A platform enables developers to easily create and maintain additional applications using a library of routines, processes, interface elements, and runtime libraries.
The FracCommand software library gives you a big head start with integration and customization.
It’s our software library that enables data communication with the different hardware controls, makes equipment available for controlling centrally from the data van, collects the data, logs it, shares it, makes it available for display, calculation and reporting. In order to make the FracCommand Suite work for all your equipment and other 3rd party controllers, we use this software library to give you a big head start with integration and customization.
FracCommand Platform consists of four layers of libraries and algorithms:
- The Communication layer that includes our proprietary TCP/IP protocol. The TCP/IP network allows customers to quickly setup a frac spread with “plug and play” FracCommand controls; i.e. PumpLink, BlenderLink, ChemLink, and HydrationLink are hooked into the Datavan by one network cable, are automatically recognized and ready to go without further installation.
- Data Logging for capturing data in real-time and sequential storage
- Data Processing to run the schedule, acquire data from the raw i/o, scaling, averaging and then displaying results as meaningful numbers
- Device Configuration “wrapper” that connects / interfaces with the other 3 layers to easily adapt to all the different pieces of equipment and controls that our customers own
The platform provides flexible and fast customization for our clients with bullet-proof code. More importantly, that means that our customers can each define and develop specific competitive differentiation based on their approach and equipment.
The FracCommand platform includes over 100 years of hydraulic frac operational experience guiding 50,000 software engineer man-hours to create the full FracCommand library.
There isn’t much we haven’t encountered so expect easy adaptability of FracCommand to your fleet. We’ve built software device drivers for many different manufacturers, and literally hundreds of different pieces of equipment, and any pump engine / transmission combination in the industry.
