SCADA

SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) is a system operating with coded signals over communication channels so as to monitor and provide control of remote equipment. Across the country SCADA systems control some of the most critical infrastructure in a wide variety of industries. With hundreds of SCADA installations including some of the largest in the US in our portfolio, Infinity has the expertise to help you design and implement a system that will increase the safety and efficiency in any business.  

Opportunities to use SCADA for monitoring and controlling systems and processes in remote or multiple locations can be found in industries such as manufacturing, mass transit, utilities and power companies. In manufacturing SCADA systems can be used to regulate inventory, implement quality control and automate production. Power companies use SCADA to control power generation and distribution processes and in some cases even sections of the power grid. Utilities find that SCADA systems make it easy to monitor multiple locations of water and sewage services. Mass transit organizations have employed SCADA systems to regulate and automate many critical processes.

SCADA systems are becoming more common in the regulation of heating/cooling equipment, lighting and entry systems in facilities and buildings. Public safety is finding that SCADA can assist with the monitoring of alert and alarm systems as well as environmental units at stations. As technology advances more opportunities for SCADA systems will present themselves. Infinity has the expertise to assist you with the design, implementation and maintenance of SCADA systems.
