Effective SCADA Troubleshooting Starts with Understanding SCADA Fundamentals

Developing Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) troubleshooting skills is a subset of any good "SCADA Training" program.

SCADA troubleshooting is a key component of keeping your SCADA Remote Monitoring and Control system online. If you can't quickly diagnose and solve the problems that crop up, you really can't do your job effectively.

SCADA Troubleshooting

The basis of effective SCADA troubleshooting is a solid grasp of SCADA fundamentals. What are Remote Telemetry Units (RTUs)? How are they different from Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs)? How does a SCADA master collect network alarm management data from remotes? If you don't fully understand how your SCADA monitoring system works, how will you keep it running properly?

To develop the SCADA background knowledge you need, you must find a source you can trust to provide you with good information.

The best information comes from experts with hundreds of successful system installations. Not only do they know what they're talking about, but they also know what information is relevant and what can be left out. That's the kind of real-world expertise you need for effective SCADA troubleshooting.
