SCADA stands for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition. This is a system of software and hardware elements for gathering and analyzing real time data, which allows organizations to:

  • Record events into a log file
  • Monitor, gather and processes real-time data
  • Control industrial processes at remote locations or locally
  • Directly interact with devices such as sensors and motors through human-machine interface (HIMI) software.

SCADA systems are the foundations of modern industries such as energy, power, transportation, oil and gas, recycling, food and beverage, manufacturing and water/waste water. They are crucial since they help to maintain efficiency, process data for smarter decisions, and communicate system issues to help mitigate downtime.

The basic SCADA architecture begins with programmable logic controllers (PLCs) or remote terminal units (RTUs). PLCs and RTUs are microcomputers that communicate with an array of objects such as factory machines, HMIs, sensors and end devices, and then route the information from those objects to computers with SCADA software.

SCADA software processes, distributes and displays the data, helping operators and other employees analyze the data and make important decisions.

Numerous studies have shown that an effective SCADA system can save organizations money by staying on budget, staying on time and increasing overall profitability.
