SCADA & PLC Programming
Incus Power design, create and provide Programmable Logic Control (PLC) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA).
Programmable Logic Control Explained
A programmable logic controller, PLC or programmable controller is a digital computer used for automation of typically industrial electromechanical processes, such as control of machinery on factory assembly lines, amusement rides, or light fixtures.
SCADA stands for supervisory control and data acquisition. It is an industrial control system where a computer system monitoring and controlling a process
Components of SCADA
1. Human Machine Interface (HMI)
It is an interface which presents process data to a human operator, and through this, the human operator monitors and controls the process.
2. Supervisory (computer) system
It gathers data on the process and sending commands (or control) to the process.
3. Remote Terminal Units (RTUs)
It connect to sensors in the process, converting sensor signals to digital data and sending digital data to the supervisory system.
4. Programmable Logic Controller (PLCs)
It is used as field devices because they are more economical, versatile, flexible, and configurable than special-purpose RTUs.
5. Communication infrastructure
It provides connectivity to the supervisory system to the Remote Terminal Units.
