Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) software is typically used in factory automation or process control applications, to monitor and control plant operations. SCADA generally provides an overview of plant operations and any control may be limited to slow speed operation, leaving real-time control in the hands of PID controllers or PLCs.
SCADA is often used for logging data into a database or for historical records. It may also be used for email communications with maintenance engineers in the event of alarms, and provides many other functions depending on the software used.
Here you will find details on our low cost SCADA software called DAQFactory. For a more comprehensive solution our Partner CopaData offers Zenon software which integrates with Straton for real-time control.
