The definition of SCADA is “Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition”. The major function of SCADA is for acquiring data from remote devices such as valves, pumps, transmitters etc. and providing overall control remotely from a SCADA Host software platform. This provides process control locally so that these devices turn on and off at the right time, supporting your control strategy and a remote method of capturing data and events (alarms) for monitoring these processes. SCADA Host platforms also provide functions for graphical displays, alarming, trending and historical storage of data.
Multivision Systems provide instrumentation and RTUs/PLCs for asset or process solutions that can be easily managed and to provide operational benefits from the SCADA host down to the instrumentation, not just in terms of controlling and retrieving data but also engineering, implementing, operating and maintaining these assets.
Multivision Systems also employ open standards to further ease the integration of assets within a SCADA system using best practices defined by open groups and not a single manufacturing entity. This will in turn reduce the cost of owning SCADA.
Rich graphical user interfaces.
Monitor and control complicated processes from a remote location.
Functions for alarming,trending and historical storage of data.
Utilize open protocols allowing for the integration with multiple 3rd party systems.
