Product Definitions

• A supervisory control and data acquisition system (SCADA) refers to an industrial computer system that monitors and controls a process of geographically distributed plant assets SCADA is a software suite placed on top of several hardware-like programmable logic controllers (PLCs) or other commercial hardware modules, main terminal or telemetry unit (MTU), remote telemetry units (RTUs), field instrumentation, and communication and networking equipment
• A PLC is a microprocessor-based controller for sequential control in discrete-process industries It scans all input/output (I/O) from sensors and actuators and uses a programmable memory for the internal storage of user instruction The program in it can be changed through a programming device such as a panel, host computer, or a hand-held terminal connected to the controller either directly or remotely through a network
• An RTU is a microprocessor-based unit that operates as a stand-alone data acquisition and control unit connecting the process equipment installed at remote locations to the central station It has a communication channel that connects with the central station and also with other RTUs which may not be accessible from the central station
• Variable frequency drives (VFDs) are alternating current (AC) drives and are usually referred to as a union between the electric motor and the speed control unit, which enables motor speed control by varying the power-supply frequency
