Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) to control and gather real-time data can help to support making strategic decisions and facilitate ongoing operations. Not to be confused with HMI (Human Machine Interface) systems which are a component of SCADA though they can stand alone if required. Since the mid-20th century, SCADA has operated behind the scenes for most of the modern world industries.
Today’s industrial SCADA systems are comprised of programmable logic controllers (PLCs), Servers (local or remote) and remote terminal units (RTUs). These devices connect with industrial equipment to control, collect, monitor and process data which is used by operators to improve overall efficiency, predict maintenance schemes, and reduce downtime.
Hedgehog enters at any stage of the facility’s life cycle from designing a full SCADA system, integrating new HMI interfaces, to upgrading existing PLC controls. Our solutions are targeted to meet the unique demands of our industrial clients.
