Industrial computer used in SCADA system.

 SCADA is simply a monitoring and data acquisition control system. It was born with the role of supporting people in monitoring and remote control. So what is SCADA? What is the function of the SCADA system? And what are the current applications of SCADA? Follow the article to learn more about SCADA!

* What is SCADA?

SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) – supervisory control and data acquisition system consisting of SCADA hardware and software constituting the complete system. SCADA is also an indispensable element for optimization in all industrial applications.

* What are the basic functions of the SCADA system?

– Control – Monitor (remotely)

– Collect – Process real-time data

– Data saving

– Direct interaction with devices in the system through the HMI human-machine interface.

PLCs and RTUs are devices that communicate with a series of objects such as HMI screens, sensors and terminals, etc.

Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) is an important and essential software system for industries:

– Energy .

– Food Technology .

– Manufacture .

– Oil and Gas .

– Electricity.

– Recycling .

– Carriage .

– Clean water and wastewater treatment.
