This white paper will teach you the following core SCADA concepts:
What SCADA is and what SCADA can do for you
SCADA is much more than a particular technology. SCADA solutions come in many different forms, but they're all built on the same principle - providing you with mission-critical data and control capabilities that you must have to effectively manage your operation. This white paper will introduce you to SCADA and show you how to leverage it in your operations.
Which industries implement SCADA systems
Just as SCADA solutions come in many forms, so do SCADA system users. SCADA is used in a broad range of industries, and this white paper discusses 6 of the most common. You'll hear about well-known SCADA operations, as well as some that you probably wouldn't expect.
The true value of SCADA in your operations
You'll discover applications for SCADA in your operations that you may not have thought of. SCADA has the potential to add millions to your bottom line. This white paper will show you how.
How real-time SCADA monitoring and control will increase your operational efficiency and maximize your profitability
In this white paper, you'll see the information and control capabilities that a SCADA system can give you. You'll see the virtues of SCADA in instant problem detection and long-term trending.
An overview of how SCADA systems function
A SCADA system performs 4 key functions, and you'll review each of them in this white paper. You'll learn about SCADA sensors, SCADA RTUs, SCADA masters, and overarching communications networks that tie widespread SCADA equipment together.
SCADA Data Acquisition
You'll see how strategically place sensors will give your SCADA system visibility of critical operational processes
SCADA Data Communication
No SCADA system can function properly without a strong backbone. You'll learn the importance of a reliable data network in a SCADA solution.
SCADA Data Presentation
No SCADA system has any value for human decision makers if it can't output information. Data presentation is a critical part of SCADA, and you'll learn about it here.
Some operations are much too massive or much too fast for humans to control directly. A SCADA system solves this problem by using the data it collects to react automatically. You and your staff receive data from your SCADA system about the current status of your overall operation, and you can make changes as needed.
How to evaluate SCADA hardware
SCADA systems are a very important investment for you and your company. You have to get a system that works reliably and performs all necessary functionality to ensure that you get a maximum return on your SCADA investment.
How to evaluate SCADA software
You'll learn about value benefits provided by SCADA software. You'll see SCADA RTU (Remote Telemetry Unit) software that is smart enough to notify you in a variety of different ways (even when LAN communication is lost) and SCADA master software that presents alarms as instantly actionable information for your operators.
Key SCADA RTU (Remote Telemetry Unit) Features
Choosing the right SCADA remote is serious business, and you'll see key features to look for when talking to vendors.
Valuable SCADA Master Features
A SCADA master station is a sizeable investment. You don't want to make the wrong choice. In this white paper, you'll get a detailed list of benefits that any high-quality SCADA master should offer you.
