• Introduction to SCADA Systems Integration (IC30C1)


    Length: 1 day
    CEU Credits: 0.7
    Course Hours: 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
    Certification of Completion: A Certificate of Completion indicating the total number of CEUs earned will be provided upon successful completion of the course.


    You will understand the parts and technologies that make up a SCADA system and will be able to evaluate potential benefits of applying the technology to your process application.

    You will be able to:

    • Describe the various components of a SCADA system.
    • Understand the background and history of component technologies
    • Recognize potential benefits of applying SCADA to some common industries.
    • Recognize the base standards that apply to SCADA
    • Lay out a SCADA system for potential application in your industry.
    • Appreciate the limitations of SCADA systems
    • Calculate the “scan time” required for SCADA systems of various sizes.
    • Recognize that Human Machine Interfaces are just a part of SCADA.
    • Understand the terms used in describing the technology.
    • Become familiar with the concepts of digital coding, protocols and modulation methods, why they are needed and where they are most effectively applied.
    • Evaluate the benefits of several examples of RTUs, MTUs, and communications methods.
    • Describe guidelines for executing a SCADA automation project.
