SCADA Tutorial:
A Fast Introduction to SCADA Fundamentals and Implementation.

You already know that SCADA can save you a lot of money. It can also increase profitability. You should also understand that SCADA implementation can be a sinkhole of cost overruns and a string of disappointments. You can face acquisition, installation and implementation delays. You can end up equipment that has fewer capabilities than you need or vendor support that is not as readily accessible as you expected.

SCADA is not a specific technology, but a type of application. SCADA stands for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition - any application that gets data about a system in order to control that system is a SCADA application. A SCADA application has two elements: 1. The process/system/machinery you want to moni- tor a control - this can be a power plant, a water system, a network, a system of traffic lights, or anything else. 2. A network of intelligent devices that interfaces with the first system through sensors and control outputs. This network, which is the SCADA sys- tem, gives you the ability to measure and control specific elements of the first system. You can build a SCADA system using several differ- ent kinds of technologies and protocols. This white paper will help you evaluate your options and decide what kind of SCADA system is best for your needs.

To secure the benefits and avoid the problems requires intelligent design and careful planning of logistics. We strongly recommend one or more field trials strategically designed to exercise specific elements of the SCADA system. These can significanly reduce the cost of roll outs and increase the chances of success.

There is no reason not to take advantage of our over 30 years of experience in monitoring and control system design. This guide can be easily augmented by a simple phone call to one or our engineers to iron out the details of your particular application. You do not have to be restricted to some off-the-shelf system when you can have a solution tailored to your specific needs.

This guide shows how you can use SCADA effectively and profitably. Concrete applications and examples are included as illustration and to reinforce best practices.
