Mr. Caro has chaired the ISA SP50 and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) SC65C/WG6 Fieldbus committees since 1993. He has led the ISA's committee to complete the operational portions of the Fieldbus standard, which are now American national standards. He still leads efforts in the IEC to pass the remaining portion of the standard internationally, where contention remains over the data link layer for applied industrial control.
