Course Description

SCADA stands for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition. As the name indicates, it is not a full control system, but rather focuses on the supervisory level. This extensive course covers the essentials of SCADA, telemetry and PLC systems, which are often used in close association with each other. This 21-days-program is compromised of practicial part and theoretical part.
