SCADA stands for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition system. It is a type of industrial control system (ICS), which is basically a computer system designed to monitor industrial processes in the real world. But unlike other industrial control systems, SCADA systems can compute multiple sets of data over long distances.
The primary benefit of a SCADA system is the ability to see a visual representation of a complex system. This screen allows the user to see what their application is doing at any given time, while also providing increased control over the entire system.
Another benefit of a SCADA system is its versatility. Practical applications of SCADA can be found in HVAC, water treatment, and power generation facilities. Each SCADA system can be specifically configured for a wide variety of scenarios–if you think it up, we will build it.
One of the unique characteristic of a SCADA system is its ability to withstand temperature, vibration, and voltage extremes. This factor allows it to be placed in almost any HVAC or process plant without fear of breakage.
Preferred Utilities started installing SCADA systems in 1982–that’s over 25 years of experience. We’ve installed them on thousands of burners and hundreds of process plants.
