SINGLE CHANNEL PROTOCOL FOR TELEMETRY SETUP AND CONTROLHahn, Karl; Sangamo Weston, Schlumberger (International Foundation for Telemetering, 1982-09)In any telemetry data system whose functions are distributed over a number of physical units, it is desirable, if not necessary that these units be woven into a unified control network. It is this control network that makes a telemetry system out of the separate units. It turns out that this problem can be solved inexpensively, allowing new telemetry units to be easily added to the system, and without impacting the data flow between units. This paper describes one such solution, and details its flexibility and power. Some topics covered are central control, device independence, and relationships between user stations and physical units.
