Oil and gas subsea equipment gets a network application profile

CAN networks on the ocean floor: To observe and protect the drilling process in sub-sea clusters of sensors, meters, and valves are used. But this is insufficient for reliability and interoperability requirements. SIIS (sub-sea instrument interface standardization) group worked with CiA (CAN in Automation) to network the equipment on the ocean floor, creating a new application profile for sub-sea equipment, which will help in standard formation.
