SCADA has traditionally meant a window into the process of a plant or gathering of data from devices in the field, but now the focus is on integrating this process data into the actual business and using it in real time.
The emphasis today is on using open standards such as communication protocols (e.g. OPC, MODBUS, and TCP/IP) and ‘off-the-shelf’ hardware, such as industrial Ethernet to keep the costs down.
This Practical SCADA Systems for Industry course at IDC Technologies covers the essentials of SCADA systems.
The first topics give an introduction to SCADA systems and then focus on the SCADA system hardware and software, including alarm management and Human Management Interface (HMI) issues.
This is followed by a review of the RS-232/RS-485 interface standards and the MODBUS and DNP3 protocols.The remainder of the topics give a review of industrial Ethernet, TCP/IP and MODBUS/TCP. The role of Open Process Control (OPC) in plant SCADA systems is also discussed along with network security, SCADA historians and troubleshooting issues.
