SCADA and Automation
Electric utilities utilize Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems to monitor their systems, detect problem conditions, and perform remote control operations to provide increased reliability and reduction in outages. Manufacturing and industrial organizations use SCADA to improve efficiencies, reduce waste, and operate with smaller staffs. SCADA systems provide in-depth information from across the enterprise which allows for better responsiveness to developing conditions. These systems also store historical data to provide glimpses into the past to determine what occurred or how to improve a process or system.
Automation systems, including Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) and Process Automation Controllers (PAC), are platforms ESC utilizes to design and implement automated system solutions. Our staff’s diverse experience reaches across multiple industries, allowing a very broad perspective and ensuring a team capable of meeting any challenge. We work with clients to develop the most targeted solutions for their unique project challenges based on the application’s best fit. A focus in our approaches is on open or non-proprietary solutions allowing greater flexibility, a larger support network, and greater opportunities for expansion and future migrations, which reduces the likelihood of stranded assets.
