Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA)
In case you were not aware, SCADA stands for "Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition”. These systems provide centralized monitoring and control of all instruments and processes within a facility. Just as each facility is unique, so is the type, size, and scope of SCADA systems. Things to consider when putting together a SCADA solution include the size of the facility, types of controls, information required, security concerns, user interface requirements, number of points, and the level of security.
