SCADA - Supervisory Control and Data Aquisition

Collecting and analysing real-time data

One of the most important points for seamless communication is innovative connection management. That is possible with the INSYS Smart Devices.

Added value

  • Monitoring, controlling and optimising plants

  • Adjustable to all situations

  • Transmitting data easily via cellular radio without complex radio data technology

  • Investment protection because plants are able to “grow”

Initial situation

SCADA systems collect and monitor data from distributed facilities and measuring points automated. IEC 62264 and DIN EN 62264 assign SCADA systems to the process control level (level 2) in the automation pyramid.

Fields of application

  • Energy transport via extensive networks (power, oil, gas)
  • Water/sewage management
  • Building management systems
  • Environmental measuring technology and monitoring
  • Process data processing and visualisation
  • Network control technology
  • Traffic engineering (signal systems)

Field and client level
Process controllers communicate with the field devices for data collection via field buses on field level. Users intervene for corrective action on client level.
Field and client level are connected via private or public data networks (Ethernet, DSL, telephone, mobile radio). A seamless communication is not always provided.

Objective
  • Stable data transmission
  • Secure connections via wide area networks
  • Management of interface problems
Solution

Smart Devices as well as Connectivity and Security Services of INSYS icom connect field devices and control centers.

They connect the field bus controllers with each other and with the client level via all modern communication networks.

Summary

One of the most important points for seamless communication is the innovative connection management of the INSYS Smart Devices:
It consists of autonomous monitoring of the VPN connection and and their immediate reconnection following a connection termination.

Application Connectors of INSYS icom are practical gateways on field level between field bus and IP world for connecting all devices.
