give a reading of 10 PSI instead of 0. This is why the Tech
Calibration screen allows users to change the min and max values, so that the
readings can be adjusted accordingly to compensate for outside factors or if a I/O
module or sensor is used with different values. Each section on the Tech

riding the horizontal grid line marked as 50 then this would mean that the ROP
for that moment was 50 feet per hour. If the yellow line was riding the 50
however, it would not mean that the hook load was 50 foot per hour; it would
mean that there was 50,000 pounds or 50 klbs at that point in time. To find what
units are being represented, refer to the coinciding digital display and look at what
units are presented there. For example the ROP digital display shows the units in

that whenever the master pump was pushing mud through the stand pipe, that the
slave pump was sucking mud into the piston to be pushed. This allows for a more
steady pressure on the standpipe, because while one pump is sucking mud, the
other is pushing it, which keeps an even flow of pressure.
