Frequently Asked SCADA, DCS and PLC Questions

  • What is DCS?
  • Distributed Control System (DCS) is a type of automated system that is spread throughout a machine to give instructions to various parts of the machine. In DCS system, each unit of the machine has its own system/computer that manages the operation.

  • What is PLC?
  • Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) is a computer control system that constantly monitors functioning of the input devices and on the basis of input device functioning controls functioning of the output devices.

  • What is SCADA?
  • Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) is an industrial automation control system, used in different industries including oil and gas, energy, manufacturing, power, recycling, transportation, etc. It works well in various types of enterprises due its simple configurations.

  • What are the benefits of getting SCADA, DCS and PLC training from MindsMapped?
