Control Systems (SCADA)

1. Control System integration

1.1 PLC

 A Programmable Logic Controller, or PLC for short, is simply a special computer device used for industrial control systems. They are used in many industries such as oil refineries, manufacturing lines, conveyor systems and so on. Where ever there is a need to control devices the PLC provides a flexible way to "softwire" the components together.

 The basic units have a CPU (a computer processor) that is dedicated to run one program that monitors a series of different inputs and logically manipulates the outputs for the desired control.  They are meant to be very flexible in how they can be programmed while also providing the advantages of high reliability (no program crashes or mechanical failures), compact and economical over traditional control systems.

1.2 DCS Systems

 A distributed control system (DCS) is a control system for a process or plant, wherein control elements are distributed throughout the system. This is in contrast to non-distributed systems, which use a single controller at a central location. In a DCS, a hierarchy of controllers is connected by communications networks for command and monitoring.

 We source the equipment from well-known brands in the Industrial Automation field and integrate the system locally.

1.3 ESD Systems

 Emergency Shut-Down System is a safety shutdown system comprising detection, signaling and logical control, valves and actuators, which can, in tandem with alarm  and direct control mechanisms, enable the safe and effective shutdown of plant and machinery in a controlled manner.

1.4 Control panel equipment

 Kish Spark is provides all equipment related to the control panels in accordance with client specifications.


2. Monitoring and SCADA

SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) is a system operating with coded signals over communication channels so as to provide control of remote equipment (using typically one communication channel per remote station). The control system may be combined with a data acquisition system by adding the use of coded signals over communication channels to acquire information about the status of the remote equipment for display or for recording functions. It is a type of industrial control system (ICS). 

SCADA systems deploy multiple software and hardware elements that allow industrial organizations to:

· Monitor, gather, and process data
· Interact with and control machines and devices such as valves, pumps, motors, and more, which are connected through HMI (human-machine interface) software
· Record events into a log file

In basic SCADA architectures, information from sensors or manual inputs are sent to PLCs (programmable logic controllers) or RTUs (remote terminal units), which then send that information to computers with SCADA software. SCADA software analyzes and displays the data in order to help operators and other workers to reduce waste and improve efficiency in the manufacturing process.

Kish Spark also can provide mentioned systems with the best well-known brands in Industrial Automation filed.
