SCADA solutions refer to the software and hardware systems that are used to implement SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems. These solutions typically include a combination of software and hardware components that work together to provide real-time monitoring and control of industrial processes.
Some of the common components of SCADA solutions include:
- SCADA software: This is the core software component of a SCADA system, which is responsible for collecting and analyzing data from the remote terminals, displaying it in a meaningful way, and providing operators with the ability to control the process.
- Remote terminals or programmable logic controllers (PLCs): These are the field devices that are connected to the process and are responsible for monitoring and controlling the process at a local level.
- Communication infrastructure: This includes the hardware and software needed to connect the SCADA master with the remote terminals. This can include wired or wireless networks, modems, and other communication devices.
- Human-machine interface (HMI): This is the graphical user interface (GUI) that operators use to interact with the SCADA system, allowing them to view process data, issue commands, and make adjustments as needed.
- Data historian: This is a software component that is used to store and analyze historical data from the process, allowing operators to review trends, identify patterns, and make informed decisions.
- Alarm management: This is a software component that is used to manage alarms and notifications generated by the SCADA system.
SCADA solutions are typically customized to meet the specific needs of the industrial process being monitored and controlled, and can be integrated with other systems such as DCS, HMI, MES, ERP and more. The solution provider will work with the customer to understand their requirements and provide a tailored solution that meets their specific needs.
