Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) is a control system architecture that uses computers, networked data communications and graphical user interfaces for high-level process supervisory management, but uses other peripheral devices such as programmable logic controllers and discrete PID controllers to interface to the process plant or machinery.
The operator interfaces which enable monitoring and the issuing of process commands, such as controller set point changes, are handled through the SCADA supervisory computer system.
However, the real-time control logic or controller calculations are performed by networked modules which connect to the field sensors and actuators.
APJ Automation offers the latest advances in SCADA technology including 64 bit solutions, intuitive 2D and 3D visualisation, the integration of enterprise-wide alarm and events management systems to deliver historical and real-time alarm information, PPC/OPC-UA compliant tools to trend and chart data from relational databases, and web-based development and configuration.
