Remote-control systems

Scanmatic delivers remote control systems for the energy sector. The solutions are often based on PLC, or embedded PC, equipped with the necessary IO. The IO can be centralized in a single cabinet or distributed over a bigger area e.g. in different rooms or buildings on the plant. A network solution based on Ethernet is typically used for communication.

The PLC can be equipped with a single CPU or with two CPUs for redundancy.

The PLC communicated with a top-level system e.g. SCADA system, via standard protocols like IEC 60870-5-101/104.

The remote-control system is often equipped with a local user interface based on touch-sensitive graphical displays.

The solution is often powered from a mains supply with a redundant battery bank e.g. +110/220 V DC or +24 V DC.

Relevant solutions for the energy sector are:

  • Remote control of power station
  • Remote control of transformer stations
  • Remote control of pumps
