A Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) system that includes control software from Diamond Technologies allows you to monitor and control your large-scale operations and manufacturing processes using standard PCs. Integration of control, data acquisition and analysis functions in a common platform reduces the need to work in multiple languages and environments seen when programming and maintaining separate PLCs and operator interfaces.
SCADA control software is well suited for applications requiring:
- HMI plus control
- one or more third-party PC cards such as those for motion control or vision systems
- advanced data manipulation (even string arrays) and advanced math functions
- data exchange with business applications from spreadsheets to ERP systems
- communication with serial or networked field devices
- storage or access to large amounts of data
- a large number of PID loops (up to 64)
- open architecture for C/C++ or VisualBasic
