THE COURSE
SCADA has traditionally meant a window into the process of a plant or gathering of data from devices in the field, but now the focus is on integrating this process data into the actual business and using it in real time. The emphasis today is on using open standards such as communication protocols (eg DNP3, MODBUS, and TCP/IP) and ‘off-the-shelf’ hardware, such as industrial Ethernet to keep the costs down. This comprehensive course covers the essentials of SCADA systems.

The first part of the course gives an introduction to SCADA systems then focuses on the SCADA system hardware and software, including alarm management and Human Management Interface (HMI) issues. This is followed by a review of the RS-232/RS-485 interface standards and the MODBUS and DNP3 protocols.

The second part gives a review of industrial Ethernet, TCP/IP and MODBUS/TCP.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
This course is designed to benefit engineers and technicians who are involved in specifying, commissioning and debugging industrial SCADA systems but who have little previous experience in this field.

It is also of particular benefit to personnel involved in areas of design, specification, installation, commissioning, maintenance and documentation of industrial control and instrumentation systems where used, this includes:

  • Consulting engineers
  • Control system application engineers
  • Control systems sales engineers
  • Design engineers
  • Electrical engineers
  • Instrumentation and control engineers
  • IT personnel
  • Maintenance supervisors
  • Plant engineers
  • Process control engineers
  • Project engineers
  • Technicians

PRE-REQUISITES: 
Fundamental knowledge of SCADA.
