Telemetry and Remote SCADA Systems

While in the age of Internet of Things, connectivity has brought about a significant revolution in the automation industry. The connected devices are now integrated with software solutions to access and monitor the working of industrial parts. Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition is the process to acquire the data, process the functioning of the machine equipment and thereafter process the input to map with the output. The main aim is to check if the processes are aligned and introduce corrective measures if the output is not optimised. Operations of SCADA Systems include industrial processes like manufacturing, power generation and fabrication Also, the advanced process control provides an edge over other control programs as it helps the system to program the function with infrastructural processes like wastewater treatment, fitting and functioning of gas pipelines, transmission and distribution of power in the system etc. Through a methodical integration of up-to-date technologies and innovations, SCADA systems typically allow users to increase their efficiency, which in turn eases management processes by assisting supervisory efforts and simplifying them to a great extent. SCADA combines a huge amount of data that arises from multiple processes in an arranged manner so that only important and relevant information pertaining to the business can be examined when needed. This aids the managers and executives in an organisation/or of a building to make data-driven and profitable business verdicts.. Along with this it also offers greater scalability, interoperability, and comprehensive security by introducing its applicability. Schneider Electric India aims to further explore and widen the domain of SCADA systems in the near future with greater innovations.SCADA systems consist of five main components explained below – 1) Field Instrumentation - Field instrumentation refers to the array of monitors and transmitters on the factory floor that SCADA applications use. These elements come in a variety of forms, such as proximity sensors, temperature and pressure sensors, machine vision systems, energy monitors, and more. 2) Controllers - RTUs and PLCs collate and compile data sby field instrumentation, preparing it for display and analysis by a human–machine interface. 3) HMI (Human-Machine Interface) - HMI devices are master units that allow humans to regulate and supervise the SCADA data acquisition process. Operators also use HMIs to interact with the gathered data through graphical user interfaces, usually computer monitors, and compile reports for later use. 4) Network Connectivity - The SCADA system depends on an integrated network connectivity for operation. Facilities can achieve this using both wired lines and wireless variants, connecting conversion units to the master unit through either landlines or the internet. 5) Database - This relates to either a cloud or on-premise storage facility to store information.
