Introduction

Although the PLC has been with us for more than forty years, its role in the industrial environment is widely accepted. For many of its early years its role was confined to simple sequence control and interlocking. Later, however, with the advance of increasingly sophisticated microprocessor technology, analog capability – particularly PID control –, and communications, it became an integral part of the PLC functionality. However, the PLC was essentially blind and it was really only with the advent of current generation of Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems that the PLC/SCADA took on a new life – competing directly with advanced DCS systems and other advanced automation systems.

This workshop, SCADA and Telemetry Systems, is designed to provide engineers and technicians with the basic theoretical and practical understanding of SCADA systems together with an overview of modern digital communication standards and networks – starting at the basic RS232 standard right through to Modbus over TCP/IP and how this can be applied to optimize their systems in terms of safety, flexibility and costs. The workshop also discusses modern radio links, ranging from application through to troubleshooting, and the use and selection of wireless link devices.

Objectives

On successful completion of this workshop delegates will be able to:

  • Recognize the different components of a SCADA system
  • Appreciate the basic principles of data communications
  • Evaluate the requirements for PLC-to-SCADA communications
  • Understand the importance of the ISO OSI model
  • Appreciate the use of wireless communications in the industrial environment
  • Recognise the various wireless communication standards
  • Apply radio telecommunications in a practical manner and make use of troubleshooting techniques
  • Understand the concept of Modbus/Serial and Modbus/TCP
  • Apply Modbus in a practical manner and make use of troubleshooting techniques
  • Understand modern SCADA applications and deployments

Training Methodology

Designed for both novice and experienced engineers and technicians, this workshop provides an insight into modern SCADA and digital communication principles. Throughout the workshop, participants will learn through active participation using exercises, questionnaires, and practical simulation and demonstration sessions covering:

  • Realization of various communication strategies
  • Networking
  • Hardware diagnostics
  • Basic programming
  • Modbus operation
  • Operations
  • Maintenance

Organisational Impact

Following the training and development experience provided by this workshop, participants will return to their organizations equipped with new skills and knowledge that will enable them to evaluate the impact of new and existing SCADA and Telemetry technologies as they relate to your plant’s automation strategy and apply a rationalized philosophy based on the best available practices. By leveraging these skills, your enterprise can expect an improvement in overall productivity through the reduction in downtimes resultant from inappropriate automation strategy and through the ability to apply, install, and troubleshoot a modern SCADA and Telemetry systems.

 

Personal Impact

On successful completion of course delegates will be able to:

  • Understand SCADA and Telemetry Systems and their impact on process automation
