This technical article shed light on terminology used in the field of SCADA and industrial automation. A SCADA or supervisory control and data acquisition system means a system consisting of a number of remote terminal units or RTUs collecting field data connected back to a master station via a communications system.

The master station displays the acquired data x50 also allows the operator to perform remote control tasks.

The accurate and timely data normally real-time allows for optimization of the operation of the plant and process. A further benefit is more efficient, reliable and most importantly, safer operations. This all results in a lower cost of operation compared to earlier non-automated systems. There is a fair degree of confusion between the definition of SCADA systems and process control system.

SCADA has the connotation of remote or distant operation. A successful SCADA installation depends on utilizing proven and reliable technology, with adequate and comprehensive training of all personnel in the operation of the system.

There is a history of unsuccessful SCADA systems — contributing factors to these systems includes inadequate integration of the various components of the system, unnecessary complexity in the system, unreliable hardware and unproven software. It should be noted in passing that many operators judge a SCADA system not only by the smooth performance of the RTUs, communication links and the master station all falling under the umbrella of SCADA system but also the field devices both transducers and control devices.

The field devices however fall outside the scope of SCADA in this manual and will not be discussed further. The RTU provides an interface to the field analog and digital signals situated at each remote site. The communications system provides the pathway for communications between the master station and the remote sites.


This communication system can be radio, telephone line, microwave and possibly even satellite. Specific protocols and error detection philosophies are used for efficient and optimum transfer of data. The master station and submasters gather dtu from the various RTUs and generally provide an operator interface for display of information and control of the remote sites. In large telemetry systemssubmaster sites gather information from remote sites and act as a relay back to the control master station.

In addition there has been a growing trend to use smart instruments as a key component in all these systems. Definition — In a DCS, the data acquisition and control functions are performed by a number of distributed microprocessor-based units situated near to the devices being controlled or rtuu instrument from which data is being gathered.

Since the late s, PLCs have replaced hardwired relays with rtuu combination of ladder—logic software and solid state electronic input and output modules.


An RTU sometimes referred to as a remote telemetry unit as the title implies, is a standalone data acquisition and control unitgenerally microprocessor based, which monitors and controls equipment at some remote location from the central station. It generally tru has the facility for having its configuration and control programs dynamically downloaded from some central station.

There is also a facility to be configured locally by some RTU programming unit. Although traditionally the RTU communicates back to some central station, i t is also possible to communicate on a peer-to-peer basis with other RTUs.

The RTU can also act as a relay station sometimes referred to as a store and forward station to another RTU, which may not be accessible from the central station.

Small sized RTUs generally have less than 10 to 20 analog and digital signals, medium sized RTUs have digital and 30 to 40 analog inputs. RTUs, having a capacity greater than this can be classified as large. Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition mechanism plays an important role in determining the processes and control system.

It further sends processed information to supervising unit for analytics. The efforts of the Author is appreciated to comprised all Terminology.

I am profoundly honored to apply for the post of as per above subject.

I hope this brief account of my experience intrigues you. I can imagine the many challenges the maintenance department face that could benefit from my diverse Electrical background, as well as my vision for quick lifelong learning.

FOXBORO C50 RTU – Electric power & transmission & distribution – Eng-Tips

Preventive maintenance Electrical troubleshooting, repair Summary: I had completed form four then join at technical college from specialization in electrical engineering as full rti. Preventive maintenance Electrical troubleshooting, repair and preventive maintenance PM check Work location and should be able to work in elevated areas.

I had attended LVand HV switching training. As senior competent end technician.

From my experience the main reasons for failure of SCADA are due to too much of complexity and lack of awareness among Engineers at the lower end in the system. Similar, but not the same This technical article shed light on terminology used in the field of SCADA and industrial automation.

Today hardware reliability is less of a problem, but the increasing software complexity is producing new challenges. DCS systems have evolved into systems providing very sophisticated analog e. A closely integrated set of operator interfaces or man machine interfaces is provided to allow for easy system configurations and operator control.
