MYNAH Technologies: Ethernet driver for FPSO subsea integration
MYNAH Technologies’ FMC722 Ethernet Driver for the DeltaV Virtual IO Module provides a high-performance integration solution between Emerson’s DeltaV Process Systems and FMC Technologies Subsea control systems used in Floating Production and Storage Operation (FPSO) Oil and Gas Production Facilities.

Because this new driver uses the DeltaV Virtual IO Module (VIM), it provides a native DeltaV IO interface to the FMC Topside Processing Unit (TPU). The FMC772 Ethernet Driver features: support for read and write access to TPU AO, AI, DO and DI point tags; simplex or redundant installations; time synchronization from DeltaV to the FMC Subsea system; monitoring quality of connection and automatically restarts communications when connection is lost; and auto configuration of the interface from the FMC SmartTool configuration export file. Once uploaded to VIM, this is stored in non-volatile RAM.
