WHICH SCADA/IOT PLATFORM?

At Water Automation Technology part of our philosophy is to share global water industry best practice. With over 30 years exposure to various SCADA packages (the 1st system we worked on was a Kent K90 DCS) worldwide our recommendation for the best overall solution on the market is VTScada from Canadian company Trihedral. This platform is the best kept secret in the world of automation, mainly because of it's unique OEM layer that allows system integrators etc. to brand it whatever they like. Used extensively in oil and gas, water and wastewater and industrial automation in general. The package is very powerful and here's why we've adopted this as our SCADA of choice for the UK.

  • Security - Superior security to other packages we've used over the years

  • Scalability - Easily scale from 50 I/O (free licence, try it out) on a desktop to a large distributed system

  • Hardware light - You can run thousands of data-points on a desktop PC. For example a large Water Utility won't require racks and racks of servers. Another reason why overall cost of ownership is far lower

  • Ease of use - Very intuitive and includes many tools 

  • Redundancy - Often difficult to configure however in VTScada it's so easy to set up 

  • RTU/PLC/Controller hardware agnostic - Importantly Trihedral markets their software only and includes a huge library of drivers, which means you can continue using your site control/communications hardware of choice without being pressured to change. From old Allen Bradley DF1, FSK, Modbus, DNP3 etc etc etc to IOT protocol MQTT VTSCADA supports a huge range of communication protocols.  

  • Technical Support - 1st class out of their Aberdeen, Scotland office. We support you as they support us.
