Intro to SCADA – Basic Component Functions and Architecture

Information on what SCADA is, as well as its functions and components.

Shawn Perkins, P.E. and Senior Project Manager in the Electrical Group at Wessler, specializes in Instrumentation & Controls, SCADA design, and implementation. In this webinar, Shawn discusses information on SCADA systems (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition). You will find out why SCADA is known as “mission control” by learning about the benefits of SCADA, how it interacts with control systems to regulate processes, what makes up the components of a PLC/HMI system, and how all of these components work together to create a more unified control system. You will also gain a better understanding of the equipment, hardware, software and industry terminology used with SCADA.
