HARDWARE COMMUNICATION

Linking to supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems

Receiving online data streams from SCADA systems and controlling infrastructure through programmable logic controllers (PLCs) is often required to make operational systems even more useful. The SCADAConnect module is an extension to MIKE INFO that provides these capabilities.

FEATURES

  • MIKE INFO connects to SCADA – The ‘SCADAConnect’ module allows you to connect directly to SCADA via Open Platform Communications (OPC), previously termed Object Linking and Embedding for Process Control (OLE for Process Control). Your real-time data may be processed and quality assured in automated workflows, and made available as validated data or data reports through MIKE INFO Workbench and MIKE INFO Web.
  • MIKE INFO gives you control – With the ‘SCADAConnect’ module, you can communicate directly with your hardware PLCs, allowing online control of regulating infrastructure elements such as pumps in water distribution or drainage systems.
  • MIKE INFO supports offline and online data – The base version of MIKE INFO is designed for historical data, but can be extended with functionality for automation and for communication with SCADA and control systems.
