Scada Supervisory Control Data Acquisition
The objective of SCADA systems is to offer a comprehensive analysis of multiple processes and operations in real time with the ability to add in controls allowing changes or alterations to be made in real time. SCADA systems typically cover a varied or distributed database of elements and products which are grouped together via the PLC and have their progress illustrated via the HMI (Human-Machine Interface). Electrical systems and other processes that are sent to the PLC via RTUs (Remote Terminal Units) are connected via communication such as Modbus or at times Analog Output signals or Ethernet connectivity depending on the PLCs specification which allows the necessary information to be directly relayed.
SCADA systems are an integral component of building operations management and allow for process control for real time operational management. Meters such as Acuvim II series have multiple communication protocols that allow for a seamless connection between meter and PLC before contributing to the SCADA system as a whole.
