The purpose of this CAN communication architecture is to propose and collaboratively develop a simple, efficient, and expandable common industry standard CAN communication framework for MWD systems that is vendor agnostic and enables communication between multiple MWD sub-systems and components.

Inside the MWD CAN Architecture White Paper will find:

  • The CAN Frame Structure
  • Everything you need to know about Message Formats
  • Command structure
  • Common commands for all tools




Why is the MWD CAN Architecture relevant?

This white paper covers the Erdos Miller proposed CAN Communication Architecture for MWD tools. This is intended as an open specification for all companies to test and use.

A proposal for a common and open CAN communication scheme is presented to facilitate interoperability and a common communication protocol between MWD product vendors.

All feedback from others in the MWD industry is more than welcome!
