SCADA

The term SCADA stands for Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition. A SCADA system is a common process automation system which is used to gather data from sensors and instruments located at remote sites and to transmit and display this data at a central site for control or monitoring purposes. The collected data is usually viewed on one or more SCADA Host computers located at the central or master site. SCADA Host computers also provide functions for graphical displays, alarming, trending and historical storage of data. A real world SCADA system can monitor and control hundreds to hundreds of thousands of I/O points.
