SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) is a system operating with coded signals over communication channels so as to provide control of remote equipment (using typically one communication channel per remote station). The control system may be combined with a data acquisition system by adding the use of coded signals over communication channels to acquire information about the status of the remote equipment for display or for recording functions. Industrial control systems (ICS) are computer-based systems that monitor and control industrial processes that exist in the physical world. SCADA systems historically distinguish themselves from other ICS by being large-scale processes that can include multiple sites, and large distances. These processes include industrial, infrastructure, and facility-based processes; Teguar offers the perfect solutions for such platforms.
A human–machine interface (HMI) panel is the input-output device through which the human operator controls the process, and which presents process data to a human operator.
HMI is usually linked to the SCADA system's databases and software programs such as Wonderware, to provide trending, diagnostic data, and management information such as scheduled maintenance procedures, detailed schematics for a particular sensor or machine, logistic information, and expert-system troubleshooting guides.
The HMI Panel PC system usually presents the information to the operating personnel graphically, in the form of a mimic diagram or tables. This means that the operator can see a schematic representation of the plant being controlled live. Mimic diagrams may consist of line graphics and schematic symbols to represent process elements, or may consist of digital photographs of the process equipment overlain with animated symbols and icons.
