Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) can be used as a sophisticated HMI but has power and features well beyond what an HMI can offer. These features can include facility-wide control functions, data collection, video, reporting, diagnostics, key performance indicators (KPI), and even predictive maintenance functions.
A strong SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) system pulls it all together with the complete integration of all PLCs on the network, a reliable SQL database to store incoming systems monitoring, and a user-friendly Human Machine Interface (HMI) displays all system information accurately and allows smooth and precise control of all systems.
But SCADA programming doesn’t stop there. Your systems need to remain functional throughout any operating conditions including:
- Startup and shutdown
- Normal and abnormal operation
- Emergency shutdown sequence
