SCADA Deployment Using OPC

SCADA deployment can effectively use OPC provided that the driver's SCADA engine properly handles the unique SCADA communication requirements. Traditionally, SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) deployment has always used proprietary software applications and drivers to enable control centers to effectively manage the large amount of data collected. With the introduction of OPC, there have been various attempts at applying industrial standards to these SCADA based implementations. To help these attempts succeed and avoid significant cost overruns, integrators must differentiate between "plant-based" OPC mentality and SCADA applications.
