SCADA - Supervisory Control and Data Aquisition
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
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.
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.
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.
