A SCADA is software that can be used to monitor factory operations or the industrial process. By using SCADA software, we can combine the hardware and the software to make a better control system. In order to make improvements in the industrial process or to rectify process faults SCADA would send the required command signal to the PLC or an RTU and these devices would control the equipment such as control valve, pumps, ON/OFF valves, etc.,
