We also include electric rotary actuators in this section that can be used for a large number of electric tooling applications.

subCAN - Available for Upgrade to Comanche and Mohican Systems


Available for Upgrade to Comanche and Mohican Systems

subCAN system layout is simple and intuitive.  The pilot controller provides all ROV controls and switches close to hand.  The touch screen interface shows a system status, alarms and diagnostics at a glance.  Additional controls and set-ups can be implemented via the touch screen interface.

One subsea controller is used for each sub-system.  On-board diagnostics, both on the controller and the FO multiplexer, communicate status back to surface.

Due to their very high capacity, additional equipment and sensors are easily incorporated into the subsea controllers.
