SCADA – Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition System

Real-time monitoring, collection and control of data

SCADA (Supervisor, Control and Data Acquisition) systems are tools that facilitate the control of part or all of the factory, interacting with the machines and historicising their data in real time. They allow engineers to monitor and control the production flow more easily.

SCADA consists of a software platform connected to the PLCs and plant actuators. From these, data is extracted for the execution of manufacturing recipes and to capture and historise process variables on a continuous basis. These systems provide a global view of the plant to facilitate more efficient production.

The system is configurable and customisable to the reality of each plant, allowing it to adapt to the needs of each industry and its objectives.

Examples of SCADA Systems

SCADA system functionalities

Grupo 1342

Real-time data collection and processing

The SCADA system collects, processes and monitors data in real time to help make better production decisions.

Grupo 1335

Remote control of production

The system controls production remotely or via a local network allowing users to interact with the machines from anywhere.


Alarm generation

The SCADA is able to generate alarms, if it detects machine failures or variations in the production process.

Grupo 1388

High connectivity

The system provides high connectivity with HMI interfaces, sensors and other industry and database applications.

Applications of SCADA systems

SCADA systems apply to any industrial process, which is why they are a common and standard technology in most industrial sectors. The main advantages lie in the flexibility of the system, the view of the factory status and the monitoring of alarms and warnings. In addition, having a SCADA facilitates the implementation of MOM management systems thanks to the historical database it contains.
