SUPERVISION AND DATA MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS (SCADA)
SCADA systems are now essential systems for a large number of industrial organizations because they enable them to control assets of various sizes and even entire plants. With Autechno SCADA systems, you can gain insight into operations, control your processes and make data-driven business decisions.
We are specialists in the development and implementation of SCADA software in the industrial field for:
- The graphical visualization of process
- The historicization of variables (data loggers)
- The visualization of analog trends
- The management of complex relational
In the implementation of the above, we use products developed by the world’s leading manufacturers in the field, which, amalgamated with the professionalism and experience of our technicians, make it a perfect product for every need.
In particular, we are experts in the use of the following commercial SCADA:

1. SCADA DEFINITION
The acronym SCADA stands for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition and describes the basic functions of a SCADA system. Companies make use of SCADA systems to monitor the facilities at all their sites and to collect and record data related to their activities.
A SCADA system is usually presented as a combination of software and hardware elements, such as programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and remote terminal units (RTUs). Data acquisition begins with the communication of PLCs and RTUs with plant equipment, including machinery and sensors. The collected data is then sent to the higher level, such as to the control station, where operators can supervise PLC and RTU controls via human-machine interfaces (HMIs). HMIs are the monitors used by operators to communicate with the SCADA system and are an important element.
The use of SCADA systems enables organizations to control their industrial processes both locally and remotely, as well as to interact directly with parts of the equipment and thus with motors, pumps, and sensors across the line from a central location. Sometimes such systems are able to monitor plants autonomously, based on incoming data. With these types of systems, organizations monitor and document processes based on real-time data and store the data for later processing and evaluation
2. SCADA SYSTEMS DEFINITION
Organizations can use SCADA systems to:
- Control processes locally or remotely
Interact with plants using HMI software
- Collect, monitor and process data
- Record events and data
These functions provide companies with a broader view of their processes. In fact, the data collected show real-time machine operation and long-term trends in order to identify any opportunities for improvement. Based on this data, operators can set the operation of their plant through SCADA-enabled controls, making changes both on-site and remotely and correcting operations at the level of the entire facility, individual processes or just specific machines.
With SCADA systems, organizations can also use data to improve efficiency, gather actionable information for decision making, or improve communication and avoid downtime. To gain maximum benefit from data from various sources, it is necessary to store it centrally in a SCADA system. Well-integrated SCADA software can channel data from numerous software, process it and then send it to other systems in various formats.
Advanced SCADA software can create comprehensive, customized reports and automatically receive responses from plants for the information in these reports. In a quality management application, for example, the system might trigger an alarm if a report indicates that a batch of products is defective. In energy management, on the other hand, a SCADA system can reduce the energy consumption of a certain machine or various systems if a peak load is expected.
With functions like these, SCADA systems save organizations significant amounts of time and money. They are useful for companies to increase the efficiency of their operations, reduce downtime, ensure product quality, and more.
SCADA systems can range from relatively simple to massive and complex depending on the organization using them and the applications in which they are used.
